Discussion of music production, audio, equipment and any related topics, either with or without Ableton Live
Neat tool...I've never used that before.stutter wrote:Would you mind running DPC latency checker so we can see if the mobo runs without anything dodgy happening?
Seems to check out fine. Image was taken during playback of a large project in Ableton, if that matters at all. The high absolute maximum came when I opened the first project right at the same time I got a message about a plugin not loading (because I hadn't installed it yet). I was not able to duplicate that issue.
Those PCI slots are begging for the RME...come on freddy, 0.7ms of latency...you know you want it...ethios4 wrote:Thanks! I'm using Presonus Firebox. It's treated me well for about 4 years now...no problems.loquat wrote:Nice looking system.
BTW what is your audio interface?

The DPC latency results are good, should be a reliable low-latency mobo. Spikes like the one you describe are not to be worried about, it's the recurring or unexplainable ones you'd need to fix.
Funny thing is I've been a Mac guy since I bought my first comp ten years ago.v00d00ppl wrote:once you go i7, you can't go mac....yea i said it!
It was'nt too hard to do the math:
1. Impressed with a friends Windows 7 AND OSX86 build
2. Build cost me under $1k: Comparable Mac Pro would have easily cost me three times the price.
3. This machine will be dedicated to Live, nothing else. RME's HDSPe drivers already support Windows 7
I was a MS Hater but over time I just said WTF: I'm giving it a go.
