I just bought a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 and as I’m installing USB drivers I read this.
“Please note that the Scarlett 2nd Gen Windows driver specified in the above accompanying article is specifically optimised for use with Pro Tools | First. If you wish to use any other DAW exclusively (i.e. NOT use Pro Tools | First), please download and use the driver specified in your user account, the Scarlett 2nd Gen download pages or alternatively please find that download HERE”
“If you wish to run multiple DAWs on your Windows PC, including Pro Tools | First, you can use the PTF optimised USB driver version outlined in the above mentioned accompanying article, however you will experience the following behaviour:”
"You many find high CPU usage at the following settings:
44.1khz: 64 and 128
88.2khz: 128 and 256
176.4khz: 256 and 512
If this disrupts your audio, causing glitches and pops, please try a different buffer size."
Does this mean if I want to install Pro Tools/ First I’m going to have all sorts of problems?
Ableton Live Lite comes with the interface also and I have Reaper installed on my computer too.
I was hoping I could try out Pro Tools but it seems like it might end up causing me more headaches.
Should I install the driver and give it a try …, or should I avoid it?
