Let me first say that I’m very excited to have this wonderful program and that I’m sure it will exceed my expectations, I’m also anticipating very greatly to hear others works and to submit my own, as I only do this as a hobby. I’m a university student and have always enjoyed composing, and I couldn’t pass up this program for the price!
Anyways, I’m pretty much new to this experience, although I have had some experience with Cubase Vst v4.0. My main question is:
When I try to play a piece I’ve written with as little as 4 instruments, there seems to be pauses/ cracks that occur, and instruments cease to play at all for seconds or more. My soundcard is a Realtek AC97 audio, and I’m wondering if this may be the culprit, as my System includes a 2.6 Ghz processor and I have 1 Gb of Ram. I’m not too sure of the quality of this soundcard system, but I’m pretty sure its not that great, as it came with my computer system. Also, I am experiencing some latency with my instruments, and am wondering if the soundcard could be to blame as well, or if its just a case of my ASIO drivers.
There’s no possible way I can listen to a full orchestra if Cubase can’t even play 4 instruments together, so any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.
