I’m pleased to say the new 1.9.8 driver seems to be working PERFECTLY for me!!
No dropouts at all yet!
Obviously I’m sorry to hear that for some people the problem remains but, as a regular contributor to this thread since Page One - and someone who was pulling their hair out with desperation trying to find a solution, I am DELIGHTED to finally be rid of the dropouts!!
It seems Steinberg have been working steadily on this for months, quietly listening to forum unrest and slowly edging toward solutions.
I’m sure they’ll continue their work and hopefully the lingering problems that are still harrying some users will be finally laid to rest.
