Bounce Selection very slow


Recently, using the “Bounce Selection” function has started taking an extremely long time and I’m at wit’s end trying to figure out why. Simply trying to Bounce a 45 minute long stereo file is taking upwards of 5 minutes. CPU usage is at 1-2% the whole time and physical memory is at 6%. These same files used to take seconds to bounce, so I’m not sure what has happened.

Did you change a Buffer Size?

I did change it a while back (in my RME Hammerfall control panel) to a larger setting, but once I started having these speed issues I dropped it back to where it had been previously thinking it could have been part of the problem. Even after changing back to initial setting it is still showing the problem.

Something I have found that might help diagnose…I decided to hook up a USB 3 external drive and when using that as the file destination, the bounces are much back to being seconds instead of minutes. Very interesting…
