Audio card driver latency
Posted by Rick Shao on 16 November 2015 06:35 AM


VST instruments and effect plug-ins can only be monitored with very high latencies.


The audio signal can only be monitored delayed by the system's latency and it is most likely that an audio card without ASIO 2.0 drivers and correspondingly high latencies is in use. It can also be that the wrong driver has been chosen.


The latency of the audio card is displayed in the ASIO device setup (please consult the manual for details). Latencies higher than 6 ms are often disturbing and can only be reduced by using dedicated ASIO 2.0 drivers. Please check whether the correct driver is chosen since both the ASIO-Multimedia driver and the ASIO DirectX driver are inappropriate for working with low latencies. If no additional driver is available, please add an audio card with ASIO 2.0 drivers to the setup.
