I know a lot of people have been having problems with crackles and pops and audio drops outs. There have been a lot of great suggestions and I appreciate them all, but I just don't know what to do anymore.
With a P4 3.6 and 1 gig of RAM and Cubase SX2 I can't even add a drum roll or a single horn overlay to 3 strings and 3 trumpets!? I've checked everything. I'm using all dry samples. I played around with hyperthreading. For me, disabling hyperthreading just added MORE popping. I just configured an optional boot for my system with everything disabled except my sound and video card to maximize memory and I still can't get going.
When the incidents occur my CPU isn't even maxing out. The highest I've seen is about 50%! (I'm still using the GRP Kontakt version).
My creativity is just wiped out. I really like the library, but this just shouldn't be happening. I can't stop to mixdown audio every two seconds...I just can't work like that. Maybe if it was just Cubase users or something, we would have something to work with. But the whole thing seems so random. Some people have everything working just fine. But then others, with a whole range of soundcards, sequencers, processors, drivers etc... report the same damn problems. So it's like, where does one even start?! Well maybe I could get more RAM...but wait, there have been people with 2 gigs reporting the damn difficulties
I think one person on the NI channel said running his sequencer on one computer and the sampler on the other solved everything? Is that what it comes to!?
