I recently bought an MSI (a gaming computer, it was the most powerfull according to my budget) with an intel core i7-4700Q processor and 8 gb of RAM, (windows 8 64-bit). As audio interface, I have a rather old m-audio ozone keyboard.
Now the problem:
When I combinate guitar rig 5, massive, other vst and plugins and rewire, the CPU and RAM indicacors shows a very high amount of usage, in both FL studio and guitar rig. In cubase, the ASIO time usage peaks red. When this happens the sound crackles (of course!) and the computer sometimes starts to lag or even crashes.
When I open the controlpanel, the CPU and RAM shows 10% of max usage respective max 30%, when the softwares shows a very high amount of usage.
I don’t know what to do. When I spent this much money on a computer, I want it to be powerfull, not like the 5-yearold standard computer for 400 bucks I had before. Does anybody have any idea? Could the bit-rate be the problem? Is it my interface?
Thank you for replies, Rickie
