Topic: Crackling with FF800 when buffer size set to 256 samples or lower
I have crackling when using VSTis (Alchemy, Battery,Reaktor, Kontakt, etc) in the latest version of Cubase 5.5 32bit on my Windows 7 64 bit machine when buffer size it set to 256 samples or lower. I am using latest FF800 firmware and latest drivers. Latest drivers for video card and other hardware. All MS updates installed. I checked my performance on Latency Monitor and Sycon and all is well with no dropouts.
I need to be able to have 256 samples of latency because 512 causes too much delay from time I strike a key to time the sound can be heard.. doesn't feel "live" enough for me. So 256 is imperative.
I am running a quad core i7 with 8 GB of RAm so this has nothing to do with my machine
