I set Foobar for Wasapi event mode with a 200ms buffer or so, and it never has any issues playing off my laptop or desktop drive. Externals will occasionally pause during playback for a few seconds because Windowsneeds to read the directory or something silly like that. This only happens when I have left it idle for a while and I assume it could be solved via power settings. Haven't looked into it yet.
I think most USB issues are not actually jitter, just related to buffering.
Just some ideas and places to investigate. Hope you can eliminate the issues
Thanks for the follow up, mikoss. I did manage to eliminate the issues. No need to upgrate to V2... at least to me. :-)
So, I am running Wasspi with 3200 ms of buffer, event mode, no external drive, a single device in USB (Aune itself), HD is a spinner.
More importantly, I think, I gave Properties >> Advances >> Playback >> WASAPI:
- push mode: 500 ms
- event mode: 100 ms
- high worker process priority: on
(Note the increase of 5X in event.)
So, I think you are right. Buffers appears to be the issue. But I take there is the overall buffer and the specific one for the Wasapi type (Properties >> Advances >> Playback >> WASAPI)??
