I’m frustrated

Can't use the Q49 properly due to almost delayed/laggy/not played notes

Can't use the Q49 on my Mac (2018) with FL Studio 20 properly. Plugged the keyboard in, went to MIDI-settings and enabled it. Tried to play a few keys; some of them were delayed, some of them were long even tho I played them short, some of them didn't made a sound at all. It's also pretty laggy.

What can I do to fix this issue?

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting.

    Can you please provide me with your full system specs?

    Every recording program has an options, settings or preferences page where the user can adjust the buffer size. Buffer size governs the amount of time the computer is given to respond to requests (for audio processing in this case). The larger the buffer size, the more time the computer has to respond. Large buffer sizes allow the computer to handle more work without choking. This prevents pops, clicks, chattering and skipping caused by an overloaded processor, but at the cost of higher latency. Smaller buffer sizes reduce the overall amount of work the computer can handle, but it can do so with lower latency. Latency refers to the time it takes the computer to respond to input. If latency is high, signals routed into the computer and back out to speakers or headphones may be audibly delayed.

    Refer to this helpful article here regarding how to optimizing your system, improve performance, and manage latency. I hope this helps!

  • Hi,

    to my system specs: Its the MacBook from 2017 (sorry, was a mistake in my previous text) with a 2,3 Intel Core i5 and 8gb of ram.

    I tried everything from the article but the same problems occurred. Nothing changed at all.
    Can you tell me specific changes I need to do in FL Studio? I can't find anything online.

  • I'm not familiar with that software you're using, but this guide from FL Studio's website should point you in the right direction as far as optimizing your performance in the software is concerned:
