: 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
I have a 486dx66 with 16Mb ram, and it handles quite a few tracks of midi with no trouble. At least 15-20(certainly it depends on thier complexity). You should get a look at Power Tracks Pro Audio Sequencer software(only $30 US), from PG music at www.pgmusic.com. I think they have a downloadable demo. Don't let the price fool you, this is an excellent sequencer, and for only $30. PowerTracks also records audio, and has rendered effects and sound editing. I will admit, that my 486 does not handle wav data very well, but midi is no problem.
