So, if I understand correctly, and taking into account that I have been using Pd with the same equipment and the same interface, and the only thing that has changed is that I am now using Windows 10, I must think that where the conflict is in "Pd and windows 10"??
If so, I have a big problem because for other reasons I will not return to Windows 7 (although I really want to)
Another thing I want to comment on is that the BIOS is possibly misconfigured because the battery is running out (when turning on the PC the message "the Bios has been reset" appears and the clock time is also slipping)
Due to my ignorance, I don't know if this could be related to the problem, although as I already said, all the software I use doesn't have any problem...
I will continue to investigate even if I have less and less hope...
Thanks to all for the help!!
The problem keeps happening even with the dsp turned off. I have created an empty patch with about 50 "bang" buttons to test, I have dragged one of them with the mouse and it is a horror to see Pd in this way... I would not dare to say that it is unusable, but it is close. ..
I will continue to investigate the ASIO driver issue further as you have suggested.
Thanks for your help.
Hello, first of all I want to say that I have been using Pd for 6 years on a PC i5 (fourth generation) 16gb ram and Windows 7 ultimate. Pd and other DAWs I have have always worked without any stability problems. A year ago I upgraded to Windows 10 home (I have always optimized Windows following the indications offered by Merging Technologies and some professional DAWS) Today all the software related to audio works perfectly and without any problem except PS that drives me crazy.
Just create a new patch with 2-3 tables and 2-3 signal objects to start the instability in Pd.
The first symptom that appears is the "feeling" of "overloaded". For example, when dragging an object with the mouse, the object is delayed with respect to the mouse pointer (the more the object patch is loaded, the more noticeable the delay is)
If I save the content of a table of only 8820 samples for example (200ms) with [soundfiler], it can take between 2 and 3 seconds to wait until the message appears in the console
It has also happened to me (although on fewer occasions) that when I press a bang button, the button remains pressed in black and Pd blocked (although I am not aware that this problem is directly related to the other comments).
I want to make it clear that I have not had any problems related to the audio, it is with the GUI that makes me think that something is not right. The first of the problems that I have named is the one that I consider serious for me, because it prevents me from working at ease and in the end I end up not going ahead with any patch. This happens to me in version 0.53.0 that I have now and in the previous 4 versions. I have used the same patches on a laptop that I have and everything works normally. I can't get to understand what is really happening and what the blissful problem may be related to, I have asked several Pd users on telegram and they have not been able to help me either...
Any ideas that occur to you will be welcome. Thank you!
It is not easy for me to explain why I need maximum precision, either because of the complexity that would be explained to me and because my English is not entirely good. Although if I can try to explain a simple example (although it is far from the real purpose)
Suppose I have 2 audio samples. The first sample lasts exactly 1000ms (44100 samples) and I loop it every 1000ms.
If I had another exactly 125ms sample and looped it back at its exact time (125ms) alongside the first 1000ms sample, the beat would be perfectly in sync since it's the exact eighth part of 1000.
On the other hand, if I can only get a sample of 5512 samples (124.988..ms) and I loop it along with the 1000ms sample, as time progresses and the 124.988 sample is repeated more times ... ms, the desynchronization of time will increase ... (rhythm)
I know you can tell me that I can solve the "desynchronization" by repeating the sample every exact 125ms, but I have already said that this is just a simple example to try to explain and does not address the real problem.
As I have understood from your explanations, that sometimes it will be impossible for me to record samples to the exact duration that you want, but I can reproduce them within Pd exactly with the desired duration using the examples that you have given me. What invites me to think about the idea of not using any other means than Pd to get closer to my purpose, even if it takes more time and effort at first; But it is what I will do ..
