Uber newbing with N-Track!

    I'm running N-track to kind of get a feel for the whole recording vibe. The biggest problem I have run into is an uneven metronome. This isn't a pride thing where I think I keep better time than a metronome. I dont think it is a resource problem I'm running an AMD64 3000+ with 512 RAM. Of course I'm using the utmost in audio technology with my onbord sound but still I just want the damn metronome to work. I have tryed playing with the buffers (not really sure what buffers do exactly, but there were presets for high and low buffering so I used those) closing all running programs, nothing seems to work. Here is what happens in 4/4 (it happens in all time signatures) it will hit 1, 2, and 3 pretty solid but 4 it seems to drag ass and when it gets back to 1 of the next measure it has to play catch up so there is a significant and noticable skip in tempo. It is probably loosing tempo the whole measure it just becomes and explosion of unevenness between 4 and 1 of the next measure. Here is my question, has anyone run into this, and if so do you have any ideas on how to fix it?

    any help would be appreciated

    Umm..I hope that's sarcasm?! Onboard sound cards are NOT the utmost in sound technology...

    Usually onboard sound cards will cause these problems due to their lack of proper drivers and ability to handle the information properly from the host application.

    By yourself a cheap M-Audio or something and then try it...bet that would help.

    Opus :D
