For the first time I have playback problems with Finale 2008 and GPO.
This is happening in a score of 20 staves at a point where most instruments are sounding towards the end of the score. It starts with some interference briefly followed by stuttering and cutting out. Playback then resumes but is around a bar behind the moving pointer. The music then cuts out again and restarts where the pointer has reached. This doesn't happen on every playback but does happen most of the time.
I have used Finale for many years and with GPO since 2003/2004 and have never had any playback problems before.
I believe my system is more than capable of handling Finale and GPO and I don't consider 20 staves to be a particularly large score.
My setup is as follows:
Processor: Intel P4 3.4 GB.
Memory: 4 GB DD2 Ballistix RAM.
Hard Drive: Samsung 120 GB with 50% free space.
Interface: M-Audio Audiophile 192 High Definition PCI Card.
Graphics: N-Vidia GeForce 6600 GT 128MB 560MHz GDDR3 RAM
Cooling: Water Cooled.
Power Suppy: Jeantec Quiet 120 mm horizontal fan, 450 Watts.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Finale 2008 and GPO. I have all the latest updates including driver updates; I am using the latest KP2.2.4. I have defragged my hard drive and cleaned out my system emptying my cache and Temp files.
As I mentioned, this is the first time ever that I have had this type of (playback) problem. Can anyone suggest what might be causing this problem? I would be very grateful for any suggestions.
