My MIDI stops working after I run GigaStudio
for a while. I have to disable and re-enable
the MIDI device using XP Device Manager in order
to get MIDI comes back to life. I am get my
MIDI interface via my sound card. When MIDI
stops working, the audio portion of the sound
card continues to work.
I have 2 different sound cards (from the same
manufacturer though). Both exhibit the same
problem. It is probably not a sound card
I have already tried many things but none
seems to help. Does any one have any idea
of how I should troubleshoot this problem?
Not really. But I have some info here that may
be useful to you. So, read on.
I went through all the running processes on my
machine and removed the ones that I don\'t really
need. For example, things like Norton Anti-virus
automatic updates should be disabled. After I
cut down one-third of my processes, I notice
that my MIDI runs longer before failing.
Also, I usually see the failure when I am playing
big samples of something like 1.5 G or bigger.
Since I only have 512M Ram, I suspect it may
run better with more Ram. So, I am planning
to increase my memory to 1G Ram to see if that
helps. But I have not gotten to it yet. I am
waiting for Ram sale :-) Hopefully, I will get
to it in the next few weeks.
