    Choppy playback from audio player while ripping to FLAC

    First, let me say that I really like the dBpower applications.

    I am currently ripping my CD collection to FLAC but have been unable to listen to music while ripping. It appears the ripping/encoding process pegs my CPU usage to 100% preventing normal playback of saved files.

    I have tried setting the priority of the AMP thread to real time without success.

    I am running WinXP Pro on a 2.2Ghz machine. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Try the other output method in dAP (dap options menu >> amp >> output to),

    If no luck I know the Power Pack will give access to priority for the FLAC encoding, which can be set to low, but you might not want the PP.

      Per your suggestion, I tried switching between the output options a couple time with no success. I have Power Pack and have tried Low, and even Idle with no improvement.

      I have also discovered the problem occurs other times the CPU is at 100% so it is not a problem with the ripper but with the player.

      I will poke around with other system settings to see if I can find a solution. Any additional advice is appreciated.

      Thanks again,

        The player has multiple threads, the main playing thread is set to a high priority. The only thing that should butt in would be DMA transfer with the hard disk.

          I eliminated the problem by ripping from my DVD drive instead. Not sure what the problem is but at least I can listen while I rip now
