Our studio has 9 DAWs with Windows7(64), WL8.5.2, and RME AIO or AES32 cards. Windows sounds is turned off. WL audio device set for ASIO.
Through out each day, between launches or boot ups, WL will lose its connection to the RME card. This lose of connection is not consistent; it does not happen every time. You hit play but the cursur does not move, no sound is played, WL just hangs for a minute unresponsive. Once WL snaps out of it, the work around is to reopen VST audio connections and hit REFRESH. Then things work normally again. All 9 DAWs behave this way.
Why does WL keep losing the audio connection? It shouldn’t. The audio card configuration has not been changed nor are other apps grabbing the card, as far as I know. I tried deactivating WDM devices in the card control panel, but that has not helped.
This never happened in XP/WL6 or earlier. It is frustrating the staff here. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
