I HAD A VERY COMPETENT COMPUTER....... AND I found Ivory's latency terrible. I was using it on a Yamaha S70xs and iMAC 2.6 DUAL CORE..... 4 megs ram......and my yammy blew it away...... for sound and feel. I actually couldnt believe the latency.. and i tried different velocity curves.. but still not great.......but if i have to fuss THAT much with a piano.... im not interested....... do you have to fuss with a real one? NOPE......

That's weird because I'm using Realtek's integrated soundcard and I'm getting 1 ms latency with asio4all. ;)

It's not your processor speed that's the problem there - it's your hard disk. I have an iMac 2.3 but have the library files on an external firewire hardrive - not latency problems. The sounds are spooled off your hard drive and if the operating system is using it too you will get latency

It's a bit expensive but having a large Solid State Disk (SSD) is great for streaming samples.

Are you sure you are using the ASIO drivers for the card. I get 1.5 ms latency
