Acoustic feedback doesn't always work properly

This is something I used regularly on C7.5 and older:

  1. Create an instrument track
  2. Make a MIDI clip
  3. Go into the MIDI clip
  4. Use the pencil tool and add a couple of 16th notes
  5. Make sure the “Acoustic feedback” button is lit
  6. Click and hold with the mouse - drag a note up and down - you hear audio from the VSTi
  7. Select a note with the mouse - now press up/down on the keyboard - you hear nothing

This seems to only happen on some VSTis and I can’t figure out why.
It also only seems to happen on short notes. In fact, if I enlarge these notes to 8th notes, then this DOES work OK.

Try this project:

“Warmth” works (with keyboard).
“Meh” does not.

+1 I’ve the same issue with pizzicato notes with Spitfire libraries. Annoying issue. But if the notes are long enough the feedback works well.

Do you guys work with low amount of RAM?

I have the same issue and i have the feeling it’s related to the RAM being full so the sample supposed to be voice-feedbacked can’t be played…
(I don’t have much RAM and work with an external hard-drive)

I’m not sure but that could be an explanation…

Anyone more insights?
