Gapping problem? Uh....latency issue maybe? What kinda soundcard? If you are using motherboard soundcard, that is likely your problem. You'll need a recording soundcard to get latency down to a minimum.

Not using motherboard soundcard. I'm using Soundblaster Live. Any other ideas?

Yeah...get rid of the Soundblaster...

Once again...you will need a soundcard meant for audio recording...Soundblasters can record but it should be kept to such things as letting the kids record their voices to hear themselves for fun....


Check out these manufacturers:

M-Audio, E-MU, Echo...

Happy recording :)

Not sure what you mean by gapping. Can you explain what is happening?

Gapping is like hearing a record/CD skipping during playback or when trying to record vocal tracks or guitar solos. Timing becomes erratic and skips. It's as if the cpu is straining to keep up with all the tracks playing. Typically don't run more than 10-12 tracks at a time. It generally occurs when guitar solos are playing. If I were to leave out or mute guitar solos, there is no gapping. Maybe it has something to do with the frequencies of guitar sounds. Gapping doesn't occur during guitar rhythm tracks or any other instrument. When I bring up task manager, cpu is peaking at 90-100%, ram is not affected.

Would the sound blaster card cause the cpu to peak like that? I will check out those sound cards you recommended. Thanks for all your help.

I just checked out the E-mu 0404 PCI card. Its specs are far superior to what the Soundblaster can do. I'll give it a try and let you guys know what happens. Any other input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

No problem! Good Luck....

But just a little side note...soundblasters are meant for basic gaming and movies, therefore any of those makers would be far superior to a soundblaster when it comes to recording ...

Soundblasters cannot do what recording cards can do, bar none! :)
