I\'ve been following this forum for quite some time now and I must say I love it. Perhaps you guys can help me out here. I\'m a Gigastudio newbie (just bought it a week ago) and I\'m experiencing some problems and don\'t know how to solve \'em.
I\'ve got Gigastudio 160 2.5 beta installed on my Windows ME rackmount computer with around 400 MB RAM and three harddisks (C, D, E - which is on a secondary IDE slave). All drives are 7200 RPM.
I\'m experiencing clicks and pops now and then both in digital and analog mode (I first thought I had clock problems but even when I sent my Audiophile 24/96 a Nanosyncs clock-signal I get the clicks and pops). So I thought it might be the HD\'s; I defragmented all of them but it still happens now and then. I\'m using the MIDI in and OUT of the AUDIOPHILE by the way.
For IDE hard drives, it is best to have the sound playback drive installed to the secondary IDE connector as a master and by itself. Adding another device to the same IDE connector can drag the polyphony down 30 or more notes in some cases. The Primary IDE connector should have the system hard drive as the master and the CD-ROM drive as the slave. You can add more drives to the secondary IDE connector but keep in mind that it could result in a loss of polyphony. Also, hard drive of different speeds - ATA 33, 66, and 100 - on the same IDE channel will revert to the speed of the slowest hard drive on that channel.
