So, for years before this, I've had no real problems recording multi-track (32 tracks) of 16 or 24 bit/48k audio using DVS on my Lenovo ThinkPad from RIOs
This year, I cannot get a clean recording. I know there's been Dante and Firmware updates between this year and last, but I don't know if they are the cause.
I thought maybe something had happened to my computer (a piece of software or driver update) that had caused me to not be able to cleanly record DVS multitracks, so I did a clean install of Win10 on the computer. No dice, same issue. Wiped that partition and did a clean install of Win7. (The computer's a few years old and Win7 has always worked best on this computer) Tried another recording, still having issues.
I get random skips and glitches in the recordings. In the past, I would have chalked that up to too slow a hard drive, but this machine (even when it had spinners) has never had an issue. It now has SSDs all around, so that can't be an issue. I've always had the ASIO and DVS settings at maximum latency and buffer sizes and my computer still has the same RAM it always had - 8gb, so I'm at a loss as to what is causing the problems.
It's skipping and glitching. I see no clocking errors in DC, the only warnings are Fanout detections, but I've always had those, and I'm still well under the max flows limitation.
The RIOs are on firmware 3.11 which I know is not the latest, but has been fine for the past years.
DVS is 18.104.22.168
Computer is a Lenovo ThinkPad W520 with 8gb ram, 3 Samsung 500gb EVO 850 SSDs (1 mSATA, 2 SATA), running Win 7 with all updates.
I need some help to figure out how to troubleshoot this issue. I'm pretty sure it's my computer as another person has been able to record clean multi-tracks on this system using the same version of DVS.
Thanks for any and all help!
