I can't remember having told it this way. It sounds as if ASIO would be the culprit. In fact it isn't.
Please look e.g. at my contributions to performance/latency related computer settings/driver issues. A collection of threads you find here. https://forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.ph … 04#p186404
You need to find out what is blocking your computers cpu cores from processing audio related threads fast enough, especially when using smaller ASIO buffer sizes, where things become more and more time critical.
Besides using proper Bios/Windows settings ...
It can also be caused / heavily influenced by your DAWs project and "structure", e.g.
- how many tracks, VST/VSTi
- how many inserts in a track (is being processed in one thread, many and cpu hungry vst need a cpu with high single thread performance
Freezing of tracks can help to reduce the cpu/processing load.
If you do not need to play via virtual instruments where you might need ASIO buffersizes below 256, a higher buffersize is no shame and gives you extra safety when recording.
