ASIO troubles?

    Aug 26 2011 | 12:19 pm
    Hi guys! i'm experimenting some ASIO related problem. I have an RME Multiface with the PCI Cardbus Hammerfall HDSP.
    I've done a simple 440Hz sine osc patch.
    Played it in max 5.1.9 standalone using latest RME ASIO drivers : result aliasing. ( attachment 03 )
    Played it in max 5.1.9 standalone using latest DirectSound drivers always with the RME : result everything 's fine ( attachment 02)
    I did a Max4Live version of the same patch and played it in Ableton 8.2.5 using latest RME ASIO drivers : result everything 's fine ( attachment 01 )
    Strange. Seems that ASIO implementation is strange ?
    i'm on Windows 7. when i was on Windows XP with older ASIO RME drivers everything was fine.
    I don't know if it's a Cycling'74 issue or a RME one.
    I did the same tests in reaktor. Reaktor standalone aliases as max standalone does with asio rme drivers. Reaktor loaded as a plugin in Ableton or Reaper sounds just fine. ( use to sound fine with older ASIO RME on Windows XP )
    thanks for the attention and the help

      hi guys! any idea? i use to have the same problem on Reaktor 5.6.0 but yesterday i updated to Reaktor 5.6.1 and the problem is solved.
      With MaxMSP 5.1.9 i still have the problem
      I use(d) a lot of hosts. So i can do a quick report of what works and what does not for the latest version of every host.
      Bidule : Works Usine : Works Ableton Live ( with Max4Live ) : Works Reaktor : Works Reaper : Works
      MaxMSP : Does not Work ( aliased sound ) Wavosaur : Does not Work ( aliased sound )
      any idea?
      many thanks and all the best
      Usine : Works

      FWIW I'm not able to reproduce this problem with Max 5.1.9 and my RME Fireface, Windows 7 Pro 32

      Hi Andrew, AFAIK i think that Firewire based drivers are different from PCM-CIA / PCI based ones. thanks for the report a.
