Am new to Max. Am on Windows 7 x64 running the x86 version of Max 6.
When in Max working with a patch with audio I experience choppy/clicks audio when:
– scrolling around patch
– alt-clicking an object to bring up help
– if I open Max Help (actually this completely freezes Max while it opens and it’s very slow to open)
I’ve got default Audio Status settings in place. Using ad_directsound for driver. Have a RealTek HD onboard.
Absolutely never have had audio issues in Live 8.
Can someone help me?
Yeah, I read through that one yesterday before I posted this.
Do you recommend I try ASIO4ALL? That’s the only thing I have not done yet.
Thank you very much for your reply.
yes, that is indeed the implication of my reply.
I went ahead and installed ASIO4ALL. Seemed to help substantially.
I’m still not 100% satisfied though. I am looking at replacing my sound card.
That delay in Max Help opening up still kills my patch though, and opening object help windows with an Alt-click. Not sure if this is a Max thing or my audio card just sucking.
dtr, thanks for your help!
I enabled "Overdrive" in the Options menu.
I can now move between windows, scroll patches, open Help and Alt-Click objects without any audio issues at all.
For those interested, I’ve attached a shot of my audio settings.
Just a barebones Realtek HD Audio onboard chip with latest drivers installed. No ASIO4ALL.
