A very strange kind of dropout. Why?

Postby trivial105 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 9:39 am

Hello!

I have a little problem with Forte, but very annoying!

When Im' playing, sometimes (probably once every 3 hours), i hear this noise.
I thought that was a soundcard driver problem, but a test made with another soundcard gave the same result.

Suggest?

Thank you.

What does the diagnostic windows show? Does the dropout count bump up when this happens?

I'm sorry, but what's the "diagnostic windows"? I have Forte 2.1.126.2086...I can't find it :oops:

However...I can add that when I hear this "droput", the hard-disk led on the panel of my motebook (Toshiba Satellite A200) turns on for a second. (I don't use Sample-based VSTi)

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

OK, i found the diagnostic windows. I've not experienced the noise again in this days but, when i'm playng 2-3 hours, I can count almost 100-120 droputs (they happened on scene changes) in the windows without hearing anything! It's normal?

@Dirk Offringa. Thank you for the advice! My JQS is disabled but I've noticed thath the auto-update it's not. Indeed in the task manager i found the process jusched.exe and I've disabled it too (start->msconfig).

It's correct? I hope this can be the solution!

Dropouts during scene changes are typically the result of a plug reacting to the load of new plugin data with heavy or blocking activity such as loading samples.

Try to switch off "low HDD space notification". You need a registry hack to do that, or use TweakUI. You didn't mention your OS, so I can't give you a link but you can google it up. On Xp it is:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Name: NoLowDiskSpaceChecks
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

If the key doesn't exist, create it. As always, backup your registry first and don't touch anything in there if you're not fully confident in what you're doing.....
