Topic: White noise on Global Record playback
I'm trying to get Global Record stable on an old system in order to use it to multi-track live performances.
I'm using an HDSP9652 PCI card with 1.08 firmware, driver version 188.8.131.52, and Digi Check 5.34.
The system is an old P4 single processor (2.4 Ghz) XP machine with a Shuttle SB51G mobo, 1GB ram. Yep, ancient, but the system's only going to be tracking, not mixing nor overdubbing, so it should be up to the task.
Here's the issue: global record (recording to a dedicated audio drive or the system drive, same result) appears to be tracking OK, but isn't. On playback (8 tracks @ 44.1 kHz) of files over about 10 seconds, all 8 channels begin to output 0 dBfs white noise bursts. I had also issues with DC 4.53 and driver 2.94 (6) where the recording would stutter as if it were fast-forwarding, in spite of playback being at the correct speed/ pitch.
And the weird thing: recording the same 8 channels at 44.1 kHz in Reaper works perfectly.
Any thoughts of how to fix this?
