Asio USB Control Panel 2.7.8
the most complex control of buffer sizes is on tascam’s echo cards, which provide a whole array of buffers in the advanced options, with the largest available at around 2048 samples. there are also two sets of offsets for buffer start and end, which are useful for speeding up or slowing down recordings made with a different sample rate.
once you’re happy with the settings, you can double-click the ‘control panel’ button to make them stick. however, it’s best to reboot your computer at this point if you’ve changed any of the other settings, or you’ll find that the values have reverted to their default values.
if you have a tascam then you’ll find that their default settings can result in very high latency. you may need to tweak the settings of the asio device control in the preferences to get it working, but this is a bit of a grey area. generally i’m happy with the default settings as they’re pretty good for both the echo and icd cards, but with other interfaces i may find that i need to tweak the settings a bit to get them working. however, the settings won’t stick once you reboot.
for example, i used to have a korg nanokontrol running under vst on a windows xp machine, and found that the default settings of 1536-sample buffers and a latency of around 50ms were fairly good, but that i’d have to modify the settings of the asio device control in the preferences to get them to stick for more than a reboot. i’d probably get the latency down to around 15ms if i did this.
then, if i tested the latency on my nagra e-mu pad x4, i’d find that i needed to tweak the settings in the preferences to get the settings to stick once i rebooted, even though this is generally a good choice of asio driver for the pad. having said that, i wouldn’t recommend messing with any of the settings unless you’re sure that you want to get the latency down. if it works fine for you, then the values may stay where they are and you’re set.
-usb audio asio driver- is the best asio driver for audio interfaces, for windows 2000 and later. features: usb-audio support for asio compatible applications like cubase, logic audio, reason, native instruments soft-synths; 32khz, 44.1 khz and 48 khz sampling rate support; 16 bit, 20 bit and 24 bit sample resolution possible; asio 2 support and asio 1 compatible; dithering (e.g. for use of a 24 bit input within a 16 bit application, or vice versa).
the ‘asio isochronous driver’ is excellent, as it does not require setting up the number of buffers and their size by hand (it does this automatically, based on the usb streaming mode setting), and results in a reasonable latency of about 8ms.
if you want to use asio with a midi interface, the best would be the ‘asio midi driver’, which uses the asio transport to communicate with an asio-compatible sound card, and results in a low latency of around 10ms. if you want to use asio with a midi interface, the best would be the ‘asio midi driver’, which uses the asio transport to communicate with an asio-compatible sound card, and results in a low latency of around 10ms.
the ‘asio driver vst plugin’ is very poor, as it does not use the asio transport, and results in a poor latency of about 40ms. if you want to use asio with a vst plugin, the best would be the ‘asio driver vst plugin’ is very poor, as it does not use the asio transport, and results in a poor latency of about 40ms.
the ‘asio driver vst driver’ is also very poor, as it is a vst/au plugin and does not use the asio transport, and results in a poor latency of about 40ms. if you want to use asio with a vst plugin, the best would be the ‘asio driver vst driver’ is also very poor, as it is a vst/au plugin and does not use the asio transport, and results in a poor latency of about 40ms.
