Record a plugin.
Hello all, so I have come to an inevitable problem. My audio starts crackling once I use too many plugins. I am currently using model 15 and I cannot record two different sounds, because if I change the synth noise it changes both tracks.
How do I permanently record a instrument with a plugin in, so I can remove the plugin to free up some space ?
TL:DR : Too many plugins, can’t record more that one track with model 15.
1 Create a new audio track
2 Set its input to the pad that the synth is on
3 Arm the track (red dot)
4 Hit record.
You sould now have a hard track of your synthesizer that uses very little CPU.
Note - increasing the buffer in BM3 settings will reduce the crackling too.
There are debates about which setting is ‘best all round’ - but my advice is to go up to 512 or even 1024 as this significantly reduces crackling.
Higher buffers result in slightly more delay between pressing a note and hearing sound, so if the numbers I suggest are not working for you, you can experiment with a lower value. Unfortunately Model 15 is one of the most power-hungry AUv3 synths available on iPad (although it does sound amazing)
