MainStage: Sound becomes choppy or distorted

The sound in MainStage may become choppy, with dropouts or unwanted distortion. When this happens, MainStage may also seem less responsive.

This may happen when you use long impulse responses with instances of the Space Designer plug-in. If you encounter this issue, here are some suggestions for avoiding it:

  • Select impulse responses with shorter decay times for any Space Designer instances you are using in your concert.
  • If you are using a high sample rate, try reducing it by choosing MainStage > Preferences > Audio > Sample Rate.
  • Performance can be related to CPU power and RAM. If your computer has minimal RAM, adding more may help with this issue.
