Audio dropouts every 20 seconds / Hammerfall

Postby ardberg » Sun Mar 08, 2009 6:21 am

I'm using forte 1.6 as well as 2.0 on a notebook with RME Hammerfall DSP soundcard (Windows XP).

The strage thing:
Every roundabout 20 seconds all level meters go to the highest peak for just some milliseconds. This even happens when I don't play.
The DSP latency checker doesn't report any problems. There seems to be something interfering with forte.

Any idea how to track the source of this interferance besides of trial and error (stop services, uninstall software)?
There is no JAVA-client on my notebook.

Thanks,
Ralph

Run Filemon from SysInternals.

Life would be much easier if I had the source code.

Hi,

I had a similar though different problem where I would have poping noise every 30 seconds. After running the DPC Latency checker (http://www.thesycon.de/eng/free_download.shtml), I was able to pinpoint a faulty driver on my laptop. It was the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery.

After disabling this device, the pops went away. I hope this tool can help you.

Regards.

Luc

He already ran it....but sure is a must-have tool for everyone involved in real-time processing.

You're right. I thought he was referring to another tool.
