Possible Drivers Bug [BR: 0013377]

Postby CakeAlexS » Wed Oct 14, 2015 11:53 pm

Can anybody reproduce in Geist 1.1.3.4? Many thanks

STEPS

1 Start up Giest with a song.
2 Play the song.
3 Change the ASIO buffers say from 64 to 128 on your sound interface.
4 Engine won't work quite understandably no sound!
5 Press panic button, do anything. Even restart geist application!
6 Now try to play the song.
7 Nothing will work (not even restarting geist) until you put it back to 64 buffers.

Workaround is to quit geist. Then change the sampler rate to back to where it was before.
If you actually need to change ASIO buffers you must do it when application is not running otherwise you are in trouble.

There should be some way of resetting if an external factor comes into play. Otherwise we can get into a mess!

Can't reproduce this here at all, but these things are highly dependant on your sound card drivers. It definitely shouldn't do that. What version of Windows and what sound card are you using?

I'm using Windows 8.1 (Windows update fully up to date) and Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 (drivers and firmware fully up to date), and a Dell PC with i7 (firmware and chipset drivers up to date)... Cheers...

Geist is running standalone, no other applications are running,
I don't have this issue with other software.

Thanks...

We need to investigate this. I cannot reproduce with my MOTU 8Pre soundcard, but I've logged it with our developers. Bug report: 0013377.

OK behaviour has changed. The only thing that has changed at my end is the virus scanner has been replaced with another manufacturer. Weird though, there were no processes hanging around upon exiting Geist.

The steps to reproduce are still valid, however it will work once you close/reopen Geist after changing the ASIO buffers.

The question is, is it by design that.

1) Geist picks this up when using the audio panic button.
And/Or
2) Geist picks this up automatically (after a short period of time) like a lot of DAW's do.

I would certainly expect (1) to be by design (currently not happening), and (2) maybe a feature request.

Thanks..
