My new PC is up to date .Running Windows 10. i cant seem to record to my DAW whatever is playing in Windows media player. regular recording from line in is fine.. just some times i do get slow downs if i drag n drop into DAW. other solution that works for me is play in media player and record same time into DAW. but it's not working. old PC i had no problem. what might i try? . thanks all

Why would you want to record what you play in Windows Media Player? You can import mp3's and wave files into your DAW :) Or is that your problem, that you can't import sound files?

What is the ram allotment to your daw....
how many other programs are you running when trying to record(how about none)
how about latency setting are they optimized
when is the last time you rebooted your computer
ahh you use a lot of midi---is that optimized for playback with no latency


sorry I can't give you numbers on all the settings but that is MORE THAN likely your problem.

I'm with 🤡 --I mean eGil, on this, you should be able to DO every thing in a DAW


and I'm serious about the closing other programs off, like internet, like email --I'm sure Bill Gates has made that program suck up all your ram
BTW I THINK HE'D LIKE IF YOU ARE OVER 60 TO REALIZE you've had your time on earth

thanks for getting back to me. i'm not sure how to optimize for best performance. most of the time it works fine. i clean unnecessary files and defrag. i do have loops page open all the time. but thats it. i don't reboot every time i'm ready to drop a song into DAW. maybe i should?. i don't use midi at all don't know how. bottom of DAW tells me how much cpu i'm using and how much the the DAW is using, i check it and it shows 3 to 5 % never really goes too much higher than that. should it be using more?
