Will audio interface tame EastWest Play?

Recommended Posts

My system, i5 9600 6core, 24g ram, 2 Evo 860 ssd. Realtek onboard audio.

 

Running Wasapi shared or exclusive, up to date Cakewalk.

 

I've been very happy with Vsl Synchron, Orchtools Sine, Spitfire Labs players.

 

So I tried the $29 a month EastWest package, no long term commitments.

 

I knew Play was very resource hungry.  And, for the first time, I'm hearing pops and clicks, and noticeable latency from midi controller.

 

I have not tweaked much, will google and fiddle.

 

I would like opinions if I should jump to dedicated audio, either soundcard or usb external.  And suggestions on brands ...

Yes. Definitely disable that onboard audio and invest in a proper usb interface. Something by Audient or Focusrite for around $100 to $200 would be a good starter. If you can spend more do it and look at the higher end offerings from those two brands. To help w/ latency you'll be adjusting the buffer on the interface to find a good balance between acceptable latency and no pops/clicks.
