So long story short I have a Sound Bastard X-Fi Titanium but it sucks… tonight I got the front panel working on my computer so I can plug my headset in to it without having to pull the computer out and mess around in the back of it. But now I have to use my integrated Realtek HD soundcard for this to work. The Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver used to allow other audio to play while it’s being used with my Sound Blaster but now with the Realtek it blocks all other audio output. Did I do something wrong? Is there something else I can do if not? I would prefer to avoid ASIO4ALL because I’m fine with around 20ms latency because I don’t have to make a choice between talking to my friends on Skype and composing in Cubase.
If nothing else, can anyone recommend a good ASIO supported soundcard that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg?
