Using ASIO driver. Recording single track sounds ok, minimal popping sounds. Recording six at once = horrible drops and such with an occasional crash
A) Sound Card (Project Mix I/O): Sample rate 44100 Hz; ASIO/WDM buffer size 128 samples
B) SONAR Audio Options:
-General tab: 2.9 msec; 128 samples. ASIO In and out 5.4 msec and 236 samples, roundtrip 10.7 msec, 472 samples
-Advanced tab: Playback I/O 128 KB and record I/O 128 KB; Use ASIO reprted latency (236) is checked
As I am trying to learn what the relationship is between each of these settings, I did a few things here and there, only to make the drops worse. I next tried to determine what parameters change when you input a value in one of these.
1= ASIO/WDM buffer size on sound card
2= Buffer size in Audio options -> General tab
3= ASIO Input and Output (and total roundtrip) reported latencies, also general tab
4= Advanced tab; Playback I/O and Record I/O
5= Checkbox for "use ASIO reported latency"
Increase 1 from 128 to 384
Result: 2 doubles; 3 doubles; 4 stays the same; 5 doubles
set 1 back to 128; Increase 4 from 128 to 384
Result: All stay the same
So, To me it seems logical to simply match the setting in "4" with everything else. But, doing so at four different latencies attempted (128, 256, 384, 512) does not remove the drops.
I'm pretty sure I even matched "4" with the values in "total roundtrip" rather than only In or Out. Your thoughts on troubleshooting would be very much appreciated. I will answer any questions as best I can.
