IBM Thinkpad 600X (P3, 550MHz), 256 meg memory
Sound card: Echo Indigo IO PCMCIA card
Audacity 1.0 (I know -- I hadn't upgraded the laptop before I needed to use it)
I was recording a live session a while back, plugged into the 2-track
output from the sound board. Things seemed to go smoothly, but during
playback I noticed what appeared to missing buffers -- the recording
continues smoothly, but there's a chunk of audio missing. You can't tell
except that there's a jump in the vocals.
There wasn't any other major application running on the laptop during the
recording session. I checked to make sure that the system was as optimized
as possible (DMA for the drive, etc). Of course, that doesn't mean that
something didn't take time away from the Audacity process long enough to
result in a missed buffer.
Any ideas? Does the record process run at a higher-than-normal priority, in
order to avoid system contention issues? Would it make sense to boost the
priority of the program (either manually, or in the program itself)?
