    SOLVED: DS libraries with Monolith .wav files will only work when streaming is checked in DS preferences (higher buffer setting possibly as well), instead of loading to RAM which is how I had it set. Thanks to user bo din for the tip.

    Indeed, David Hilowitz got back to me and said the same thing. The thing is, I never even considered looking at disk streaming because I’ve always had the samples load to RAM. I just assumed that would be the better option, especially considering the libraries aren’t super heavy. Thanks bo din for the help. Now I can regain my sanity.

    Finally, someone who can explain what the issue is. Thank you. So now I have to figure out why High Sierra is playing into this because my beat up MacBook Pro running Mojave can use DS no problem.

    I just tried The Cool Piano and no dice. That one actually takes quite a bit longer to load, but still no sound. It’s very strange that only his samples wouldn’t sound under macOS High Sierra. It makes no sense. I’ve opened up his .dspreset files in an editor and tried to compare to other user’s samples that are working and I can’t really see anything different, aside from spacing. I’ve also tried just loading the .dspreset and also compressing the folder to a .dslibrary extension. No difference. More than anything, I just want to know why this is happening. I have been in touch with David Hilowitz about other DS issues pertaining to AAX and Pro Tools, which is now sorted, but he never responded when I asked about my issue with Christian’s samples.

    Ok, so I just did some further troubleshooting and for some odd reason I think it may be macOS related on my end. My main rig is with Pro Tools on High Sierra and none of Christian’s .DS files work with any plugin format. AAX natively, AU/VST/VST3 with a wrapper, or Standalone. All my other Pianobook samples/.DS work fine.

    Now, my laptop is running macOS Mojave and Christian’s samples work with DS in Standalone and AU in Logic 10. How strange is that? It seems highly unlikely that only his .DS files would give me trouble in macOS High Sierra, but this is the only thing I can think of.

    And as I said above, I can get his .sfz files to work with sforzando in Pro Tools on macOS High Sierra, so there is something about his .DS files and High Sierra that doesn’t jive, or that’s what it appears to be.

    Thanks for trying to reply to me. So I’m confused, those sample are working for you, or not? And this IS a known issue with Christian’s samples? I was able to get the Family Grand .sfz to play fine using sforzando as a workaround, but now that DS is really making progress (AAX support is great for us PT users), it would be nice to just use that instead. Trying to remember which sample player to use with which samples is a joy kill.

    I was thinking of maybe messaging the user on here who converted all of the ESX24 samples to DS and see if he could somehow take a look at Christian’s DS files, to see if there is an easy fix to the coding?
