I am experiencing audio dropouts using Sonar Producer Edition (no effects added) with no more than 10 to 15 instruments. The CPU meter gets to around 35-40% and things started falling apart right and left.
I have a P4 2.4GHZ 400 FSB with 1.5 GB of memory. I have an MAudio Delta 44 audio card that supports both ASIO and WDM drivers. I have UDMA 133MHZ adapters with 7200 RPM EIDE drives.
I have talked to many people who give many suggestions, but symptoms change and I am getting more and more confused on how I should optimze my audio system.
Can anyone that has a successfully running system with Sonar give me a list of settings on their system (for Sonar and sound card). Do this, do this, do this, etc. would be great. I have tried things like incresing latency (which drives me nuts on playing my keyboard), increasing buffer sizes, number of buffers, etc. Help!!!
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
