Gary, I removed analog Factory in case that caused it, upgraded to Mainstage 2.2.2. but still when opening my concert in 64 bits the CPU is way up in the red. In 32 bit there are no such probs but the sound often cuts out for a few seconds while playing. A typical patch may use 2 exs24 ch strips and a MTron Pro and Kontakt 4 ch strips too. All are the most recent versions. I have a buffer of 512 but the keybd feels a little muddy but I am trying to cut down on the sounds cutting out briefly during performance. I have Macbook pro 8GB ram 2.8GHz speed and my computer split into my music part and my email etc and domestic part. I wonder if the Mtron pro can't handle 64 bits. Any further thoughts?
