Studio monitor / external soundcard help - popping & crackling Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

ez all. I just upgraded to a pair of krk rokit 5s from a pair of some crummy alesis monitors that used usb. I'm using the Numark DJ i/o box to output audio to the krks, which i got a while back to run virtual dj & my dj controller for dicking around with mixing.

The problem is that since upgrading I now experience tons of popping / clicking, etc. during playback both in FL studio 8 & w/ general listening (like youtube vids or itunes). I've got FL recognizing the numark box using asio4allv2 w/ the buffer rate jacked up as high as it'll go

Outside of the DAW, the new setup is a total disaster. I know iTunes doesn't allow for asio4all output (not sure about media player or whatever i use to stream music on the net) & since getting the new monitors listening to anything on itunes is impossible - the clicking, popping & stuttering is out of control Mad streaming from the net isn't as bad, but any scrolling, page loading causes pops. - which to me seems like a buffer issue (i think?)

not sure if its my comp (dont rememb specs right now, but am running 32bit vista), the numark box, or maybe some weird interference???

any insight plz??? this is driving me mental! Huh

My soundcard has a dedicated ASIO driver which performs better than ASIO4ALL.
Vista is known to be a troublemaker, I stayed on XP to avoid that.
My advice: look around for better drivers.

asio4all is ok for basic set ups.
but as BD has just mentioned use the asio settings on your soundcard.
