Hi Mad Max,
How do you mean software settings? Windows settings? Foobar settings? What specifically?
EDIT: Okay here's something, in Foobar2000 when I change it from WASAPI (HRT MS2+) to DS (HRT MS2+), the blips go away. DS for Direct Sound.
Also, I don't have the problem with Foobar refusing to play my songs when I take it off WASAPI...
EDIT2: Tried to download a Kernel Streaming plugin for Foobar... still hear blips.
Tried to download an ASIO plugin for Foobar... Foobar doesn't even execute.
Guess I'm stuck with Direct Sound?
Maybe I should try posting in a thread about the HRT Music Streamer rather than here?
EDIT3: Just found this, looks like I have some reading to do:
EDIT4: Thinking of dropping Foobar in favor of MusicBee, which doesn't seem to have any problems with my HRT MS2+.
You set the playback buffer too low or too high. This always needs to be tweaked.
File > Preferences > Output > Buffer length
I use it on 100ms. If you get blips, raise it a bit. If you still get blips, raise it some more. Keep going until the blips stop.
