What soundcard are you using. The SB cards in "full duplex" mode can
give trouble. Are you recording MIDI or Audio? try altering the Audio
buffers settings. This may help. How much RAM do you have, and what
speed machine are you using? RAM will not increase AUdio tracks, but
can help a lot with programme performance.
Try just leaving tyhe programme running for about a minute and see if
it fixes itself.
