Audio Engine Dropout (1), Wasapi Shared, Tweak Buffer Size?

Recommended Posts

I get an occasional engine dropout, usually when I'm fiddling with instrument vsts.

Code (1)       Audio processing took longer than the buffers allotted time slice.  Increase the Buffer Size value in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Driver Settings.

Probably because I'm running Wasapi Shared the area within Audio Driver Settings Buffer Size is greyed out.

Can I increase the buffer size somewhere within the config file?  And if so, what would I tweak.

Thanks

I'm running Win10 on i7 and ssd.  And I'm running Realtek HD internal card.  (This is a hobby, not a career, so I'm keeping it simple.)

From what I've read Wasapi Shared is pretty solid these days.  And 10 years ago, last time I was in midi, ASIO caused me some headaches.

The dropouts don't happen during play or record, so no big hassle.  Just thought I'd try to tweak them away ...

Thanks for that info.

 

I just spent a long afternoon working with a lot of vsts, and not one dropout, so it is pretty random. 

 

So I guess no big deal.
