      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

sox runs slowly, uses 89% CPU

Recommended Posts

Using the command "rec new-file.wav" (as shown in the sox man page) I recorded for 1 minute but the resulting file captured only 16 seconds of audio. During recording the top utility showed sox using 89% CPU. For this test I am using a 64-bit version of Mandriva 2010.2 on a 64-bit single core laptop computer.


Over on my 32-bit desktop computer, running a 32-bit version of Mandriva 2010.2, the command "rec new-file.wav" works fine. Recording for 1 minute produces 1 minute of recorded audio, and sox doesn't use a significant amount of CPU time.


What could be the problem with sox on my laptop?
