I have a strange behavior with my gig.
I play different Rackspaces without any problems,
but one has cracks and noises. I thought, OK, the used pluginns are causing problems and/ or CPU comes to its edge. BUT, the CPU is at 25% and the notebook is far from its limit.
Other Rackspaces are working without any issues, until another one, which before worked without any trouble before, startet with the same problems.
Than, switching back to the first one which caused this problems, is running without any issues anymore.
What can that be??
It’s running on a Windows Laptop which is stripped for just running GP.
It started with „In the air tonight“; with heavy interruptions.
After we playing some other songs/ Rackspaces it suddenly was at „Hotel California“, with totally different plugins and CPU and rest of PC capacity was playing in the kindergarden…
Right switching back to „In the air tonight“ and this Song/ Rackspace was clean.
Going back to „Hotel…“ is was bad.
With same setting it was working before without any issues…
OK - I’m not sure you’re answering my question — you describe a sequence of songs where switching to Hotel was very bad — but was that specific always very bad? I.e, did you do that switching before, to those particular songs ever, and it worked?
may my English is not good enough, but I guess what you ask me I already tried to express in my opening post.
It is NOT everytime at the same Rackspace and the Rackspace worked before, and suddenly not anymore.
Usually I would agree, but Windows is stripped down
too do absolutely nothing up to 03:00 am including checking any updates etc.
No other Rackspace is harmed at this time, just one.
After a while it jumped from on Rackspace to another
and the one which was not working is working again.
If it used to work properly and then stopped working properly, it cannot directly be a GP internal issue - there is no magic, GP by itself will not behave one way one day and then behave completely differently on another day if nothing else has changed. No software changes like that - something else had to have changed, even if it is not obvious.
Now it certainly could be that something else that changed exposed an issue that could be impacting GP but that still requires figuring out what actually changed externally.
Interestingly I have been experiencing a very similar issue since today. In my case it’s essentially a sudden change in performance. GP shows a very high CPU load while my system monitors all show a very low load. And one side effect are crackling noises when I change the rackspace.
Windows update I have completely blocked, this can not be the case in my system (I hope…)
I exchanged one plugin for another one, since that I haven’t the issue anymore, yet; but I have too prove it testing the second Rackspace at which I had the cracks as well.
As usual, I will update as soon it’s done.
I have issues with Windows updating as well. I can not turn off update because I only have Windows 10 home, not Windows Pro, which will allow you to turn off updates. Love to thank the guy at Microsoft, that only a PRO using a Windows Pro software should have the ability to turn off updates… great marketing.
As I understand it, this utility works for all editions of Windows:
" A handy utility for managing the automatic updates specific to Windows 10*
While you can argue that you can achieve the same results by disabling some services and setting a group policy, this is not always enough to prevent the updates. Besides, let’s not forget that accessing the Group Policy Editor is not possible for Windows 10 Home for instance.
All in all, Wu10Man is a handy application that allows you to access and make the necessary modifications to the group policy and disabling the services that activate automatically whenever an update is released for Windows 10."
