Kontakt 7 is causing high CPU usage on Mac Studio M1 Max
I bought Kontakt 7 ( although I have the collectors edition 13) to finally be able to work with Kontakt again under Mac OS Ventura.
Unfortunately this is an (almost) impossible task on my computer, because with a single Kontakt instance ( and an instrument like. e.g. Pharlight ) 20% - 30% CPU usage is reached
and it goes up to overload when more notes ar played. It is not even possible to load multiple instruments because then I immediately have a CPU overload.
Either Kontakt 7 was not programmed correctly or...I have no idea!?
Has anyone had similar experiences?
Before the general tips and inquiries are asked:
Mac Studio M1 Max/ 32GB/ 1TB internal SSD.
Mac OS Ventura 13.1
-> Why Ventura? The nice dealer (who is also an official Apple Repair Partner) replaced the Logic Board for me and although I asked him to play back Monterey in any case, he did the update to Ventura.
Ableton 11 (current version)
RME UCX with current drivers
Current version (dark)
Hard disks for Kontakt:
External SSD only for Kontakt libraries
I really need help because since I switched to Mac Studio 5 months ago I have only problems and I can't make music anymore.
Additionally, a call to the people here with similar setup, please get in touch with me.
Thanks in advance
