Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit External External Sound System
I previously had this device on a really old, slow Win XP SP3 single core PC, slight issue of latency but not one which could stop me recording demo tracks for my band.
Yesterday, i purchased a brand new super quick samsung laptop and spent most of today trying to install the s'blaster on it. I had to go on creative's support site to download driver (i eventually found the windows 7 beta driver provided best performance). i also had to download the 'audio center' software to make the box actually interact with the laptop because provided software wasnt working (to enable monitoring, graphic EQ etc)
i was surprised to find over a quarter of a second of latency with this miles more powerful machine. I suspect the driver to be at fault but i may be wrong (it does occasionally 'hiccup', ie the speakers make a small popping sound which suggests to me a dodgy driver anyway)
is there anything i can feasibly do about this (without having to do any major software editing) because i splashed all my cash on this laptop and can't afford an EMU now!
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
If it were me, I would find out if 'ALL' of the drivers are available for XP. If they are, I would then downgrade to XP. I would also let Creative know about the performance problem. They may be able to fix it.
