Is Dell XPS 15 known to be bad for audio work? Recordings always hiccup.
My XPS warranty has expired so I'm wondering what hope there is to identify the problem I've been suffering with ever since I got this fancy computer.
It is fancy for spreadsheets and office stuff, but for my audio recording it has been awful. I lose a random < 1s of time, randomly, during my recordings.
I've asked around about optimizing win10 for audio, tips from the Adobe Audition forum, tried going into airplane mode before recording, looked at task manager.. nothing has changed, I have to scrutinize every recording I do because there is going to be random bits of time missing that need "fixing".
I can't reproduce this problem on demand, it is random. I can't imagine an experiment to reveal it.
Is there anything Dell can do for me, if I buy a warranty extension?
Thanks for any advice
update: my latest glitch I did the math and it was 0.500 seconds missing

@hardware408 Google "XPS 15 DPC Latency". In fairness, there are quite a few other systems, both Dell and non-Dell, that have DPC latency issues that affect real-time audio recording -- but yes, it's a known issue.
I had some success today with my issue. It seemed to work fine until I typed. Then the sound would be wonky and artifacty typing or not from then on. Even in the sound recorder. I found a setting in the Maxxaudio program under the voice tab. Basically I turned that off in there. And the recordings so far are better. You can hear my typing and room noises but the recording doesn't descend into a mess of digital artifacting. I prefur to hear the background noise then.
