    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    Dante isn't going to change this process, it still has to deliver data in order and on time.

    Digital audio was designed to work as a drop in replacement for analog audio and as such has to live in...

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    I'm just looking at dropped buffers in SAC or SAW Studio. This is what tells me if the system can process all the requested audio data in the time allocated based on the buffer setting. The lower the...

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    No, events. That isn't a thing. Audio data is just a stream of data. A mic input doesn't have any physical switches attached to it. I doesn't know that a connection has been made or not. The closest...

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    There really isn't any such thing as nothing here. All electronics have a noise floor, so there will be some small amount of activity happening unless there is circuitry to explicitly shut it off...

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    1. If your using SAC as the front end to SAW, then the recording process is a LOW cpu priority task. Meaning SAW studio is not the bottleneck. If your using 7200 RPM drives or SSD's your not going to...

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    Odd that its not supported, but you've at least confirmed that its not on. You'd want to shut it off anyway, so you can check that off the list.

    Sorry your having issues with the HDSP9652. RME...

    1. Why do you believe that the motherboard doesn't support hyper-threading? Is that stated somewhere in the docs? It should be a BIOS setting not a physical hardware limitation.

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    1. The extra buffers at the front of the settings 1/ 2/ 3/ will not make any difference for slipped buffers, its the 2nd half of that number that will matter /32 /64.

    Re: SAC SYSTEM BUILD QUESTIONS

    It will all depend on the particular chipset being used and how many PCI lanes are available. If I'm not mistaken the SATA buss still uses the PCI buss to move data, so your still moving data over...
  10. Re: SAW closes when going LIVE with Structure VST help please.

    yes, I know what the error message says, but that unfortunately is just a side affect of the plug-in crashing.

    All of the files listed are part of the crash reporting system and have nothing to do...
  11. Re: SAW closes when going LIVE with Structure VST help please.

    All of these files appear to be part of windows crash reporting system. They are not the source of the problem but rather a symptom of the application crashing.

    Yes, but that of coarse is the plight of all of us that have been using computers for more than a second or two and have the need to still access old archives.

    Again I'm not challenging your choice of tools, or even suggesting that one plate reverb for example is enough.

    I'm not second guessing your choices, I'm just trying to understand. You made it sound like you use 100's of plug-ins in a single project which you've just clearly stated is not the case (and you've...

    Re: New Vst plugins knock others out

    I'm always curious about how any project could end up using 100's of different plugins. (not talking about multiple instances of a few plugins).

    What exactly are those plugins doing that actually...

    Re: Mix file not saving plugin

    is the plugin saved/loaded in your default settings file?

    Meaning, is it there when you launch SAC even if you haven't specifically opened a mix file?

    Motu specs their Thunderbolt interface at .5ms faster than the USB interface and it can handle 64 channels of audio vs 32 for USB.

    I don't believe you will have any issues with USB.

    There are thunderbolt to PCI card cages, but they aren't cheap. I'm guessing it would actually be less expensive to build a new system than get the card cage.
