: I goofed on my original E-Mail address so here's the question again: I'm recording multiple midi tracks on a Compaq PC with a 533mhz chip and 64k ram. Using Micrologic AV software included with my Alesis QS6.1. During playback of songs with several tracks, it seems as if there is a delay or skipping of some sort. Can anyone tell me how to correct this? Is it the chip, do I need more ram, or can I adjust some settings? Thanks
: Well from my experiences RAM is always the big player in audio. Everything really comes into play though. Software, Soundcard, Configuration,
Hardware, etc. Usually the audio skipping can be associated with RAM.
"rough recommendation reguading RAM vs. 44.1kHz"
1-3 tracks = 48 mb
4-6 tracks = 64 mb
7-12 tracks = 64-96 mb
and so on.....
24-96 tracks = 192+ mb
