Asus Xonar STX stuttering-audio skipping during browsing (ASIO)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I cant fix the stutter no matter what i do, i tried 80ms in ASIO panel, its getting better but there is still stutter-skipping.

 

Tried Uni Xonar drivers, 3 versions nothing changes...disabled onboard audio in BIOS, all high performance in cp, all power savings turned off in BIOS still no use.

 

Any help would be great.

 

P.S. Intel G1610@2.6 fixed freq + 4GB ram + SSD - 2 days old Win 7 installation.

Try removing the STX card from the computer, powercycling the computer once, then put the STX back in.

when you use ASIO or WASAPI, other programs that use system sounds will be blocked. in the case of the xonar ST/STX I found it will make the ASIO/WASAPI music stutter. basically whenever another program plays sound through system sounds, my foobar player music would stutter for a split second. i found that other sound cards (such as creative xfi titanium HD) does not do this.

 

if urs stutter continuously without anything else trying to play audio through system sound, then something might be wrong with ur card/program settings. maybe try WASAPI?

Yes i know that when you play sound it stutters, but i dont play any medi files, just browsing.

 

I will try to remove the card and re-plug, and ill also try to use WASAPI, is WASAPI lower quality then ASIO? they told me its better to use ASIO with STX cause its ASIO card.

wasapi and asio both achieve the same thing, which is bypassing the operating system's sound processing and giving the media player direct access to the sound card hardware. there should not be any quality difference between the two. the only thing is wasapi was added in windows vista, so you are stuck with asio if you are on xp or older.

run your media player and its audio thread in high priority, and your browser in low?
