Why is there no manual to reference to ? Even a fully online one would be fine.
The best I could find is https://help.positivegrid.com/hc/en-us/sections/200558975-Product-Information and it is not even fully synched with my (latest) version of Bias Amp 2 !?!
Furthermore it is nearly impossible to find it from the site, the software presentation page or the "help center" search engine as the clue words send to the useless FAQ. There should be at least a direct link from the software's help to this, don't you think ?
And maybe it should be updated a little more often, like when there's a software update.
It seems like Amp2 works better under Win7 than Win10.
I didn't notice such a high CPU load on the same project with same buffer size under Win7. And the machine I used under Win7 was not so powerful as I use now.
PG support says that their DSP team is aware of this issue. Hopefuly, they will fix it.
SOLVED! Soaking overnight in Bourbon did the trick - same as with new harps.
But seriously - it was as simple as firmware update - now it operates flawlessly.
Actually the issue is back but that is with full load. I need to study it with LatencyMon but it seems that what really makes a difference (for the worse) is running Windows 7 emulation using Hyper-V Microsoft virtual machine. If that program is running then it is goodbye to USB audio. Without it the crackling problem is manageable.
As suggested I downloaded and started evaluating Reaper. So far I am very impressed - U44 works like a charm with it. And I managed to transfer some VST plugins - not all - old Mackie Final Mix which was one of my favs does not seem to import correctly. May need to find something equivalent for Reaper.
Ive been having good luck going from amp to fx, but I remember with bias amp 2 there were some issues with the stock speakers making things really mushy compared to bias amp 1....I have some frequency comparison charts up somewhere on the forum, not sure if that's the same issue
