Hi, I just got my firebox and started playing around with it, the first track I recorded to a click track in cool edit, and it recorded fine. I then started to record a second track using my preamp into the line input as track two in the same session, and the click was waaay off; delayed in the headphones when I was recording- and the track was full of pops and clicks. Im wondering how exactly to get around the latency issue, because in the future I need to be able to monitor the previous tracks recorded in cooledit while hearing what the mic picks up in the headphones at the same time. But generally how much processor power is needed? Of course first Im going to try optimizing the system and see if that helps- I've been reinstalling windows to get a separate OS dedicated to DAW. Also- is it really that much better to record the tracks onto a separte hard drive from the system drive? The system I have now is an AMD XP 1.29 GHZ with 512 ddr ram (333mhz) and two 80gb 7200 hdd's (one with 8mb cache, thinking I'll use that one for recording the tracks). Should I be thinking about upgrading my system? As it looks now do you think it will be impossible to record 4 tracks simultaneously to track a drum kit with this system? Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
