Default glitches in media player when using "synchronous read mode"

I have found that synchronous disk reads allow me to push my quad core a lot more on tracks with many tracks of audio but when in synchronous mode auditioning audio (especially 32bit files) in the media player causes drop outs and "motorboat" style glitching.

anyone else have this or a solution?

hi music by numbers,

i too had severe crackling issues and glitching and your post inspired
me to switch default modes both synchronous first, which already solved
my crackling problem, after that i reset to defaults again and the issues were still gone, and everything works fine in asynchronous mode now !?

can you maybe try this also if you hadn't before, it worked for me...

Thanks for that I will try it, which mode buffered or none buffered and how many buffers if buffered? (tongue twister!)

So you now have no glitches in media player and tracks?

I only got these glitches at 64 sample buffer size with about 80 to 90 processor on a quad core and only when looping or sometimes on seeking around a track, switching to synchronous seemed to give me perfect playbacl but was confused why media player now glitched on one auditioning one track (although it was much worse on 32bit floaters

will try your suggestion, thanks!

... lol... "floaters"

Hi,
pretty much everything is set to defaults, if i remember correctly
i did check "optimize buffering for low latency hardware", but i'm not too
sure, all the other settings i didn't mess with...
i'm also using 64 samples (steinberg mr816x card), i also had those
horrible noise bursts and glitches in the media player, but even at very light cpu loads
just tried previewing a large number of samples in the media player, and everything seems fine...
Well, at least thanx for solving my problem already :-)
