the latency is even better when you go to OSX....
this is for real? i can't stand my rme hdsp in osx. when i'm using live, with latency at 3ms (no better then what i was using in os9, and any less and i get pops and clicks all over the place), live moves like molassas. to the point where it just isn't worth it playing with anymore. however, the same composition flys when i use internal audio, and NOT the rme.
more and more i'm coming to believe osx audio is a bad joke. thinking that the rme was to blame, i splurged for a mlan card for my ksp8 fx processor. again, poor performance. i'm getting tired of being a beta lab rat for apple. i'm even considering keeping my rme and buying a ibm laptop. live is my main bag, and i'm heavily considering jumping into the world of reaktor. i'm sick of being in last place with my tibook. sure, i look good with it, but i just ain't having no fun no more.
oh... another comment on the hammerfall... i have a multiface, and half the time i boot up with it, the rme drivers recognize it as a digiface (different ins and outs). i will boot again over and over, or plug and unplug the card, and it usually takes numerous trys to make it work.
why can't anyone just make a product that works without problems? again, rme blames apple for all it's shortcomings.
i loved it in os9. never had to think about it. but that was with logic audio, too. fast as could be. now, with live and osx, life blows.
