Re: getting aerodrums to work on my laptop

Can you give the exact text of the sound card initialisation error? Do any of the audio devices choices (on the Latency screen) work or do they all result in the error? If you're trying to use the Exclusive WASAPI device choice, did you make sure it is enabled and set to 44100Hz from within Windows ...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

I've sent you a private message with a link to a couple of programs to run. One program will stream frames from the camera without any graphics at all and report the FPS. The other program will stream and display the frames in a window but uses a minimal amount of graphics overhead compared to Aerod...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

I'm not sure what's going on here but I will talk to the other developers about it. Thanks for your offer to help - I might prepare a minimal test program for you that will use the camera but not create a window or use any graphics. This will help us determine if the problem is related solely to the...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

That's a pity. I was sure it was an NVIDIA power management issue because it would explain all the behaviour you showed in your video. Maybe you tried it but if you haven't, I think it's worth changing the Aerodrums.exe settings in NVIDIA control panel to use the other power options: "NVIDIA driver-...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

Sorry for the delay, I missed your reply and thanks for sharing this video. My suspicion is that this is related to the power management settings of your NVIDIA card. I believe it's dynamically changing clock speeds, etc. to reduce how much power it's consuming. This adaptation is based on how much ...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

Thanks for the in-depth description. I assume you have tried to run Aerodrums with nothing else running (DAW, Adobe, etc.) after a reboot and the frame rate still didn't hit 125? Just so you know, the performance issue isn't so much related to graphics - the USB camera needs to be able to stream fra...

Re: Recording Aerodrums in Ableton/EzDrummer2

Hmm...that's strange. From your video it looks like the problem is specific to recording - is that the case? In other words, is the behaviour as expected when you're playing Aerodrums and it's triggering EZdrummer2? (I was going to suggest removing Ableton and running the standalone version of EZdru...

Re: NVidia 2060 RTX Low framerate

Is it the case that the frame rate hovers round 60 FPS but never goes above it? If so, that's a telltale sign that Vertical Sync is the issue. I don't know if your laptop has an Intel integrated graphics card in addition to the Nvidia card but if it does are you sure that it's using the Nvidia card ...

Re: Aerodrums configuration with ableton 10

Ok great. This is only a problem on Windows. Just to explain what is happening - if Aerodrums is set to use the Exclusive WASAPI audio device (the recommended option) then it will try to take exclusive control over the audio device. If you subsequently run Ableton then it may fail to access the audi...
