Then you have the whole DPC latency nightmare for some people....
I haven't had a registry corruption ever in my 20+ years of using Windows...Main problem with the Registry, regardless of whether you actually open up RegEdit or not, is that many companies stuff all kinds of stuff in there and don't clean it up afterwards and if it gets corrupted in any way, you are pretty much SOL.
Of course, it's not really for regular users, it's for powerusers. Just like the terminal in *nix and macOS.Most people in fact SHOULD NOT ever open RegEdit and touch it.
Another option is backing up the registry regularly then replacing it if something goes awry.But if your registry gets messed up...and it can happen...then guess what your only real option is reinstall windows.
That's been my experience too; I don't think I've ever encountered a problem on a Mac that I couldn't recover from pretty easily.I have found OSX to be way way more resilient to those kinds of issues.
That's the thing - you have to know to do that. I wouldn't have had a clue, and - excuse me if this sounds arrogant, but if I don't know something then you can be sure that the vast majority of people using the computer don't.Another option is backing up the registry regularly then replacing it if something goes awry
Yo ED, can you give me an example of an Omnisphere patch or patches that will bring my machine to its knees?Harmonia is basically unison, multiplies the voices played and you can offset parameters between them. That was in the old one IIRC as well. It's basically stacking voices, so the whole voice is duplicated, and with it, CPU load as well.
That explains it.
Please read what I wrote. I said specifically that I never had registry corrupting itself on me in those 20 years. That there were other issues, sure. But W10 has been absolutely the lowest amount of issues for me out of all versions of Windows ever (I go back to W3.11 times). I think I had a total of 3 issues ever since I upgraded to W10 (and they're all resolved now) and they weren't dealbreakers. I had many more issues in W7.anyone who says they have never had a problem with windows in 20 years is lying...haha that's hilarious.
Yeah, I thought the reason for the long development was that they were waiting for the new chips.It's probably worth pointing out that there have long been rumors that Apple is preparing to dump Intel. While we're busy projecting what the new Mac Pro tells us about the future, it's possible that the answer is very little.
After all, the first cheese grater was a G5. The next was Intel inside.
I wouldn't say I hate it. I was a Windows user for decades before switching Mac.Whoa. I didn’t want to be a fire starter over here. My apologies?
I was just curious why some Apple users hate Windows SO MUCH since I kind of love it. My DAWs behave the exact same way on Windows as they do on Macs (which is all I really care) and the latency issues are practically the same on both rigs...so that’s why I was confused. I’ve even heard stories where clients would walk away from studios because windows was used lol. So that’s why my silly curiosity.
Considering your level of experience, mind for detail, and your technical abilities, I imagine you did a great job setting it up in the first place, Mario!That's interesting. I didn't think about my hardware ever since I put my machine together (about 3 years now). Everything "just works" (minus those 3 issues that I had - which were in order: iLok refusing to work at all, which was fixed somehow by Anniversary Update, then my webcam not initializing its driver correctly, which was fixed in Logitech's driver update, and actually, I can't remember the 3rd one, it may have been really something minor)!
I'm reasonably certain that we will be able to update the processor in the future, as long as it's supported by the Mac OS. So we'll have to see if they keep any Intel chips in future machines, because then we'd be able to use them.we don't know that they are doing to "dump" intel. We know they are thinking about making some devices with their own chips. The fact that they have committed to the Xeon's for the new MacPro i think indicates we don't need to worry about them dumping intel completely. Now, whether you'll be able to get a mini or iMac with intel in the future, yet to be seen...
