I recently switched my Octatrak to a Deluge and was blown away by this instrument! It really fitted perfectly in my current setup. Love the workflow.
However, yesterday when I worked on a song the deluge started to behave strangely. The UI got very laggy. For example when changing presets there were big delays when scrolling between them.
And when I recorded a sequence some notes froze and the sequence got all messed up.
I had like 8 tracks going so I thought that it must be a performance issue so I started to resample the tracks that had active effects. That helped a bit but then I noticed that all these tracks went out of sync eventually?
So after some investigation I found out there was one specific effect on a track that caused the performance-issues, the Custom 2. When I turned it down the lag went away. So now I wonder if there is a way to know what effect is bound to a Custom slot on a patch? I wanna know what it is so I can avoid it.
I must say that I was not expecting this. Haven’t heard anyone complain about the performance on the deluge. What is your experience? And do you have any tips on how to manage the resources?
