Yesterday was an historic day in this country and the rest of the European Union, as one of the most popular songs in the world finally became public domain.
For those of you that read my last article, you’ll know that I had to turn the power management off on the PCI slots to make my sound card work properly. Well tonight I’ve been comparing the new WASAPI drivers vs the ASIO drivers on my RME HDSP9632 sound card using SONAR Platinum, and the effective latency results were quite surprising:
When it comes to computers in my house, it never rains but it pours. Microsoft released their monthly Patch Tuesday updates on 8 November 2016, which I duly installed and rebooted, and turned the computer off.
