I’m sorry to say that removing “Real-time priority” menu item in V2 as a part of the restructured engine doesn’t go well with my computer.
So I reverted back to doing the old trick of modifying the “Target” in my shortcut and set Rack.exe in a High priority mode (shown below):
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start “” /High “C:\Program Files\VCV\Rack2\Rack.exe”
Doing this, for me, removes the audio glitches (1) considerably, as in “day and night”.
I wish the real-time option would have stayed, so I don’t have to modify my shortcut’s target and change the icon with every VCV Rack2 updates, but it’s not that big of a deal to manually change it either.
Maybe this “hack” can also help others, unless or until there is a better option.
My old system specs:
OS: Win 10
Processor: i7 4770 3.40GHz
Graphic: Asus Strix ROG Radeon RX470 4G
Audio Interface: Roland UA-101
(1) - I’m not talking about the “block size” setting, and yes I’ve experimented with this too.
P.S. If there is a better way instead of modifying the shortcut, please let me know.
