Hi people, I am have problem that I really need to fix. I am using Cockos Reaper, and an Alesis i/o 26 firewire interface. Just recently, Reaper has started to completely slow down and freeze after I put in maybe 4 tracks with some heavy VST plug-ins. This is a big problem because I need a lot of plug-ins. I can't even open saved projects that would work fine just weeks ago, it just slows down and/or freezes. It's even worse if I switch the device to ASIO (which is what I use to record and monitor with, through the Alesis). It seems like there's just too much CPU usage or something after a certain point (a point which has somehow been lowered recently). I have a Pentium dual-core processor, and 5 gigs of RAM (it can only show or use 3.25 of it, apparently) so obviously with that much RAM it should be running beautifully, right? Perhaps not, though. Anyhow, I need to find some way to give Reaper more CPU usage, or maybe something totally different, I really don't know what. Can any computer geniuses give me a hand here? Please! Thank you dearly in advance!
