I bought the 1010 and turned right around and took it back! I encountered so many pops I couldn\'t get anything done. I tried everything to get card to work with no success. Midiman was useless as I couldn\'t get a reply - phone or e-mail! Tascam was pretty much the same way, useless and arrogant. BTW - I was running XP home on a P4 - 1.8ghz 850cs system. If I were you I\'d get rid of it ASAP.
Can anyone share their recent success/disaster stories and fixes or ideas regarding using the MAudio Delta 1010 under WinXP Pro?
I hear the occasional random pop even outside Gigastudio when testing with commercial CDs and mp3s. I\'m using the most recent drivers and have no IRQ conflicts, trying all kinds of buffer settings from 64 up to 1024.
Does your MIDI IN light \'flutter\' constantly(blink really fast) when your keyboard is plugged in to it?
I find that when I change the \'sync\' setting on the keyboard to internal clock vs. external sync it changes the way the MIDI IN LED lights. On external sync it goes solid, on internal clock it makes the LED flutter. When the keyboard is played, the LED will go solid when the note is sent.
Maybe there\'s some unnecessary MIDI info being sent through the MIDI port?
Btw, I\'m not saying its unusable, the sound quality is generally very good. I\'d say a couple of distinct pops might happen every 1 minute on average during realtime monitoring. For realtime output it would obviously be a problem but I have a workaround in the form of the Capture to Wave function, which is producing clean recordings.
Still, it\'s annoying not being able to fix this problem.
Steve, I had Exactly the same problem! Playing no note on the keyboard the Midi in Light would flutter constantly. I clocked it to my 888/24 and the other way around and still had the problem. sounds like you bought my unit! from GC.
