Runtime Error Message and pc specs

I just installed 3.3.1 onto a pc and am getting a runtime error just like many others.

Intel Celeron CPU J1900 @ 1.99 GHz
64 bit operating system
500 GB HD, 344 GB free
Realtek High Definition Audio

Runtime Error: [buffer 0, line 87] - SonicPi::Lang::Core::TimingError
Thread death ±-> :live_loop_hihat
Timing Exception: thread got too far behind time

Can you show the code you are using which give this error?

One thing to be aware of is how energy savings preferences can interfere with the real time capabilities of your system.

Take a look at this post for a bit more info: Weird distorted noises in playback, not present in recordings - #2 by samaaron


Uninstalled 3.3.1 (64 bit)
Installed 3.1.0 (32 bit)

Sonic Pi ran longer without getting the runtime error, but it still happened.

Energy settings are set to high performance. No energy savings used at all… zero.

I haven’t tried ASIO4ALL yet. That’s a task for tomorrow.

Hi @tjvigil66 - as mentioned, it would be helpful to see an example of the code copied here that causes the problem - the smallest example that does so. (Remember to use three backticks ``` on lines either side of the code to give it nice highlighting :slightly_smiling_face:)
