Record System Requirements
Okay, now that I have maxed out my RAM, I think can say two things with much confidence:
The pertinent published system requirements:
So I took a chance and maxed out the RAM to 4GB. I did not add the 3GB switch to the boot ini file as the onoard video is sharing RAM, so really I have about 3.26GB available and I figured I might get reduced kernel performance if I added the 3GB switch.
Anyway, the computer naturally works a lot better in general now with the extra RAM. There was a very noticeable reduction in paging to disk. Reason also performs better; no more pops or clicks with my limited testing since upgrading the RAM. Record now loads faster, but it still can't play the demo Baguettes song worth a darn.
So I would say for Record, multiple cores appears to be even more important than lots of RAM. I have a decent amount of RAM now and my processor is spec’ed 50% faster than the recommended minimum. Clearly, Record is optimized for multiple cores.
Your statement- "M-Audio Audiophile 2496"
Under the card's hardware settings (start/settings/controlpanel/m-audio)
Hardware tab - what are the sample settings? Try 44100 sample rate, AND ASIO/WDM buffer size of 256 samples.
Then try WDM instead of ASIO to clear up the pop / sputter /dropouts.
If that does not work, lower the sample rate in steps until the problem is corrected. 32 24 22 16...
You should shut down and restart reason/record between each change in setting to be safe the change is updated.
Larger buffer size creates latency. 5 ms is all I can take.
You can also try dedicating your computer to only music. THEN ASIO becomes an option possibly.
Detach from internet. Pull the plug out.
How many microphones will you record from at once?
I would like 12. I have 2. 2 xlr connections or 4 or 8 are on the hardware sheet above. I use M-Audio 8 ins (6 rca / 2 xlr) @ 100 $Usd
