Falcon on Windows 10

Does anyone run Falcon on W10?

I'm experiencing major glitches with their IRCAM multi granular / complex algos with a single (1) wav file. ASIO real-time peaks and go bonkers.

Could anyone run a test for me?

Thank you!!! :)

I use W10 . As ED said, The IRCAM algos are CPU hogs.
How is Falcon working with big patches? If ii handles well, then it's only the IRCAM algos.

No, doubt it. There's a ton of variables on Windows... what's your power plan, is core parking enabled, is SpeedStep enabled... etc.

It's fully optimised. All those things have been covered.

Dunno. I play one voice of IRCAM Multi Granular with 8 grains and it's roughly up to 8% CPU and as low as 5.5% CPU (as reported by Task Manager) over here on my i7-6700K all core OC'd to 4.5 GHz... So yeah you don't really want to play chords with it.

But does it shoot the ASIO real time meter all the way up to red at 128 samples buffer?

Nah I'm pretty sure it's not the mobo at all. That's extremely rarely a factor in these things.

But for reference, it's AsRock Z170 Extreme 4.

I've no idea the cause of it.

My PC is perfectly tweaked for audio, yet the issue occurs regardless of which DAW I use - even in Standalone mode! Crazy right?

Unsure. You only mentioned you load one sample in, but this is far from the whole picture. How many multi granular voices, and do you play it polyphonically then? This is where the CPU usage starts multiplying.

just one granular voice and monophonic. ASIO peaks from the get go... so weird aye?

Yeh dunno... It may be that there was one Windows optimization too many that took things in the other direction...

@Phil81 you should probably contact UVI support.

Also, what audio interface are you using? Maybe it's an issue with the driver?
