I\'ve been using gigastudio with opus 1 for about a month now. Until yesterday I had no problems. I was just finishing a project and loading the last sample I needed when gigastudio crashed. So, I had to restart my computer by pressing the restart button. Now, every time I try to use gigastudio there is popping, crackling, and even sometimes wrong notes. The project I was working on had 32 samples loaded and lots of polyphony, but this doesn\'t matter. The problem still persist even when I open a document with only one monophonic sample. The wierd thing is, it kind of gets better once I\'ve played through the loaded samples a few times, but the popping and crackling never completely disappears. Why this problem out of the blue? I was hoping someone could please tell me what I can do. I am scoring a film and the music was due yesterday, I\'m in a huge panic. I would appreciate ANY help anyone could provide. Here are my system specs:
p4 3.0 gig
1 gig of ram
420 power supply
RME hammerfall card
opus 1 samples
2 80 gig 7200rpm hard drives (1 dedicated for my samples only)
Popping and cracking generally comes from overloaded volume (in my experience), try to lower the main volume (master in the dsp), then lower serveral instruments. Maybe your soundcard is overloaded, try to lower the main volume.
