Hit F12 before playing to hide everything btw. That eliminates almost all screen drawing.
I usually take away all of the toolbars except the transport panel and hide the playlist, mixer, browser and step sequencer anyway when I play a song, to reduce the amount of lagg.
Reverbs CAN be intense, particularly on the master with a lot of sub-mixes. Putting one on the send channel can be very useful.
Yeah, I've started doing that now, but the song I'm using to check if any of the suggestions ITT are working was made a few weeks ago, and at the time I didn't use the send channel. Or rather I didn't feel like using it :3.
Edison on the "current channel" saves having it always listening if you select an empty channel.
Wow that's a good idea, thanks :D. Although I only use the Edison when I'm trying to remix a song so that I can figure out its notes. I just slave Edison's playback to FL and start figuring out the notes via the piano roll, so most of the time the I don't have the Edison in the master channel.
Tools>Macros>Switch Smart Disable.
Wow, this actually helped a lot. It still laggs occasionally when I play chords on the keyboard or when I press play, but it's helping a lot. Thanks a LOT!
I'm still going to try and find out how to remove the problem completely though :P.
I don't know any more than the ad i saw, but if it prefers 64bit but will deal with 32, it's probably rather intensive. I might look for an alternative. Fruity offers a good array of orchestral samples for free and a lot more for a nominal fee... if you have a legit copy... which plug perfectly into directwave.
It is quite intensive, although my system specs meet its requirements. I'm required to have 2 GB of RAM (actually my friend ran it on 1 GB and it still worked OK) and 2.6 Ghz clock speed if I remember correctly, but I have 3.25 GB of RAM and 3.17 Ghz clock speed, especially since my version of East/West is the least complex. Also, don't forget that East/West was working fine for me a few months ago. Furthermore, nothing orchestral from Image-Line can compare to East/West :P.
I would imagine there are as many pros as cons, but I've had the same XP for 8 years. I don't even have a multi-core. You should have every advantage over me and I run intensive plugins at 10ms latency.
I don't have a multi-core either, and the thing is, my XP hasn't been updated for a whole 7-8 years. I'd imagine you run Windows Updates. I can't since when I bought XP, I got ripped off and got a non-legitimate copy which won't update for me.
Do you play a lot with mixer routing? Check the mixer's settings in the top left.
I only use mixer routing for Vocoder and maybe a few rare instances, so I don't really that much.
We'll get through this.
Thanks a lot for all the help :).
