I'm about ready to buy computer and start over. Why? In a nut shell many years ago I bought an old Dell Computer with Windows XP pro. Upgraded ram, installed new hard-drive to handle all the wave files, etc. Computer isn't connected to internet. Stripped down so it's a dedicated computer running nothing but Cakewalk.
Recently started recording my jazz trio in my basement. 6 mics going in plus one midi instrument. It's using one soft Smyth - the piano that comes built-in with cakewalk. Not using any effects at all for recording.
I have to keep restarting my computer after every take. Otherwise the file quickly becomes corrupt and ruins the take we just did. Starts making a horrible noise.
Anyone have any solutions or do I need a new computer? Btw I've never updated any drivers. Felt this might make things worse.
