ASIO4ALL 2.12 installed but after button press to restore original settings,
opens a Podium error message window:
Could not initialize audio interface at 44100 Hz sample rate.
Have you realy read this topic?
it’s another hardware and it’s realy painful that podium multicore has this bad performance, because i have bought podium to use this feature.
i have used all naming DAWs and with none of them i had ever a multicore performance problem.
i don’t know why podium has this bad performance, but have podium realy multicore support for actual CPU, like Intel I7 4770?
No, it’s not working within Podium, because Podium has no MIDI routing support.
sometimes i have to refresh this forum site, to post a reply although i have already logged in before.
this performance problem occours every time in combination with onboard graphic card, after restart computer and start Podium with ASIO4ALL interface.
WORKAROUND after restart computer and start Podium:
– click on Driver Setup… opens ASIO4ALL v2.11 configuration window
– close ASIO4ALL v2.11 configuration window
– close Audio configuration window with <OK>
this is a ASIO4ALL initialisation problem in combination with onboard graphic card and should be fixed.
it seems it has to do with ASIO buffersize:
i have the best performance with ASIO buffersize = 256, but only if plugin multiprocessing is disabled – performance indicator is always below 50% and cpu speed up to 3,44 GHz.
but if plugin multiprocessing is enabled with ASIO buffersize = 256 – performance indicator is always over 50% and goes flashing red and cpu speed up only to 1,2 GHz.
perhaps the total buffersize is to large for all cores?
i always use ASIO default buffersize = 512 samples and it makes no difference using the maximum value with 2048 samples.
as i wrote in my second post this performance problem occours only in combination with the onboard graphic. it seems that podium uses onboard graphic memory which is part of RAM?
today i have tested again with enabled multiprocessing:
podium 3.2.4 (x64) project with one track TyrellN6 x64 – PV Influx Pad
playing on keyboard with MidiIn for TyrellN6 x64 – Performance Indicator goes to flashing red
i have also tested with REAPER v4.721 (x64) project with one track TyrellN6 x64 – PV Influx Pad
playing on keyboard with MidiIn for TyrellN6 x64 – Performance Indicator was always below 10%
Intel I7 4770, RAM 8 GB, Windows 8.1 x64
i found out, this performance problem occours only in combination with the onboard graphic.
today i have added a MSI HD5450 PCIe graphic card and now plugin multiprocessing works fine.
i have also rechecked with Studio One, but in this case the on board graphic has no effect to multithreading performace.
it’s real pity that Podium does not support streaming MIDI from one VST plugin to another, because that’s a standard feature in most todays DAWs.
try Wusik VM
works, but is not perfect.
after first start, all directories must configured correct to get wusik vm working.
1. Menu -> Load VST – to load your VST instrument plugin (with “e” on the right you can show/hide plugin window)
2. MIDI -> Load in Slot 1 Kirnu Cream (with “e” on the right you can show/hide plugin window for each slot)
limitation: after restart VST instrument load always 1st program
another solution could be MUX:
but i’ll also prefer a podium streaming MIDI implementation from one VST plugin to another.
