I’ll join the thread. Just bought the UR22 mkII and when monitoring with headphones via the UR22 headphone jack I’m getting regular dropouts every few seconds, regardless of whether it’s from my DAW, or youtube, or any sound file.
What I’m trying to do is play my Roland TD9 electric drums and record as midi, triggering EZ Drummer 2 software into Cubase LE AI Elements 8, on my laptop. My laptop is a Dell Vostro, 8GB DDR3 sdram, running 64 bit W7, dual core i5 2410M 2.3GHz with turbo speed up to 2.9GHz and onboard HD audio soundchip and IDT audio control panel.
The UR22 is unusable because as I record (or just listen) it cuts out randomly. I’ve tried with 5V power supply plugged into the wall. Used a different USB cable 28/24. Swapped between the built in Intel graphics and the AMD graphics in my laptop. Disabled the wi-fi network card. Closed down all browser windows. Don’t know what else to do and if I should return it (I’m still within a 30 day return period) and buy something like a Focusrite 2i4, if that might make any difference?
Someone on another forum suggested I should upgrade to windows 8.1 or 10 as the architecture changed to handle sound differently.
However, when I use the ASIO4ALL driver, I don’t get any dropouts. Sound quality seems about the same to me. But I can’t monitor from the UR22 headphone jack, I have to monitor via my laptop jack, and also I have no control of volume without using the UR22 headphone jack. But by using ASIO4ALL, it means I’m just using the Steinberg as a midi interface, and I just returned a Roland UN-ONE midi interface to buy an audio interface, ie, the UR22.
