Sorry for the off topic post but there are a lot of smart people here who may be able to help me out.
I just bought an Emu 1616M PCI soundcard and audio dock to replace my faithful Echo Mia card.
I have a P4 2.6ghz with 2 gigs of Ram and 3 Hard drives. I run Cubase SL 2.0 as my sequencer. All functioned nicley with the Echo Mia.
When I load up a song that I have done in the past with the new card I get some noticeable latency and clicks, pops and stuttering. if i increase the latency it gets a bit better (the clicking and popping) but still not as it should be. Plus playing into the sequencer with this degree of latency is maddening. This is all happening with the EMU ASIO driver. If I change the driver to the WDM driver it works better, but again still not perfect.
Why would the Mia work fine and the EMU not so well? Reworking my machine to accomodate this card is going to be a nightmare. Any sugeestions or comments are welcome! If anyone has a better suggestion for a multi in and output audio card in the $500 range I be happy to hear as I am still able to return this one. I do love EMU and the features on this card are really nice. it allows me to dump my mixing board and slim down my setup. Plus the converters are great and it comes with some nice bells and whistles.
Thanks again for any input,
All the very best,
PS Apparently my drivers for the EMU are right up to date as well...
