I've always been a little unclear as to the description of what the Settings/File Streaming/Always Wait For Disc Access To Complete checkbox does or doesn't do. The wording in the help file is a little unclear:
Always wait for disk access to complete
The Always wait for disk access to complete checkbox is the easiest way to ensure sound file recordings are glitch free. When checked, this setting shifts AudioMulch's priority from real-time audio to disk access. This option is most suited to situations where you are recording to a sound file through SoundOut. When this mode is enabled, the recorded file will always be free of glitches no matter how much the real-time audio breaks up. In doing so however it is necessary to reduce the reliability of the real-time audio stream making live glitching far more likely. Any sound from a real-time input such as SoundIn will also be less unreliable.
So, if I want glitch free live audio playback, I leave it unchecked (but run the risk of any recordings I'm doing having glitches), and if I want glitch free recordings, I check it (but run the risk of the live output glitching), right?
Is this setting only applicable when you are running live audio, and not when you are "rendering" something to disc offline/faster than real time, via the "Export to sound file" command?
And this is the killer unclear line: Any sound from a real-time input such as SoundIn will also be less unreliable.
It's the double negative at the end that kills me, shouldn't that be "more reliable", and in that case, actually wrong, and "less reliable" would make more sense?
Sorry for pedantry, but it's been bugging me for many years. :)
