CPU low, dsp high

Postby veloopity » Mon Sep 04, 2017 10:09 am

UPDATE - the problem was due to a pending Windows update. Update finished, problem disappeared!


suddenly my setup has problems and often shows a dsp usage beyond 100%, with noises. I don't understand why. CPU usage is below 20% - isn't that related to dsp? what could be a reason that an old setup suddenly shows too much dsp usage?

i use a dedicated shitty lenovo thinkpad x131e running bidule with ipmidi to send wireless midi to and from my daw for a wireless midi controller and i recently updated it to win10 so that it could handle the teensy arduino LC driver without hanging on shutdown. still reading after that stupid sentence? i have noticed that this combo runs more unpredictably timing / latency wise when there's a win10 update downloaded/scheduled/whatever it does now. i have it set to restart itself every night if it's on, and it shuts down automatically if my DAW computer goes off, so as to mitigate this issue.

i resisted moving to win10 but now i think we must at least prepare for it
