No matter what I try i am getting clipping in Lores presets. This stops somewhat, although not exclusively, when I silence one of the three voices. there is still spiking in the CPU usage. I am using Kontakt player 6.7.1 in Ableton Live on a Mac.

    Do you get the same in Kontakt in standalone ? Do Kontakt and Ableton have Full Disk Access ?

    How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS

    Is this library installed on an external hard drive ? What format is that drive ?

    Thank you for your help. The same clipping problem happens in Kontakt standalone and in Kontakt Kontrol. I enabled Full Disk Access as you suggested but no change in the clipping. The Lores library is installed on an external hard drive in ExFAT format.

    I see, then that's the source of your performance issues, ExFAT formatted disks are known to cause this kind of issues. We recommend formatting your drive to MacOs extended (journaled) or APFS (for newer operating systems), as explained in this article: Notes on Network Drives and Disk Formats
