Latency with some Kontakt instruments

I use a Mini Mac M1 with Kontakt, SSL 2+ audio card and only some Kontakt instruments are showing latency, in others the operation is normal.

Overall = 37 ms and latency = 64 or 32 samples, I've already changed it to several values ​​without success.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve it?

    Hello Kaiwan_NI, thanks for your help.

    My system meets all of Kontakt's optimization guidelines but the latency of some instruments still continues.

    I use a Mac M1 with 16GB, 1TB internal SSD and a 2TB external SSD connected by thunderbolt and where are my libraries.

    My system is all up to date as per the document and the problem persists. If you have any more tips, I'd appreciate it.

    Hi Kubrak,

    I use it with logic pro, but for testing I'm just using kontakt with nothing.

    Just by pressing the key on the keyboard, you can feel the latency and only in some samplers.

    You said only with some instruments, which instruments?

    Areia - Staccato has latency.

    Now in Forno Essentials, when I'm playing the track, the volume of the sampler goes down by itself.

    Sometimes Logic displays this screen.
