Distortion in VST Instruments

I'm running a very simple Synfire project consisting of three Instruments. They sound Chromophone 3, and two Omnisphere patches.

Everything is OK if I have only the Chromophone 3 and ONE of the Omnisphere patches sounding, but if I choose to have the second Omnisphere patch sound, the audio gets very scratchy.

I have a high-end W10 computer, and can run gobs of VST's in Cubase (including this exact same setup even while having Synfire in the background) without encountering this problem. So why do I encounter it in Synfire?

Thanks.

What's your CPU load at the time you experience these glitches?

You may need to increase your audio buffer size in Synfire to give CPU more time to complete a slice of audio.

I finally figured out the problem...my computer's motherboard is defective. So the fault was not with Synfire.

Now I need to send the computer in for repair, which might take a month. This means I may miss the rollout of 2.0, in which case I'll be watching enviously from the sidelines as everyone else oohs and ahhs over it.

Never do more in the morning than you can undo in the afternoon.
