Hello! There’s one thing I need to understand about Sonic Pi.
It works okay as long as I keep it simple with sounds, for instance playing one line of sample. But as soon as I put more elaborate and complex sounds, the application starts to lag, the sound falls behind in timing, a a thread death results from this somewhere, and Sonic Pi doesn’t play even the simplest sound if I stop the sound. I press the “Run”, but nothing starts. Moreover, the app’s sound starts to run on its own, taking out of the sound some of the commands on the buffer (e.g. leaving only percussions, drums or the :bd-haus sample), slowing the tempo. When I stop the sound, Sonic Pi doesn’t even run the simplest sound, I press “Run” but the program stays silent.
I took the complex sounds from one of the tutorials that can be found in this forum, which I leave below:
For your information, I have the portable version of Sonic Pi on my computer and my laptop’s system runs on Windows and I have around 60 tabs in Google open. This might help you figure out what’s wrong, let me know if you need further details.
Can anyone help me? I’d be grateful for that. I hope my explanation of the issue is clear enough. Thank you in advance to anyone who will lend a hand. Have a nice day.
