Anybody using an i3 cpu,

I am getting a distorted distant sound from my daw, I have changed my soundcard settings but still the same I am using sonar/mixcraft.

both are doing this after I add more than three wav tracks.

I am awaiting delivery of some more memory will this cure the problem or will it be the cpu.

I have bought an imac to downsize my setup.

The imac is loaded with windows 10 no other operating system.

The CPU almost certainly is not a problem. So also the RAM, although my i5 iMac had beach balls after updating to High Sierra until I added 4 GB RAM to make it 8.

Still, I doubt that causes any sound problem.

Can you record the sound and post a snippet of it here?

My first guess is audio buffers. We need to know about your sound card. Can you increase the buffer size if it’s ASIO? Or decrease it?

I have other guesses, but I’ll wait until you give more information.

Matt I cant record it as the program whites out .

It is an imac although I have windows installed.

Changing buffer up/down makes the program white screen and it then closes.

soundcard is the alesis multimix usb 2.0 fx.

If I record my voice no music/wave files about four fx on the voice it is fine.

As soon as I add a few wave tracks it crackles like a radio station slightly out of tune.

No Matt it was a firmware update for the Alesis Multimix.

That tried me too the limit.

Thanks for your help,
