I’ve done some searching on this forum and haven’t found a solution to my problem yet:
Navigating around Dorico is very, very frustrating at the moment. Things like switching between Write and Engrave take 10-15 seconds. Right-clicking and then scrolling between different options (eg between Filter and Dynamics) is the same. Ditto when switching between Safari and Dorico. Even just selecting notes can take this time.
This isn’t always happening, but it’s a large percentage of the time - enough to ruin my flow and make me want to throw my computer in the pool. Not sure if this is relevant but I’ve checked Activity Monitor: When idle, “VST Audio Engine” is 69% (CPU), 6.7GB (Memory) and 71 (Energy).
I’ve tried the MIDI loop advice and also turning MIDI Thru off. No deal. I’ve tried adjusting the audio latency. No deal. I’ve tried creating a smaller layout with just two instruments. No deal. The only thing that is making me feel better is my bottle of Glen Grant 10yr Old.
This doesn’t happen with my old software and I’m aware that Dorico’s engine works completely differently, but can anyone help me?
I’m running Catalina 10.5
2.9Ghz Quad-core i7
External Thunderbolt 3 screen
Apogee Duet 2
YAMAHA S90ES (driver is up to date)
