I had the same problem with my Mbox 3 pro, and concluded that there's a conflict between drivers when you use your interface for both windows and your DAW. Install the original drivers, try disabling your sound card as the default audio device in Windows (just let the Windows sound card as your default one) and use it only with your DAW.

I've managed to get consistent results now! ~7ms with 128 samples, ~4ms with 64 samples @ 44100 Hz. I had Audio Out connected into Audio Mic Input port. Now it is connected from Audio Out into Audio Stereo Input. (i'm not sure why that made the difference, or if the measurements are reliable) Update: Out of curiosity, to make sure that CEntrace tool is ...

There are all kinds of specific technical answers that you might receive. However, the one general rule that I have found to be true with audio workstation setup is this: some system configurations will work, and some will not work, period. You are putting together a house of cards made of computer hardware, computer software, audio subsystem architecture, ...

Give ASIO4ALL a shot. There's a good chance you can use it to run both your interfaces with the same audio driver, to use the outs of your internal and ins of your external in any of your software. http://www.asio4all.com/

ASIO is a protocol for communicating with a sound card. Normally the operating system handles the audio path, which results in passing through many layers before actually hitting the soundcard. Each layer adds latency. ASIO allows a software application to talk directly to the soundcard, avoiding all intermediate layers. This is how you achieve reduced ...

You can do this on Mac OSX but not on Windows. ASIO is limited to one device only, whereas on OSX you can create "aggregate or Multi-Out" virtual devices which you can then configure within your DAW.

No, it is not currently possible to use ASIO in a DAW as an input source only without using it as the output on Windows. However, I have seen people claim ASIO4ALL let’s you mix devices in some DAWs.

On the Microsoft Windows, you can use ASIO4ALL to use an audio output that is different from the audio input. For example, in the following screenshot, ASIO4ALL is configured to use the Focusrite USB as input, and the Virtual Audio Cable as output: Note that you have to check the device (e.g., "Virtual Audio Cable") in addition to the the in (or out) ...

I'm going to start by saying I recommend just not bothering with this, and instead putting your music file into your DAW. However if you really want to get this working, I've had success in the past using the following tricks: (Note that these have always been hit or miss, some days it worked, other days it didn't, and I have no idea why it varied so much.) ...

What you interpret as inconsistency is just the normal system behaviour. I would say your results are pretty consistent, considering the normal variance that can occur in a multitasking system running multiple applications. Even if you have a system running only your audio applications as end user applications, normal system functioning (memory management, ...

ASIO's main advantage is quicker, easier routing of audio inputs and outputs. It allows you to easily wire inputs and outputs directly in to your audio recording software and eliminates a lot of the overhead normally associated with consumer sound cards. The benefit of reduced latency comes when dealing with multiple channels of audio. Even if you only ...

It's likely to be an ASIO driver problem. I was having a sound issue a couple days ago with FL Studio and all I needed to was toggle some of the settings. i found the solution for my problem with the video below, it's for FL Studio but if you imitate the instructions on Cubase you shouldn't have a problem. Let me know if you figure it out or not, i dont ...

I dont use Cubase but if its like other DAW's the problem is most likely this, Generally when a new track (or project with new tracks) is added to a DAW (at least in digital performer) its muted and set to the default input. You have to select the input for the track (in your case the CAD) and un-mute it to hear it. Most DAW's allow you to set up a default ...

ASIO is a technology designed for low-latency. You shouldn't see any quality improvements (or indeed, any quality difference at all) using ASIO over, say, Directsound. It's not about quality, just about how close to the hardware the software is. Where you will see a quality difference is in using different hardware. Your Delta 44 is most likely going to ...

It is, from personal experience, pretty uncommon for builtin/integrated sound hardware to include drivers with ASIO support. If they do exist, you'll find them on the manufacturer's website if they aren't already included with the hardware. If they don't, you're stuck with ASIO4ALL (which itself is kind of a workaround) unless you invest in some audio ...

Integrated sound cards generally do not have ASIO drivers. However, if yours does then your most likely to find it through the HP website in their drivers section. Or perhaps look at the drivers section from the sound card manufacturers website.
