also it is better to have Kontakt in the DAW, if you put it in VEP you will add another layer in the processing.

Where do you get this?? What is the meaning of 'another layer in the processing', and how does it vacate the whole notion of using VE Pro for plugins such as Kontakt? I think this is nonsense. I reckon it adds another layer in the processing for 'the DAW' as well, for instance.

MY experience is that Kontakt|VE Pro is VASTLY more efficient than Kontakt as a plugin in Cubase. Because the plugin is not waiting in line for CPU, for one thing.

Uh, yeah.. it's quite odd to say that Kontakt does not work as well in VE Pro as it does within the sequencer.

I think I'll contact official tech support. :)

Buffer settings make no difference.. again, sometimes VE Pro works fine, sometimes not. Directory Manager doesn't matter, since I'm not using any Vienna instruments. Kontakt only.

It was a good idea to tell us that first ;)

It just spiked a while ago at around 60-70%. In Activity Monitor it said 450% CPU usage! The only thing that fixes it is restarting VE Pro and reloading my template. Now it's idling at around 25%. Activity Monitor reports around 170% CPU usage.

What is the value of the "Swap used" ?

What are the value of the settings of K5 ?
