Subject:AcidPro7 recording problem

I can play soft synths and audio no worries but as soon as I start to record there is popping clicking etc. It is not a latency problem because I can play the soft synths fine- it is only when I hit record that the problems start. Same goes when recording audio. My edirol works fine on other daws at the same settings.

system info: vista 32bit, service pack 2, latest soundcard drivers etc. Windows sounds disabled, internal soundcard disabled

Can anybody offer any solution?

I believe I have solved the problem.

When I turn off waverform diagrams during recording the clicks, pops etc disappear. I have only tried it with audio so far.

My graphics card is a 7600gs geforce with the latest drivers.

Well- the audio recording is sorted.

But since no on/off option for midi data during recording exists, the clicking persists. My current workround is to resize a window from the bottom over the track lanes so they are obscured and only the transport can be seen: a frustrating procedure.

I was hoping the one other person in the world who this happened to was visiting this forum and would help me out...

Troubleshoot it a bit. It sounds like the problem is specific to that video card/driver, and if so, ask GEForce tech support for help.

But if you have access to/ability to change out and try a different video card. that would tell you if it is indeed the video card.

If it occurs on your computer with any other video card, well then, GEForce is off the hook, and you need to keep looking for the source of the problem

Thanks for the suggestions DocK.

Since I'll be upgrading my computer shortly I'll probably stick to my workround. It's not a big deal really as I mostly record audio.

Am very impressed with "Acid". Very nimble, and runs all my VSTs without complaint.

One thing I can't figure out is how to register the Izotope effects. I downloaded my purchase and I can't figure out where the Izotope serial number is, which is required to register the plugs at

Of course no AV running ?

Is your interface USB, Firewire or PCI. If PCI not sharing resources with graphics card ?

If USB no other USB devices on same hub ? USB2 ?

What CPU % being used?

Check HDD(s) operating in proper UMDA mode, and not PIO.

enabling loop mode means a rectangle is already drawn and midi recording without pops etc is possible. Not a perfect solution as it is difficult to create a long loop on an empty project for some reason. But better than nothing, none the less.

If I remember correctly, there were some complaints of the GeForce 7600's 2D acceleration not exactly being up to snuff compared to other cards in its class. This can, of course, cause problems as your system is trying to draw/update waveforms as fast as the video card allows.
