I'm having some problems with East/West again. Recently I upgraded to a new computer, and here are the specs:
4 GB RAM
2.7 Ghz Dualcore
Windows 7 64-bit OS
and I'm using FL Studio 9, with East/West Symphonic Orchestra Silver.
Before, when I hit the play button and there are East/West instruments playing, it'd start playing immediately, but the notes would oddly cut off, and FL Studio would stick occasionally.
Now that I have even better specs, it's ironically even worse. Sure, it plays near-perfectly without any jamming or notes cutting off, but my problem is that when I press play, FL Studio briefly jams (usually for around 2-5 seconds) and then starts playing.
The more I work on a project, the longer it jams when I press play. FL Studio starts playing immediately when I haven't loaded any East/West instruments, but when I have, even if I don't make East/West play any notes in the piano roll, it still jams, so clearly East/West is the problem. My friend has the same problem too, and he's running on even better specs in Windows 7 32-bit.
It's weird, but the fact that the East/West plugin was loaded into FL Studio makes it jam for a few seconds when I press play, and even if I'm playing a simple pattern with a drum beat in it, it jams. In certain FLP's, it can take up to 5 seconds before the song starts playing when I click the play button.
It gets worse too. Even when I move the playlist slider for it to play a particular section of the song it takes 2-5 seconds of jamming before it moves. I can't even highlight a section in the playlist or piano roll, since when I try to double-click on the bar at the top of the playlist or piano roll to start dragging the mouse, it will register the first click I did, jam for a few seconds, and because it jammed for those amount of seconds, it won't register the second (sorry if that's a bad explanation, I suck at explaining).
This is really strange because after FL Studio briefly jamms when I press the play button, it plays perfectly afterwards. It's only when I move the playlist slider or click on the play button that it jams.
Whenever I have East/West Symphonic Orchestra Silver loaded into FL Studio and click on the play button or move the playlist/piano roll slider to a different section of the song, it jams for 2-5 seconds (depending on how CPU-hungry the project is).
