Eric Persing or anyone that can help me:
Now this one has me stumped. I have been using Stylus RMX happily for a long time now.
Today I decided to make a new groove for a game trailer I am working on. I loaded in some grooves already made for inspiration and did not notice at first the problem.
I then added some groove elements (like Bongos) and THEN I heard the problem. Glitches in the audio - in fact, some of the grooves actually have this glitch as a sound, so I thought nothing of it.
Then I started hearing it all over the place.
Mind you, this is in Sonar 5 Producer.
So I rebooted, thinking I was low on memory. Still happened.
I panicked, so I re-installed EVERYTHING - including the update.
I re-ran it as above - still glitching all over the place.
So I ran a new version of Sonar and started a new project with only Stylus RMX - still happened.
So I ran Orion Platinum 7 and it still happened.
So I ran it stand alone - it still happened.
Then I took a good long listen and it also did not sound as AWESOME as Stylus usually sounds. It sounded kinda FLAT.
Now, no other problems are happening with any other synth. All my programs are working fine and audio plays back nicely on DVDs, mp3s, etc.
So it cannot be the audio driver of my EMU 1820M - and all of a sudden????
I reinstalled - including the library, so it's not corrupt files?
The audio programs are working great and Stylus RMX glitched in stand alone too (using VST Host's little cousin SAViHost)
I have a AMD64 2.8ghz with 2GB ram.
I am pretty darn sure it is not a audio driver issue or other things would be glitching - but it's ONLY Stylus RMX, regardless of host or what's running.
I did also end any process in the Task Manager that was not system level or part of Sonar. I have had zero problems with Stylus RMX in the past and it has worked flawlessly with my antivirus protection - which has not changed.
My cpu was at 24% with Stylus RMX sporting a 4 track groove and Mesa + ADD sitting in the background with a 6 track groove. I am running ASIO drivers and I tried 20MS, 75MS and 100MS - glitched regardless of MS and it ALWAYS worked on 20MS flawlessly before - for umpteen scores I have done.
Like I said, I also tried Stylus RMX without anything else and same problems.
The only thing I did do recently was copy an image of my little 30GB system drive that was always maxed out and replaced it - and copied it - to a 300GB drive - now my system drive.
Every program has worked FLAWLESSLY since I did it, includng Windows XP!
HELP!!!! I need my Stylus RMX and I need it quick!!!
Thanks in advance - please help me solve this.
