For what it's worth:

On my Win7 64bit (i7 860@2.8 8gigs) -
I had a problem with 1.2 wherein, when ever I switched to get my buffer down, the driver wouldn't 'take' and the sound (from ANY source) became static filled and almost inaudible. Switching back to the original rate did not remedy the problem. So, in other words, the driver worked fine ONLY on the installed buffer size. Changinf it, up or down, rendered it useless and it wouldn't wrok any longer at any rate unless re-installed.

1.2.1 - Works wonderfully (so far). Buffer changes have NOT affected the sound. No pops, clicks, runs, or errors.

Daddy like !

Well dang it !

Again, this is Windows7 -
1.2.1 isn't hanging as well as I was hoping. All was well, when for (this time) no reason at all, the sound went into a severe scratchy static (technical term). Only now, simply opening the VSL and changing the buffer rate did nothing. During past version troubles, a simple switch from 128 to 512, or what ever, did the trick and it cleared the sound. 1.2.1 is not changing rates when selected. Static all-round.

This time, I didn't do a re-install, I restarted and : all is sounding great again.

"Something" is causing the sudden switch to static. It does it at random. (see above post for the first part of this story)

Sounds great, when it does. I have faith!

Fire up LatencyMon and see if its something other than the driver.

I've run this driver for hours at a time live with no issues like you describe. Not doubting you, just trying to get to the bottom of the problem.

Haven't you experienced any problems while installing your audiobox 1818VSL?

Latencymon is a tool for identifying a number of system problems. It not only tells you if something is wrong but the driver that is causing it.

Do a Google search and you'll find it.

I have AudioBox 44VSL, and I am using USB 3.0 on Lenovo Laptop with Windows 7 x64.

I have a problem with 1.2 and when ever I switched to get my buffer down, the driver would (from ANY source) became static filled and almost inaudible. I am not able to adjust Latency!

I was hoping that after switching back to the original rate would help! But NO!
In other words, the driver worked fine ONLY on the installed buffer size. Changing it in Driver Settings is useless after that point and it would not work any longer at any rate unless re-installed.

I also have USB 2.0 on my Laptop, and I may try to use this port instead. I have not yet tested it. However so far changing settings on this driver, destroys the sound, and I am afraid to touch it.

I am also using StudioOne , and I have noticed that changing the settings within the project may work. Actually selecting templates, seems to be working. So is this the driver or AudioBox software problem?

Monolithent -

Latency stayed in the green, with a couple "yellow" darts, but stayed within specs for streaming. The main trouble(s) seems to be for me, the same as mmihalj has stated with the "static" sound reproduction. Very similar to the "old days" when we used to connect speakers with bare wires and when they touched one another, the sound played static filled and not grounded. (Remember that?) For the most part, when it doesn't short out, it is pristine!

My latest adjustment, for what it's worth: I went into the power settings and in the advanced section, under USB settings / USB selective suspend setting - I changed it to "Disabled"
In the same area, under Processor power management/Minimum processor state - I set it to "100%"

Both of these changes have been in effect for a few days and, so far, no interuptions.

I hope you're untouched or back to it, after Sandy.

Thanks, we are back to 100% mission capable in my area. But the coast is still a bit of a mess. We'll be back in time for another crappy MTV reality series.

And it's good to hear you're up and running.

badness, are you running on 1.2.1 beta?
Also adjustments you made are: power settings and in the advanced section, under USB settings / USB selective suspend setting - to "Disabled" In the same area, under Processor power management/Minimum processor state - set to "100%"

In addition, are you using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0?

Thanks

You can find the directions for the power settings in the knowledgebase. Give them a shot if you're having problems.

If you have USB 2.0, that is the type of port to use. USB 3.0 will work ONLY if you go to the USB 3.0 chipset manufacturers website and download their latest driver for their chipset. Windows 7 does not support USB 3.0 properly according to microsoft. Windows 8 supports 3.0 native however.
