    Hey Guys,

    I moved to Vixen 3 this year to see if I can speed up the programming side of things.
    Seems Vixen is so far so good.

    I do however have a small issue when watching what I just sequenced back in the preview screen. Playback audio will jump a little, some effects will start to play and then half way through will stop. This happens on numerous elements.
    It makes sequencing hard especially trying to work out if everything is timed correctly.

    As anyone else experienced this and if so how did you solve it?

    Cheers

    Find Me On:
    I have had problems on the preview when I have gone "overboard" on effects.
    This only happens on my laptop as it is not up to the task as I now have over 10000 channels.

    I just try to sequence as best I can and just get the idea from the preview.
    When I output it to the Pi it is all good.

    Cheers, however I found a tip which referred to stopping each controller in the patching section.
    Once I stopped them it made a big difference. It still does it just slightly but a lot better!!!

    Have you tired this yourself?

    This issue will be much better in the next major release. Currently there is a lot of core engine performance rework being done that will allow a much higher channel count without this issue.
