I have a problem I am wondering about. I am building a mixer for live use. I have a few things that cause serious audio dropouts that are not related directly to my code.
1. I have a help tab in the toolbar that simply opens and html doc. While loading, audio stops (max headroom effect) somethimes for several seconds.
2. Same effect is I load a vst plugin.
I assume it is related to file reads interupting the windows message loop. I tried to simple create a new thread so I could set low priority and do the load in that thread. But I get an error about having to do it in the message thread (something like that. This was a while ago).
What is the correct approach to aviod this king of problem.
