Hey guys whassup, please assist me with this trouble that I am having, thanks.
Okay, I just bought a new Toshiba laptop with 1024 RAM and 120 GB Hard Drive-Windows Vista
My old Gateway Laptop had 256 RAM and 40 GB Hard Drive-Windows XP
When running FL Studio 7 on the old one I only got a few underruns in audio and the buffer was set to the default 2048, and only sometimes my playback would stutter, but when making beats I could use many Vsts and generators.
Now, on this new laptop I get all types of crazy stuttering and crackling when I open multiple Vsts with the default audio settings, now I'm wondering, is it the soundcard? because the Gateway's soundcard actually did sound really better (5.1 surround I think) and the new Toshiba's sounds like and old radio.
I've tried all of the Vista tweaks for high performance, but I still get the bad audio buffering problem.
What I'm asking you guys is, instead of using the Toshiba's soundcard, would getting the M-Audio Fast Track Usb
Interface help? In other words, just setting the FL output to the M-Audio Interface instead of my soundcard and essentially using the M-Audio as a soundcard?
BASICALLY, IS IT MY SOUNDCARD OR IS IT THAT MY COMPUTER CAN'T HANDLE EVERYTHING?? SHOULD I INSTALL XP ON MY NEW TOSHIBA TO MAKE IT HOW MY GATEWAY WAS?? THANKS GUYS.
