Snap, crackle pop goes the Delta 44. I NEED SOME HELP!!!
Ok, I just purchased a Delta 44 and I was trying to record track by track. Which produces really low polyphony (maybe 48 voices playing gigaharp solo) and for some reason I still hear snaps and pops in the recording. I have the delta set up for 44.1KHZ recording at 16 bit. I tried it at 48KHZ and 24bit but that was horrid. My pc specs are as follows:
Compaq Presario - 2.4 GHZ Celeron
375 MB ram
Delta 44 soundcard
SB Live! Value (everything is routed through the Delta the sb live is just filling a space)
My video cards accelerator is shut off.
Windows 98 SE
All other programs closed.
The funny thing is, is that my SB Live! Value never clicked and/or popped when I was recording 138 voices at once w/GSNFX @ 44KHZ 16bit, running on a P3 500 Mhz system with less ram. Also, the free software discs I got from Delta never even read in my cd drive.

Make sure your Delta isn\'t sharing any IRQ\'s with another device (the number one reason for pops and clicks). You may have to move it to a different slot to get an unshared IRQ. Also, use the WDM driver version 184.108.40.206 rather than the latest 220.127.116.11. The later one has problems with Giga under Win9x.
