Should I uninstall the newest windows 7 64 bit drivers and reinstall the one from the cd that says it supports vista? I am running sonar 8.5.1 64 bit with a brand new ASUS Essentio desktop running windows 7 64 bit. The cd that came with the unit seems to work but I figured it was best to install the driver that was made to work with windows 7 as I cannot have any mishaps live using the fp10 for backing track playback. Please help........................

I would always install the latest drivers from the web, usually they are more optimized and run better... Also there have been some changes in driver architecture with win7 so it's probably better to get updated drivers.

That might be a sonar setting that's causing the stuttering, I've encountered that, try messing around with the buffer settings in your options audio menu.

I'm actually on here to find out something that's been bothing me with the fp10s. I have 3 daisy chained together. I have the new 5.13 driver installed (i'm using windows 7 64bit), but I'm getting driver interrupts and the lights on the fp10s turn red for a few seconds or so, then turn back to blue. The new driver seems unstable. Now they discontinued the fp10 on us, so what presonus quit on us? That's not right, they need to get this right, even if the product is discontinued, we paid good money for this product to work. I spent $1200 on 3 of these things. They need to do another driver build. Who's with me?

We uninstalled the new drivers and installed version 2.44 from the cd that came with the fp10 and it seems to work. The thing that worries me is the stability of the program / hardware. Will stability be an issue if I am mainly using the fp10 for backing track playback? Is it essential to have the new drivers vs the one on the cd?

I don't think so, I would use whatever works.

As far as new drivers go, I just read something on this site actually, about the latest drivers in audio. They are called WaveRT drivers and are supposedly better then asio, not only in stability, but in terms of data transfer they are on the kernel level (I guess that's really good in computer nerd terms). Anyway, I think that they should make a new fp10 driver using that technology....sounds good to me!

I installed the same drivers on my laptop with windows vista 32 bit and that work fine. Not with windows 7 64 bit though

I think the problem with my setup, not only being that it is the 64bit version of windows 7, but that I have the 3 fp10s daisy chained together. Also, one of the fp10s is actually an older firepod, but I did the firmware update to get it to be an fp10. I don't know...
