Thank you 4 your replay’s !
I’m using a HP 5101 netbook
Processor: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280
Memory: 2GB RAM (kingston)
Storage: 7800 rpm 160GB hard drive
Optical Drive: None
Screen: 10.1 inches (1,024x600)
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 950
Weight: 2.6 pounds
Dimensions (HWD): 0.9x10.3x7.1 inches
Operating System: Windows XP OEM HOME
The HP 5101 is as far I can see full reconfigured by me and a computernerd friend of mine.
All bull-ishh is erased or set to not active, like automatic updates,background services etc etc.
I manage to create full songs in reaper on it ( sometimes rendering vsti’s ofcourse)
and play Mixvibes 7 dvs with vinyls with it. I do have internet on it, in case I need something
from the net.
My W7 vaio is very nice, but there is no question which Pc I would prefer between those 2.
I will keep using the W7 vaio for final mixing, but it is a heavy device and not friendly to type
on it compared to the HP.
Posting a renoise file will not add I think anything to my question about how to get more out of renoise.
I’m just suprised about the amount renoise takes from the CPU compared to reaper.
Take TS-Substance or Oatmeal Vsti’s , play the same melody in renoise and in reaper and
you will see a good difference in how these program’s handle those vsti’s CPU wise.
Also rendering to file/sample is just annoying in renoise since everything is rendered -6 db.
But indeed , I have set the frame rate to 05 and audio to 185 ms latency,the same amount reaper is set to.
I have noticed a boost.
When I opened renoise before the cpu was already 1.2%, now it is 0.5. Have to try it out how it works in full
effect to see if it is more workable now.
Could there not be a possibility to write a script to get the -6 db rendering bypassed so everything would be rendered at the same volume as original is played trough the mixer?
I don’t care about battery life ( described in a lot of netbook reviews)
The question is , do I get a performance boost using W7 ultimate on the HP?
File transfering is quicker on the hp than the vaio too for example.How would that work for the cpu.
I have tried Asio4all on the hp. The cpu raised 10 procent and renoise started to stutter gui and soundwise?
