Hanging up, skipping...

Multiple tracks Hang up

I’ve read the information in the FAQ’s as directed, and I’ve set my buffering as low as possible for playback and I still get hang-ups and skips…I can solve it by mixing down to one track but that’s not the answer because then I can’t work with the individual tracks.

This is what I have: Dell w/Microsoft Windows XP professional, m-Audio 192 Soundcard; Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz, Processor speed 2.73 GHz; Memor: 1024 MB.

Is this not a fast enough hard drive? I thought it was, but I don’t know what else to do.

I appreciate your help.

Your system and drive are plenty fast for 20 or more 16bit/44.1kHz tracks. What bit depth/sample rate are you using?

Try setting the buffering higher - generally lower buffering requires more from the machine.

What drivers are you using? ASIO, WDM, MME? Try a different driver type.

Make sure you’re not running any background programs (virus scanners etc).
