I have some questions about reducing RAM and CPU use. I’ve just done my first live gig using Ebosuite as part of a live drum triggering set up with all the MIDI triggers on my drum kit linked to different video clips for each track. I’m also manipulating these through velocity, expression control on a Keith McMillen BopPad and an expression pedal and am running lot of audio plug ins and software synths, etc. As a result I’m putting a lot of strain on CPU and RAM. I’ve been experimenting with ways of reducing this but wanted to ask a couple of things.
I’ve been using “load new region” to free up RAM but does this free as much RAM as actually trimming the original clip outside of Ebosuite and only loading the shorter complete clip? I’m wondering if I’m better to go back and trim all of the original clips in to parts. If this second approach does free more RAM would there be a way to build a “create new clip” feature in to the eSampler so that it generates a new shorter file?
Disabling eSampler? During my live set I’ve been trying to disable devices when they’re not in use (either manually or using the Green Switch or Mute Means Disable device to automatically disable all devices on a muted track). However, I’ve noticed a weird bug with the eSampler in that I can’t seem to switch it on and off. The “on” button in the top left of the eSampler is permanently “on” and lit yellow and doesn’t go off when I click on it. However, I’m mostly using the eSampler inside of a drum rack or instrument rack so I’ve generally just been disabling the entire rack instead. It doesn’t seem right that you can’t turn the eSampler off though. Are you able to check this out?
Overall I’m loving EboSuite. I’ve been posting some videos on my instagram channel @stubrowndrums of my recent experiments and live use. I’ll upload some here shortly. I’m going to be using it a lot more in the near future so I just want to get everything running as smoothly as possible in Live now so that my live shows go without any technical hitches.
