I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1501 PC, with 1 gig of ram, not sure on the processor, pretty measly though, and i have a use and external hard drive 500gigs. I use a Lexicon Omega interface and Cubase LE4, I'm wondering if my system specs are okay for recording on my laptop.
I set up my inputs to the channels comin off of the Lexicon, and my outputs to my headphone out on my laptop, when i record, it records a little late, which i can always fix, but what really drives me crazy is while recording, even if i'm not listenin to play back, it cuts out, it stops for a second basically, sometimes more that 15 times durin a 4 minutes recording. This even happen on the first track on a project, this is why i don't think it has anything to do with playback. I usually start with drums, and sometimes i just have to give up for the day, because it keeps happening, is this a buffering/latency problem? if so how do i fix it? or should i upgrade my ram?
