Will you be able to scratch with the remote controller ?
Come on you guys, dont be like that!
PS: I really would like to know a something about it, because it prevents me from buying the normal 2.1, I first need to know what you can do with the pro version...

that seems to be the case for me...
v1.12 was fast, v2 was good but slower, now v2.1 is very slow esp @ loading the splash screen

1.x requires certain hardware
2.x requires higher spec hardware.
Now, increcements on the x side normally dont require any higher spec hardware. So by this i mean 1.1-1.9 should require the same hardware, but anything above 1.9 (2.x) can specifiy more higher spec kit. Thats the way most programs work anyway.
any 2.x version of atomix should require the same amount of hardware 2.0 did and no more. But when it reaches 3.x then you can demand high spec hardware. I dont know if this is atomix's policy though, its just my 2 pennies worth =O)

There is nothin "professional" about atomix. It's a toy, plain and simple.

well i think your PC is worthless. I'm running a Pentium III 450 with 256 kB of Ram and a Soundblaster PCI512 and i have no
skipping i repeat NO SKIPPING.
In one thing i agree with you, atomixmp3 is simple and with simple i mean it is simple to use.
So if you don't like atomixmp3 stop posting here and buy another program ( but it will skip like atomixmp3 because it's your PC).

hope you find a solution though, best of luck.....

BTW, AtomixMP3 IS professionnal. It's as good as it so called PRO concurents and much cheaper.
And the next PRO version will support Numark MP3 command.

Regarding the splash screen time, it only depend of the skin used (if you use a 1027*768 skin of course ti will be longer to load it)
and on the samples you are using (if you set long samples we need more time to set them in memory)

Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a separate section of the website that deals with the skipping problem? You could take all of the advice and the cures that users have found from the forums, etc and put it all on one page where people with the problem can go. It would save space here and make a lot of people happy.
Anyway, just a suggestion.
From the anonymous post complaining about skipping, I would say that the hardware seems to be more than adequate so the problem must lie elsewhere, I can only suggest searching the forums and seeing the solutions other people have found...
It CAN be cured.

the reason: software-based (AC97) audio. AC97 is consumer junk, another way for companies to make a higher profit.
Do yourself a favor and buy a $15 PCI soundcard that is NOT SOFTWARE BASED - NO AC97 *JUNK*
Creative, CMedia, and Yamaha OPL3 based cards top my recommendation list. these three cards are fairly decent quality, inexpensive (unless you get a stupid audiology) and have good working drivers for win2k/XP.
just my 2 cents..

Second, this problem has been documented quite a number of times on this forum since 2.1 came out - this is a serious bug, regardless of whether some of you are not experiencing it. As I stated before, it renders the software unusable in a performance and recording situation, at least for those unfortunate enough to have "the bug".
Ignoring the issue won't help the prospects of Atomix as a viable professional tool. Bugs are bugs. Fix 'em or don't, It's up to you. You have a great tool, so I'd like to see this issue addressed.

There may also be some others there like "runonce" or "runservices". You can check those also. Everything in those directories will be executed at your system's startup, this slowing it down. The more you have in there, the bloatier your system will be. I like to have the bare minimum there. The only programs that absolutely need to be runing on your computer at all times are "Explorer" (Windows' Shell) and "Systray"(The system tray). The rest is generally loads of unwanted crap(however, it may not always be the case, so before deleting something from there, make sure you know that you don't need it). Deleting those things from the registry will in no way delete them from your computer. Treat this as deleting a shortcut. Also, check your computer's Start Menu's "Startup" directory. It is also executed at startup.
Some other speed tips:
1. Always have at the very least 100mb to 150mb of free space on the computer where the Windows' swap file is located(the virtual memory). Your best option here would be having the swap file on a separate hard disk or partition.
2. Have plenty of Ram.
3. Don't install tons and tons of Fonts as they will slow down your computer's startup time dramatically.
And please, if you don't have a clue of what you're doing when messing in the Windows registry, please don't do it! You may just delete something that was not supposed to be deleted and f*** up your computer(this was auto-censored 8-)).
Hope this helps.
