Foobar waspi HELP!! - Page 3

post #31 of 41

Ok, let's go over the basics then.

 

First of all, you need to have perfect playback through DS, WASAPI/ASIO/KS are of no consequence until you have glitch-free playback. Set the buffer to something between 800-1600ms, try different USB ports, go to Device Manager and disable power management for both the ports and the device, as well as going to the Windows power settings and disabling selective USB suspend.

 

Also, do those tests with no ethernet adapter enabled. And do post a screenshot of your DPC latency, measured through Thesycon DPC Latency Checker. Post a screenshot of your DPC latency with ethernet adapters disabled and another screenshot with ethernet adapters enabled.

Okay, I'll try to do those things later this afternoon and post some screenies. Of course the first thing that I tried when this problem started was to move the dac cable to another port. Usually it would fix it for a short period and then the jitter would start back. I've also tried every buffer setting to no effect, so that's not it. 

 

I will work on the other suggests and post back. Got to get out of here for work!!

And please post your system specs, hardware and software wise.

I used it to diagnose similar issues that I couldn't nail down. In my case it was bckground noise in the right channel, which has disappeared when running Fidelizer. This allowed me to focus on the running processes and I found the pest: our corporate messenger....

All I'm saying is give it a go and see what happens. If it changes anything, at least you'll know where to dig. The changes it makes are not permanent, so after the reboot you'll be back to normal.

As some as I load up some flash based internet games I get heavy popping. I close it and all seems fine. Now that is using direct sound with the output for foobar. With waspi I get looks of crackles no matter what I'm doing on the pc.

 

I have considered going to the bifrost and using the optical connection to get around this if it's a usb issue. But that's an expensive gamble. I want the bf anyway so I may give it a shot. 

 

I'm happy I have a DAC with multiple inputs.. USB gave all kind off problems. First pops & clicks, then chrashing drivers when switching from Foobar to YouTube etc. Now switched to optical and problems solved bigsmile_face.gif

Does Schiit have some kind of return policy that would allow you to test out whether optical fixes the problem? That may be the way to go...

Schiit has a no hassle return policy for like 15 days I think, but there's a 5% fee.

 

I have a feeling Matt just wants an excuse to buy a bifrost anyways tongue_smile.gif

Busted. redface.gif Honestly though, this has me pulling my hair out. I want to get home at the end of the day and escape into the beautiful music produced on my headphones. And what do I get instead? Pop, click and crackle. mad.gif

 

Makes you want to punch and old lady in the kidney. jk

I wanted to chime back and just say thanks to those who made suggestions here. I just got the bifrost in today. I have it setup with the USB out option. I have played lot's of music over the past hour and am happy to report that playback in perfectly jidder free and the music is smooth like butter!! biggrin.gif

 

I have not tried the optical out option which was my next choice had the usb not worked. I will try it later just for comparison. But for now I'm once again enjoying listening to music with no maddening playback issues. 

 

thanks everyone!!

 

Update...the optical connection work perfectly also.
