Stradivari Violin CPU overload?

Hi Guys,

I'm having trouble using the Stradivari Violin as when I try to play it, I constantly get strikes and glitches with every single note. I have upped my buffer size all the way and this makes no difference. I'm just a bit confused as the recommended RAM for getting the Komplete Ultimate bundle was 6GM and I have 8GB.

Im using the new Macbook Air, 2022. M2 chip, 8GB RAM, running macOS Sonoma version 14.2.1.

Thanks!

    Did you install this library on an external hard drive? What is the format of that drive? IT should be formatted to APFS: Notes on Hard Drive Formats on Mac Computers

    Thanks for the reply Jeremy, I'm using a Samsung T7 external Harddrive, formatted in 'ExFAT'. However when I try to change this, the only format options are:

    Mac-OS Extended (journaled)

    Mac-OS Extended (journaled, case-sensitive)

    ExFAT

    MS-DOS (FAT).

    (there is no option for APFS?)

    @HarryTurner If your hard drive doesn't allow APFS, then you should go with Mac-OS Extended (journaled).

    The samsung T7 can be formatted to APFS, i've done it on two, you just need to format up a level from the default and the option becomes available;

    In the disk utility you need to go to "View" and select "show all devices".

    Only then you will see the outside Container (most likely called "SAmsung PSSD T7 Media"

    If you select this you can use "Erase"

    Make sure to select GUID Partition... , only then you can select APFS as Format

    Thanks a lot for this, I have found that and hopefully this is the solution to my problem. Now my only issue is that I have 1TB of data on that drive from native instruments. Do you know the best way to erase all this data so that I can re-format the drive and put the data back on without running into any issues?

    If you have any old spare external drives it's easy, native access has a relocate all function to move data from a drive to another. Do that, format the fast drive, then relocate back to the fast drive.

    If you dont, you could just format the drive and download the stuff again, not a problem for me as I have fast internet, may be an issue for you. It will probably say something like 'repair' next to the broken link in native access if you do this, so you would just click this and go reinstall.
