Glitches When Trying To Record

I’m having problems…

This clip was recorded using the Renoise sampler. Song settings were set to “No VST’s, No VSTi’s.” Latency was set to 10 ms.

I tried a variety of different latency settings but no matter what, I keep getting these glitches. The aforementioned link being one of the worst. In contrast, recording in Garage band works fine.


I think I may have narrowed the problem down to CPU throttling.

System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Options -> Processor Performance.

I changed “Automatic” to “Highest” and was getting more reasonable results. I will be doing more recording this afternoon. I will update this thread with my impressions of the situation.

If anyone else is having this problem, I’d love to hear from you.


Ha, that might be it. My GF was on her laptop while I was recording.

Anyway, problem didn’t happen this afternoon. So all is good for now, will keep my eyes open for the wifi.
