Ardour struggles, slowdown with digital soundeffect - ALSA, Gina24 from Echo, Fedora 17
Hi folks, ..
As described in the Subject, Operating system is a recent Fedora 17, Soundcard is Gina24 from Echo Audio.
Ardour 2 and Ardour 3 Beta 4, both behave the same. I'm importing a wave file, one track, all capacity free.
When Ardour starts to play, it may pay up to 10-20 seconds perfectly, maybe only 1, maybe 0, then it starts to slow down.
The time is like in a 2-3 faktor slowdown, and audi seems to repeat small portions of the audio file, like resampling, slowdown.
Then it suddenly runs okay for a period, and starts struggeling again, ...
.. no error messages of any kind.
VLC, and other applications seem to be using the card without problems. ..
What I was trying: Changeing sample rates, and buffer size, and such, ... no luck.
How can I troubleshoot this kind of problem? Ardour is GREAT! i would LOVE to use, especially ardour 3!
I'm experienced with linux and software development, I would help if I can ... just let me know.
