Yea, but my sine waves are still round at the peaks, so it the noise is from the DAC in the ASIO4all program. The noise is between the peaks and appear as sort of ghost sine waves that turn on and off periodically, as well as permanent sinewve fixtures within the actual stucture of the multiple sinewaves. You can see this happen at random and it is not my cables or connections. The noise appears different in appearance than my MME, but equally "disturbing" visually. I guess the code determines what the noise will look and sound like. I guess you have to use your ears to see which one you like better. It is still up in the air for me which one is better in my setup. I will post an extensive thread with pictures after my experiments are done. I will even use VST plugins to see how they fare with noise and sound artifacts along with the built in EQs on Adobe Audition CS5.5.
I just ran a multitrack with multiple sinewave frequencies at 20kHz, 18kHz, 10kHz, and 5kHz at the same time. I turned them all on, then turned one off, then another, and watched my o-scope as I did this. The noise happened mostly when I had multiple frequencies playing at once. If I played one freq the noise is very small almost undetectable, at any freq.
Thanks for the tip on the volume thing by the way. I didn't know that ASIO turned the vol all the way up. It is really cool too see the sinewaves get bigger in steps on my oscope since the volume is "digital" in nature. I dont know where the asio gets all the extra current from, but 40% Vi p-p hike is pretty substantial.
