    Should Hyperthread be enabled in BIOS?

    On a modern build, Hyper-Threading should be enabled.

    Should Hyperthread be enabled in BIOS?

    With off-the-shelf systems, the BIOS often doesn't expose all possible parameters. This is to keep less savvy users from fouling up their computers. The downside is that you don't have access to these parameters.
  3. I've raved about the Waves Scheps Omni Channel before... but just had to do so again. I've been working on some vocal tracks for a client's mix... where there are many plosives. Usually, I can isolate the plosive (as a separate clip) and use a High-Pass filter to remove it. In a few cases, the plosive is still objectionable (even after using a high-pass filter). I'd been using the Scheps Omni Channel's De-Esser a lot lately... to solve numerous issues (guitar string squeaks, standard de-essing, taming cymbals, etc). So... I figured I'd give the Omni Channel De-Esser (there's actually two of them) a shot at eliminating these problematic plosives. I set the frequency at 325Hz and engaged the first De-Esser. Problem solved. It was that easy. Ironically, I haven't been using the Sheps Omni Channel for standard mixing duty... but for specific problems it's been indispensable. The two "De-Essers" are capable of *far* more than standard de-essing. If you're dealing with similar issues, check it out.

    Getting Distorted Audio Output in SONAR

    FWIW, The issue is the chipset on the Firewire controller. Over the past 25-30 years, I've seen many similar cases... and in almost all... the Firewire controller wasn't using a TI chipset. With a desktop, the solution would be to swap the Firewire controller for one that has a Texas Instruments chipset. With a laptop, you live with what it is (can't be swapped out). The issue has nothing to do with the MOTU or Sonar.

    [SOLVED] Problems after July update

    Hi Pete, The latest Win10 install discs are version 1903. Installing on socket 1151/Z390 based machines (numerous different motherboards), with all available patches (thru Windows Update procedure), high DPC Latency persists. Installing from an older Win10 disc, there are no DPC Latency issues with v1803 or v1809. I've downloaded the KB4505903 fix from your link above... and will test to see if that resolves the issue. We appreciate your presence here on the forums!

    Hi Noel, I have not filed a feedback hub report. I'll do so ASAP.

    FWIW, Don't confuse DPC Latency with Audio Latency (two completely different things). You need low/consistent DPC Latency to effectively work at low audio latency settings.

    1/2-1 sec delay with Rapture

    All popular DAW applications feature Automatic Plugin Delay Compensation (Automatic PDC). If a latent plugin is inserted *anywhere* in a project, all other audio is delayed by that amount (to maintain sample-accurate sync). There are two ways to work around the issue: While tracking, avoid latent plugins CbB (Sonar) has a global Automatic PDC bypass feature (enable this while tracking) Latency has but two sources (unless the DAW application itself uses additional buffering): Audio Interface Latent Plugins Some DAW applications use extra buffering (which adds additional latency). Ableton Live uses additional buffering (which can't be disabled). Cubase has "ASIO Guard" (which can be disabled) StudioOne has "Dropout Protection" (allows setting the additional buffer size from 128-samples up to 2048-samples - the green Z button bypasses the extra buffer)

    Though not directly related to your issue, Win10 build 1903 has been problematic on many current build machines. High DPC Latency...

    [SOLVED] Can't Launch Cakewalk 2019.07

    If you have a Yamaha keyboard (Montage, ModX), it can function as both a MIDI controller and audio interface. Yamaha owns Steinberg... and users their audio interface/driver technology. When you load the drivers for your Yamaha keyboard, the "Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver is installed". FWIW, I've seen a similar issue when a Windows update was (first) released. In the short-term, had to roll-back to the previous Windows build (everything then worked fine). Long-term, the issue was resolved.
  11. Any meta-data embedded with the kick sample? Does it happen with any kick sample... or just a particular sample/library? If you're talking loops, they're being time stretched/compressed to match the current project's tempo.

    Sample Rate buffer size changing on the fly

    I'd try deleting the Aud.ini file (stores information about audio settings)... then re-open CbB and see if the issue persists.

    Getting Distorted Audio Output in SONAR

    If it were TI, it would mention it in Device Manager.

    Getting Distorted Audio Output in SONAR

    Yeah, it's most likely a Via or Ricoh chipset Firewire controller.

    Getting Distorted Audio Output in SONAR

    In the meantime, if you go to Preferences>Audio Driver>ASIO Panel... and change the ASIO buffer size (to another value and then back to what it was), this may clear the distortion without having to close CbB (Sonar).
