OK, so some of you may seen my question a few months ago.
So I've bought the virus snow.. I have had it for 4 weeks now and ive packed it back into its box. I have not used it yet due to not being able to set it up properly.
My PC specs at the moment are the following:
Intel Core TM i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHZ 3.06 GHz
64 Bit Operating System
Running Windows 7 Ultimate
My Motherboard is a Gigabyte X58-USB3
So basically I've tried everything to get my production running at 256
samples or even at 512 so that my access virus snow would work, but i
just cant seem to get it down to those low samples. If i do, there are
crackles and all sorts of crazy st*t. What's upsetting is I've stopped
making music for the past month because I just want to fix the problem.
I've tried everything from emailing Focus-rite and virus and even
Ableton with no success they kinda all just pass it on "There is not a problem with the DAW, or there is a not a problem with the Virus" - Yeah i know that but i need a hand
Im lstarting to believe that the problem lies within the computer, maybe its
the motherboard or something frustrating that just doesn't work well
with DAWs and music in general. (oh and Ive tried updating all sorts of
drivers from the motherboard, to the sound card, to the USU drivers) -
with no prevail. Ive DPC latency checks, ive sent Ableton reports to Ableton itself..
My question is, Im going to start fresh and build another computer(only because i feel i have no other choice right now????) and
pray to god that everything works fine (cant afford a MAC i dont think)
and try use parts from my current computer like perhaps the i7 and the
RAM and my video card which is decent and build it this time ensuring
that it will work on low samples so everything works with my setup.
Can anybody advise me on my options and what to do? And or help me build
something that will most certainly work whilst using some of my current
hardware in my current PC. I think the motherboard has to go? and get
something that other people have no issues with?
ive also fixed the (@OP, Windows 7 has Core Parking Enabled by default. Follow Kermit the Frog's steps in the vid & Disable Core Parking.) ALL CPU's are running.
I tried it in ASIO mode again and it just doesn't want to move from 442 buffer rate please have a look below
View image: 442
Below is a photo of it running smoothly without ASIO with software instruments. http://s7.postimage.org/leqs8ojx7/4000.jpg
Thanks in advance guys.
