I have a dedicated gigastudio/VSTi computer, and used the tascam guides for optimization.
When I start Gigastudio without loading any .gig file the processor meter (in gigastudio, not in windows) is going shortly to 20 to 50% and then going back to 4%. This is randomly and around 1 time in 2 seconds..
When I load instruments, the meters is standing on say 40% and rising shortly over the 100%. You can imagine that then there is no smooth playback. In other word, I can\'t use Gigastudio [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
Please some advise, I can imagine that it is the soundcard but that soundcard has done a good job in a old 500mhz win98se setup.
Here the system specs:
System software: Win XP prof.
Soundcard: Aardvark 20/20+
Software used: Gigastudio 2.54 and v-stack
Midi interface: midiman 4x4
motherboard: asus p4pe-x/se
memory: 2x corsair 512MB
processor: intel PIV 2.4 GHz
Videocard: Asus V9180magic (gf4 mx440se)
hardisk: 2x WD JB serie 120 en 80 gig
cdr: Asus Rewriter 52x24x52x
I don\'t think it\'s your soundcard. Soundcards are not going to affect your CPU\'s power. It sounds like there\'s no correlation between CPU usage and GS, which would lead me to believe that it\'s an XP issue. That\'s about all I can offer though. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
