    Unhappy Disk Loss and Drop Outs GPO4

    Hi

    Just installed my newly bought GPO4 on my Vista laptop. When I play the orchestra I get a lot of drop outs. It does not matter if I use standalone or VST plugin mode.

    If I switch to the "Settings" tab in the ARIA Player I can see the disk loss number increasing steadily. Why does this happen and what does disk loss mean?

    I thought that all the samples will be loaded into RAM.

    Btw. it does also not matter which buffer sizes I use...

    Any suggestions?

    Hi

    Can you tell us on which kind of disk the product was installed on?
    Its not all loaded in ram, its streamed

    Ok I thought everything would be put into RAM...

    I have installed the library to an external USB2 HD. The HD is connected through a powered USB2 hub and that hub holds some midi interfaces an dongles for other VSTs.

    Is it better to move the library to a local HD or can I play with some buffer settings to let it stay on the external HD?

    Hi

    This setup clearly would never work for any type of low latency streaming, but since you assumed it was all in ram i cant blame you for trying.
    Yes it would be preferable to connect the drive directly to the computer, or use an internal drive.

    I have connected the drive to a dedicated USB port (directly at the laptop) and it works fine now. Sometimes under a high load the HD load comes up to 40%, but I have no more drop outs / disk losses.

    Thx
