Unhappy performace problems with reason essentials

I have a pc with win 7 64 bit
3.0Ghz I5 processor
8GB RAM
RME UFX Firewire

When i use propellerhead reason essentials as effect rack (incoming audio from fireface , outgoing to fireface) after a few minutes sound start crackling and fades away until i reselect my audio interface in settings , then after few minutes the same again.

Tried to set buffers higher ,but still this happens.

I'm really worried , should an i5 3.0 Ghz not be enough to handle this ?

Is there something i can do about it ,am i the only one that has this problem ?

Please help me on this
:-)

If you're working on a very complex song with a lot of CPU intensive effects then it's possible that your computer's not up to the job, but that wouldn't be my first guess. Especially since the audio is fading away until you reselect your interface.

Since you say it starts happening after a few minutes, not whenever you try to play the track or something like that, I'd suspect that it's an issue with your hardware or the driver for it.

Just to make sure it's not your computer running out of resources though, watch the little DSP meter at the bottom of the screen in Reason. It has a maximum of 9 tiny bars, and if it gets up that high then your computer will be struggling and will probably pop up a window saying that it's too slow to play back the song. In that case you have to get it started again by pressing Play or Stop before you'll get any more sound out of it.

If the DSP meter is staying low or in the middle somewhere though, you can pretty much rule out lack of processing power, and I'd focus on an issue with your interface. Maybe try disconnecting it for a while to see if you have any issues without it.
