When real-time sound is off, my recording skips. When real-time
sound is on, the sound quality degrades as a function of how much
other stuff is in memory. In particular, if I am playing back a song to
record another track on top of it, the sound quality of what I record
is completely unusable.
This is unacceptable behavior on the part of the BeOS, particularily on a
450Mhz/128M machine. I hesitate to blame the BeOS for this, but
the evidence is pretty convincing.
Possibly I'm recording at an unreasonably high sampling rate,
but I can't find anywhere to change it, either at the system or the

Woohoo! Dan Helfman, whom I will be living with next year in a room
the size of a refrigerator carton, has a personal
slang dictionary! I should write some software for managing one's
personal slang dictionary. That might encourage more people to
have them. All those without personal slang dictionaries will taste
my lizard steel!

I got a RAM checking utility. Even while simultanously mixing a
bunch of old tracks and recording a new one on top of that, the
BeOS stays within the first 64 megs of RAM. I have half my RAM
doing absolutely nothing, and the recording still sounds horrid!
