At the moment i have 2 different M2PC setup's One with an atom processor duo 1.8 ghz with 2 gig ram. The other is a laptop intel duo 2.4 ghz and 4 gig ram.
When i move 2 faders and use the grand master on the atom pc the M PC software is getting slow. What i have noticed is that it takes longer for the software to make all the actions. Another example is when i try to use 2 or 3 faders at the same time and also try to switch from screen view. Is this because of the processor power or the ram or maybe the usb connection? I am curious about the underlying thoughts about this issue.
I did not had any problems with the laptop so far.
It isn't a very strong CPU but it should perform better than you describe. We are adjusting how the M2PC usb communication works to improve this. Do you have a color picker open by any chance when you experience this?
I do not have anything open on that moment. I also noticed that the touchscreen reacts slow when i select the wave or steps value in the fx parts of the fixture. I double click on the wave or step button and it takes a few seconds to open the value dialog.
