Hey Fiend,

I don't know this sound card, but something that you may want to try first, and potentially save yourself money on, is the KX project drivers.

They are open drivers that cut out a lot of the latency on sound cards. I'm using a fairly old Creative Soundblaster Live! Platinum with KX drivers and have very little latency when using Cubase SX with VST plugins. I'm pretty new to it so haven't gotten up to layering up multi-tracks with effects and the like.

Thou KX is tweakable to by-pass certain soundcard ports to make it even more streamlined!

Check it out, otherwise Google your soundcard for reviews on latency and the apps you use.

Let me know how it works out for ya!

p.s. What sort of choons you making??

Actually mate, on second thoughts your problem could be using USB to stream your audio! I've heard that it's too slow for that sort of thing (certainly USB 1, USB 2 would be plenty fast enough) It's ok for using as a midi channel as you're not really sending much data. So if your new card would be an internal PCI it would help alot! I'd still recommend using the KX drivers!

Also using VST plugins with Ableton could be the problem, don't you like the built in effects that come with??

Question on why you're using an external soundcard... Are you using a laptop for your studio pc?? If so, you got any other problems with it?? What specs you got??

Good luck!

Yeah, it sounds like your Audio card is letting you down... The AC97 is a pretty standard card.. probably handles playing an MP3 ok... much more and I'd say you'd be running into problems!

The USB for the MIDI shouldn't be a problem.. and could be useful later if you have loads of MIDI devices you want to connect...

Could be that you are using loads of effects... they can eat processor time!

You say that you have a streamlined system... what are you running?? CPU helps with the number crunching, not just the sound card!

Also there is a new development that sends audio data through the Grafixcard, called BionicFX... Is still in development, and only for NVidia cards! (I've got a new RADION! Bollox!)
Will post a link and stuff later

Do you have a MIDI controller keyboard?? Whats your setup like??

Catch ya later

Do you stream audio over USB or is it just MIDI data?

I'm using an old SB Live card with hacked emu drivers and a keyboard connected via USB and I get very low latency.

Damn, where'd that dude go??

I use a soundblaster live with KX drivers and Korg MicroKontrol via Midi..

Not sure what the dude was using... don't think it was a usb sound card... he was running a lot of stuff through Ableton live and using VSTi effects and getting a shit load of latency...

Don't know what happened to him... Sounds like I was talking to myself now!

Antimeme... what sort of tunes you making and which apps you using??
