My patches tend not to be gigantic, but the one performance issue I experience regularly is what I call audio hiccups where the audio through the monitors periodically stops for a fraction of a second. It’s quite jarring, but interestingly, if I have recorded a segment that included these hiccups, the audio dropouts are not recorded—the sound is continuous—but the effect of the dropout can be heard, e.g. the repeating pattern of a delay changes at that point.
Anyway, I am on on older i7 running the latest Windows 10, but I am using the CPU’s integrated HD4000 graphics. If I were to install a separate graphics card, would that possibly improve my situation? My options are a little limited because I would need a low-profile card to fit in the case. Also, I am not thrilled with spending more that $50-60 for a card for this older computer.
Would something as meager as this be worth the effort?
