Do i need new hardware?
I'm experiencing some problems with high cpu load. Not in OS cpu-monitor. But abletons cpu-meter. I get alot of cracks in the sound, and high cpu load after only adding a few synths, and fx's. My hardware is not brand new, but i really thought it would be more than good enough to handle ableton, since i've tested a few other daw's on this system.
i have 8 gigs of ram.
Windows 7 pro 64bit(Ableton is 32bit)
intle Core i7 960 quad core. 3.20ghz
And a presonus firebox soundcard.
I have tried to do various adjustments with buffersize,sample rate and latency. I have also disabled alot of background processes to free resources, but it doesn't help at all. I adjusted the cpu's clock-speed to 50% (1,6ghz) to check how much worse it got, but abletons cpu-meter showed exactley the same cpu-load, and the cracks in the sound were exactley the same. Is it my hardware that is completeley outdated? Or is the problem maybe elseware?
