Topic: Strange Behaviour when changing buffer size
I have a new HDSPe AIO Pro. I've noticed some unusual issues when chaning buffer sizes. This is independent of DAW - I use both Cubase & Ableton and it happens in either.
I regularly bump up the buffer size when getting into the last bits of mixing. So I might put it up to 1024. When I try to put it down though, the card basically stops outputting audio altogether. The system and DAW is still recognising and reporting it's using the card, but it does not output audio. If I put it back up to 1024 or higher it's fine. I've found that when this happens the lowest I can go is 512 for whatever reason. If I set to, say 64 samples, it sort of does this intermittent clicking sound. 128 or 256, no sound at all. Above that, sounds absolutely fine.
I should say here this is with a session playing back one audio track - it's not because of CPU overloads or maxing out the system or anything like that. The only way to "reset" this is to reboot. If I set it 128 samples and reboot, it will be fine at that buffer size that was previously problematic for that boot session. As long as I don't increase it again. Basically, whenever I increase the buffer size I cannot decrease it again until rebooting. This is obviously frustrating.
