The best audio devices are supported forever I seems and newer drivers developed year after year fine tuning performance and providing new features through firmware updates as was the case with the FFs. You mentioned that RME was very expensive. Excellent mixer application for the cards, and probably the most rock-solid drivers in the business. I am now the happy owner of an RME pci card, and the latency is about as low as it could get I’d guess. The reliability and longevity that products give you because they are built on the bleeding edge of available technology is worth a premium. Can anybody recommend a product?

I don’t think there’s any connection with the speaker company. I’ve never heard about ‘stand alone’ drivers designed to run for any hardware interface, except asoi ASIO4all, which is great as freeware, but not as good as a driver made or adapted for a specific hardware interface whether it’s PCIe, Firewire, USB, thunderbolt or whatever. Reviews on sites like Amazon and such are full of posts by total idiots who don’t have a clue about setting up the equipment.

If there is a sync problem when you mix, you can compensate for that later.

Thanks for pointing that out! Haven’t received registration validation E-mail? But from time to time I mess around with sample libraries in Cubase, so I need low latency asio drivers too. Does anyone have a bit of insight here on available, current devices and the ASIO quality? It’s really a pitty that no asio drivers exist for the odac: Both the conversions from analog to digital and back to analog are included.


Other than that a soundcard might be the best solution. Not every laptop have expresscard slots though. Afterwards every 30 seconds a one-second beep-tone will be played into all input and output channels. I forget the name of a software which does this. For multiclient capabilities I highly recommend you ask the vendor or try it yourself because most cheap USB interfaces don’t support this function. Sadly, many reiews only deal with Audioquality and Features, rarely one does any tests of the ASIO drive if there even is any.

Asio4all works ok, but I hope that a product with dedicated driver allows for lower latency, plus multiclient asio would be nice.

If there’s a weak link on the monitoring side, it’s probably your monitors and acoustics, not your soundcard. If you have over 10 ms of delay, it can really be a problem. The biggest issue I have right now is obviously long term support.

If you’re looking at Apogee, Antelope, Lynx then you’re probably already an expert at these things and I want to come record in your studio: It’s just bfst I want lower latency for midi keyboard recording with sample libraries. And with nothing to compare it with, sound quality is more than good enough.


Happy Holidays!

User Control Panel Log out. Or, do they download the instruments into their keyboard? You should measure the latency sending a signal to the output and timing until you receive it with the output plugged to the input. I could only get a 9ms latency with the usb audio drivers without crackles and that was by setting priority to real time!!!

Best, lowest latency ASIO driver? – Piano World Piano & Digital Piano Forums

Sounds good to me Shades. Firewire is fading fast and thunderbolt is still wait and see and Mac drivers. But for recordinglatency shouldn’t be an issue. TASCAM is as cheap as anyone on the lower end, and has the best bang for buck in a couple of categories.

Thanks for your help. The speaker company was just a few years older.
