    Hi,

    I have been using Live Professor for quite a while now, but I am contemplating replacing the PC to one that packs a lot more
    processing power, more RAM and cache. One of the reason being that some of the plug-ins I use appear to be CPU hogs and need
    lots of processing power. From what I have understood (at least if using a DAW rather than a VST Host), most of the latency
    issues are often not related to the “Host” or DAW but rather plug-ins.

    What is the most straightforward way to port my audio processing environment to a brand new PC, ensuring that my processing
    environment and “experience” will be the same that it is currently?

    Awaiting suggestions! Thanks!

    Hi

    issues are often not related to the “Host” or DAW but rather plug-ins.

    Yes, there are two main places where latency is introduced. The buffer of the audio device (set in Audio & Midi Options) and any additional buffering in plugins.
    Not all plugins do this, the latency of the plugin is displayed in the plugin UI inside LiveProfessor, and in the chain.

    What is the most straightforward way to port my audio processing environment to a brand new PC, ensuring that my processing
    environment and “experience” will be the same that it is currently?

    Unfortunately, there is no way around the pain of installing all the plugins on the new machine.
    Make sure all plugins are installed.

    Open LiveProfessor, scan for plugins, make sure they all work.

    Transfer the Liveprofessor project to the new computer on a Usb-Stick or such, open it and make sure everything is as it should.
