    Sound Card Latency

    Yippee!!!!!
    Finally, having bought GOS about 18 months ago because it was on offer, I can finally afford a machine to run Gigastudio on. I\'m pretty sure about most of it - processor, hard-drives etc. I\'m just not sure about sound cards.

    In my old machine I had a Creamware PulsarI, which offered great latency when it came out, but I don\'t know any more. And I believe performance with GSF drivers can be different from other measures anyway, and have heard rumours that the Pulsar is terrible with Gigastudio. I also have a Yamaha SW1000XG, but I don\'t know if there are any GSF drivers for it under Windows XP.

    Can anyone help? Will my Pulsar be ok for playing parts in from a keyboard, or is it too long in the tooth? What\'s the very lowest latency I can get?

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">i have a pulsar 1 which with ASIO can give 13mS which is OK, but with the giga driver it seems to give between 25mS to 35mS!!! . I have spoken to Creamware about this and they can\'t help. They only ever tested a Pulsar II which seems to be OK
    I\'d try it anyway you may be lucky but I can\'t use it for Giga. It\'s still a great card to use in a DAW.

    BTW this is with Win2K SP4, it may be different with win98?

    Also, make sure that under performance settings, advanced, that you set processor scheduling to background services. ASIO drivers run as a background service and this helps lower the latency.
