I am very fresh to Renoise, just downloaded the demo version a copule of weeks ago. I like it so much so that I am considering buying the real one, but I have latency problems which might actually stop me using Renoise in the future. I tried to look for older topics, and I found very similar, but not exactly my problem / my hardware / etc, so please forgive me to start a new topic about it.
I am using Dell Inspiron 3721 notebook (i5 proc., 8GB RAM, SSD drive) with windows 7 (64)bit) installed. The applied sound hardwares:
- Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 soundcard, attached with USB2.0
- Novation X-Station as a midi keyboard (also this machine can be used as a soundcard) attached with USB2.0
My problem is that when I hit a key on Novation X-Station keyboard, the selected instrument starts playing with an annoyingly big latency, which kills everything, and makes impossible to create music. I don’t know how to measure the latency, but in my estimation it might be about 1/7 second. It is so big that I cannot believe that people make software like this, so I can think that I set up somenthing wrong. Please help!
My Renoise setup (I don’t know how can I include here screen snapshot, so:
Device type: direct sound
In Device: X-Station line in
Out device: Scarlett 6i6 line out
Sample rate: 44.100
Latency: 5 ms (some reason Renoise doesn’t allow set less than 5 ms… why???)
Use hardware buffers: yes
Multi core support:
In Device A: Scarlett 6i6 USB
IN Device B: XStation
Midi clock master:
out device: Xstation
Offset: 0 ms
Midi clock slave:
In device: none
Offset 0 ms
PLease help and please tell that it is only a setup isssue!
