Reply To: V.U and “PLAY” icons not showing in my Stage
Evan is right.
Unfortunately the new meters use a lot more processing power which can lead to dropouts with connections that worked previously with the analg style VU-meters.
For those slower machines Alex made a toggle to be able to disable all meters (even your own on the left side) getting the same connection quality as before. This toggle is the blue field with the hook right of your own level meter in the left column. The small word “on” below has the same function.
So if you always get a lot of dropouts, even with a sample and network buffer size of 512, you should disable the meters to check if it would work then. If it does, level in with meters and disable them afterwards for musical work.
The setting of this field is not remembered, so check that always if you need to disable the meters for less dropouts.
