choppy playback


I have downloaded the trial version (21 days or 40 starts) everything works really well except for the fact that I get choppy playback at certain times. It runs well for 5 mins then a song goes choppy for like 20 seconds before it comes good again. Is this a limitation of the trial version?

Any help would be great

Hello mikey,

this is definitively not a limitation of the trial. It should work out of the box. Could you please tell us more about your system? Operating system and so on?

thank you

for sure

my system is Windows XP service pack 2
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.4 GHz with 2 gb of Ram
400 GB Hard Drive
Realtek onboard sound card with directX 9.0c audio codec is ALC888
video card Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT

the choppy playback is not limited to a certain song… ie if i stop ultramixer from playing the song then start that same song again in like 20 seconds the song is fine and it only seems to be doing it about every 5 or 6 minutes

Hello mikey,

wow that sounds pretty weird. Actually, we don’t have any delay-lines or buffer lines that are 5 or 6 minutes long. The longest amplitude I can imagine is approx. 1 minute. And this might only happen if you tuned all buffer sizes in the settings dialog to maximum. To ensure your drivers are working properly, I’d like you to make a further test. Could you please install the ASIO4All driver:
These drivers are virtual ASIO drivers for all WDM compatible sound cards as well for your Realtek one. Then switch to ASIO-Mode in UltraMixer, if it’s not done automatically. After that’ please hear if it still comes to some choppy sounds.

Thank you
