...Optimise use of an M-Audio Delta 1010LT?
I finally got my long awaited M-Audio Delta 1010LT, moved from a laptop to a full blown HP workstation, with a quad Intel processor and 6 GB of RAM... I got it all working now, but the system seems less stable, I can't seem to get the most of the 1010, and when I try, I get X-runs everywhere.
So far I can only run it at 512 frames/period and 2 periods/buffer. If I try anything below that I get Xruns all over the place. In fact, even with this setup (which seems a bit to conservative to me considering the hardware upgrade) it behaves really strange!... I get Xruns from nowhere, just as I am typing these lines, with no interaction with Ardour or Hydrogen, Jackd keeps getting Xruns every now and then.
In fact, when using this setup, which is brand new in all senses (new Ubuntu installation, new hardware, new Ardour 2.8, etc) I can still reproduce the same issue I got on my laptop, as Ardour crashes when scrolling left and right if running less than 512 frames/period.
Is there anything I have to do on Envy24 which may be causing this issue? Any way I can improve my setup to get rid of Xruns completely?... To be quite honest, I am very disappointed as I spent quite some money in this new setup hopping everything would be smooth, but so far it is almost as bad as my laptop setup with an onboard chip. ;-(
Any help appreciated.
