am running GS on a dedicated machine and would like to run asio. Soundcardmanufacturer recommended gsfix to move GS from realtime to high priority (to get rid of the crackles at 1.5ms and 3ms latencies).
I d/led what I think is the latest version (1.010), and installed it. When I launch the program, it displays a big \"GS not installed\" in yellow letters.
The GSFix website says that as of this version gstudio 2.5 is supported (which is what I\'m using).
Does anyone of you use that tool and possibly know how to make it recognize Gstudio?
it changes thread priorities I believe, by gstudio one step down (from realtime to high) its supposed to result in the ability to use asio and gsif at the same time at low latencies (RME FAQ links to that site).
according to that website if you use it standalone without a sequencer on the same system, it isn\'t (and I do have the problems described on the RME website, as soon as any single note leaves the asio client and gstudio at the same time, regardless or ram, cpu and hd weight.
I use GStudio V2.5 + Reason + VST 5.1 all at the same time on a P3-1GHz, 512mb rambus, 40gb maxtor IDE hdd based system. No need for GsFix just make sure you\'re using Windows 2000 pro (this is key to curing all hideous cracks and pops). The CPU overhead on a Win9X system is excessive when running this lot together, but under W2K...oh yes indeed.....smooth as an 18 year old lap dancer\'s bottom (apparantly!)
Thanks for the tip and effort sharing the knowledge, but I believe its a different situation when theres no sequencer running on that same system (at least the gsfix page says there is, if you\'re running a sequencer on that system, gs will take care of the thread priority automatically as of gs v2.2), with something other than a sequencer, gs seems to not know its supposed to change priorities.
I\'m using win2k pro in a standard pc install btw, gs alone works like a charm, as does reason alone.
I believe the priority problem doesn\'t lie in gstudio in my problem, but in reason (now that gsfix does work with an updated version on the gsfix site, i still have the same crackling, and its only in gstudio, reason does not crackle).
Wondering how to get reason to be less egoistic :|
