Topic: Vaio, i7 720qm Memory, 6GB, on board 1394a , FF800 Ableton Live 8
Hi, I recently bought a Sony Vaio F Series with the above specifications, Many of you might have bought recently something similar and you might want to compare the performance of your system in order to see if mainly the latency(buffer size) is improvable. The minimum workable buffer size with 48000Kz/24bit is 96 with latency 6.36 milliseconds. Bellow that buffer there are clicks and pops at even one track playback. Is this normal? What actually happens with lower buffer size is that the cpu cores ,as seen from the task manager, are picking instantly but periodically producing clicks and pops. Is it to optimistic to hope to record at the 48/24 and 42 buffers just one track? Will an external express card with TI chip improve the performance or its just a working or not working issue there? Will the better protocol of the 1394b improve anything? I would appreciate any comments on my systems performance as I have the impression that something might be wrong.
