First of all, I’m totally new to Renoise. I just acquired 2.8.
I’m running Renoise on a 2009 Macbook, which has a 2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor and 1 GB of RAM
My goal is to first compose and record my songs in Renoise, including vocals and guitar tracks.
Later I want to perform live; controlling track effects with my Akai MPD32 and singing at the same time (lead vocal track muted, of course).
But I’m already running into a serious problem when I try to record my guitar.
My guitar is plugged into a Tascam US-122 mkII usb audio/midi interface.
When I start recording my guitar parts as a sample, latency and crackling increases drastically and within two minutes, my guitar sounds like it’s distorted by an old Gameboy.
Is there any way to prevent this? This way, I cannot even begin to use Renoise in the way I’d prefer.
I’m considering installing USB Audio Driver for Mac, but I’m just wondering if anyone with a similar setup has had this problem and of course, how it can be solved.
My next step might be to buy a new laptop with a Core i7 processor and lots of RAM and run Ubuntu, maybe things will be more stable (???)
