I just bought a brand new PC with a brand new UR22 :
Asus V77-A / Intel i5 3570k
Windows 7 64bits
Cubase is OK, it runs smoothly with pristine sound, UR22 is doing a great job for a low end sound itf. BUT… playing any game results in a constant noise/buzz out of my monitors. This buzz is pitched by any move of my USB mouse (kind of fun but irritating : i can’t play no more).
I tried COD Ghosts and Batman AO… same buzz. The only difference i see between Cubase and a game is the way the system access the sound itf : Cubase = ASIO ; Game = DirectX
Here are the steps i followed in order to solve my problem :
- update UR22 drivers (up to date : 1.8.3)
- update DirectX 11 (June 2010 version found on Clubic)
- change sample size
- deactivate HD audio chipset from my MB
Nothing worked and i feel stuck.
I seen there is a low freq noise on a few batches of UR22 but i checked my serial : its not included in the list of defectuous materials provided on steinberg website. Beside i don’t really have a low freq noise everytime but a mid freq buzz on directX programs.
Could someone help with this issue ?
Thanks a lot.
