Already losing voices with 4 tracks playing
Yesterday I had my first jam that kind of led to a song... but with the 4th track, already voices where dropping out.
I had a drum kit track, a sample-synth track, a synth track and another kit track with a time-stretched sample.
The main thing(s) that kept being dropped/cut off where long samples.
I did extensively use some delay automation in the kit track, and all tracks had some form of delay and reverb, but I wouldn't suspect voices being stealed/dropped so quickly... but removing the kit delay automation did seem to help. Also, I got voices dropping when they Deluge needed to load something, like a new synth preset.
It also seemed to help when not using time-stretching. (i.e. minimising processor load seemed to help)
Is this normal behavior?
I've seem demo's on youtube of people doing much wilder stuff, without voices being stealed or dropped.
