I loaded DSL on an 850MHz computer with the intention of using it to record music tracks using the "Audacity" application.
The problem is:
While recording, Audacity stops listening for about 0.1 second every 45 seconds or so, causing gaps in the recording. That would be fine for talk, but I am trying to record music. I tried disabling the meter bar, the scroll, anything that would hog cpu time. I even tried lowering the sample rate and the bits.
The glitch seems to occur whenever it writes data to the harddrive. I looked in proc, and it shows HD on irq14, audio on 17.
I can record audio on a 233MHz win98 machine, so CPU speed shouldn't be the problem....?? DMA conflict? Crappy audio hardware?
I can supply DMESG if needed (fairly large file).
