Topic: Fireface Pops and crackles - performance?
I just bought a new Fireface UC and I'm very satisfied with it. It sounds great and it has everything I need.
But honestly, I expected more in performance and latencies. I can run heavy project (~60% cpu) with 512 buffer but 256 and below causes random pops and crackles. If I use it with 48-96 buffer sizes, sound is distorted - cpu is still max. ~70%. Another strange thing is that RME latency settings panel shows 0/0 errors. Is that normal? I've tried everything - except AHCI to IDE in bios, but I think I'll have to reinstall my windows if I do that.

Driver: 0.956 (babyface driver, but same performance with the newest fireface driver)
