I’ve found with my slower computer (2015 MacBook Pro) the latency when recording via realtime MIDI is distractingly slow, even with the buffer set to as low a setting as I’m able. I was therefore wondering if Dorico is considering something similar to Logic Pro’s “Low Latency Mode” setting. This is a setting, when invoked, that reduces the CPU load by eliminating any fx plug-ins or other unnecessary elements that could slow the computer down, allowing MIDI input to be truly in “realtime” (albeit with the playback not reflecting the current state of things as far as fx, etc.).
I know (Dan?) suggested temporarily turning off Midi Thru as another option whenever one records MIDI in real-time, but (unless I’m misunderstanding) doing so also prevents a given staff you’re recording to from being audible when recording (or even when wanting to just hear the sounds of a particular staff by clicking on a given staff temporarily, etc.), plus it seems cumbersome to have to turn off/on MIDI thru whenever I want to record.
Thanks for any thoughts!
