Windows 7: Windows 7 Home 64 and HT eClaro 7.1 Live audio latency. I give up!

Windows 7 Home 64 and HT eClaro 7.1 Live audio latency. I give up!

Motherboard : ASRock N68C-GS FX AM3+ NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Soundcard : HT | OMEGA eClaro 7.1 Channels PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card

Processor : AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

OK Its been over a week of trying to eliminate/reduce (to an unnoticeable level) of Live playback latency after I install my eClaro Sound card. I plug in my mic and there is a definite latency of audio played back. I've researched ALOT and still am having issues. I even installed Windows XP after I did 7 and ran into more problems with drivers there... So I'm back to 7.

I'm not the most tech savvy person, and have learned most of my knowledge trying to fix my problem. (ex Registry edit, BIOS) Reg back to normal since reinstalling 7

I have successfully taken care of the latency issues with the motherboard/onboard audio. But once I install my sound card the problem returns.

Once I select my eclaro as default playback device... my playback for the mic is gone. "listen to this device is unchecked". Alot of info I found says turn down the mic on playback and turn up the mic on the sound card mixer. That would be easy enough.

Not sure what I need to do? I would like to use my sound card... but might return it and use the crappy motherboard audio....

I built the system strictly for music production. But I'm assuming Windows 7 thinks its a bad idea. Windows XP was very co-operative.

Help m'please! Sorry if I'm all over the place... My brain shot!

I have a Sonar X2 (Producer) studio. Its generally accepted that PC sound cards make poor devices for recording and latency is a prime issue, from what I see on the recording forums.

You would do better with a USB connected recording interface device. The small 2 channel devices are very popular if you don't need any more channels. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is an example. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 | Sweetwater.com

I use a Roland Octa-Capture (8 channels) in my studio.

I've been reading that an interface would help. But once I started reading up on which interface to purchase, I see that alot of them are having issues with Windows 7 as well...

I'll check out that Scarlett 2i2

Thanks for the reply

I have a friend that is using the Scarlett 2i2 with Win 7. No reported problems.
