    what are some other reasons other than buffer size do drop outs occur.

    I have drop outs when im pulling up a plug-in during playback in Sonar 3. I've adjusted the buffer size from 64 to 256, and it work for awhile. Then I moved it to like350 and I still get... im working with like 8 tracks and about 7 plugins. Its really not hindering me much, but I would like to get rid of it.

    I run sonar 3 and this is my comp

    E-machine T6520
    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3400+
    2.39GHz 1GB Ram

    and I send all my wave file to an 80 GB Western Digital Ext Hardrive (USB)

    The dropout occured before I sent all the sonar files to the Ext HD

    I also went Cakewalk and read the step by step guide on dropouts I also have my driver mode to (WDM)

    also tell me what you think about the e-machine I just picked it up and if some of you think I could have done better for the price then (((let me know ))I paid about 600 for it. I'll be upgrading in a year or so to a more enhanced PC anyway ( for the time being)

    To tell you the truth adding a plug in during playback will and can cause problems. It happens to me in Nuendo. It sort of stutters a little bit. The best solution is to add the plug in then press play.

    Do you get drop outs otherwise? If not don't worry about it!!!
