I'm having this super strange Issue. I never have audio dropout problems when using my xt as a USB interface. It works fine playing back music from my HDD, and even from youtube it's fine.
But while using Bandcamp in chrome, with a few tabs open, it causes audio dropouts. Sonar will recognize an audio dropout, even though my CPU usage meter won't even jump over 5%.
The problem seems to be related to me switching tabs and interacting with google chrome. I ran the latency checker tool, everything seems fine. I never have problems with playback or recording in Sonar.
AMD phenom x3 @ 3.8ghz 12gigs of RAM.. I don't think this is a performance issue. I don't know if this is related to me installing HD300 drivers recently, I am not sure if this problem occured before I installed those drivers.
This doesn't occur when I use Internet explorer. And it doesn't occur when using the soundcard inside my computer with chrome, Only when using the XT as a sound device. Also note changing buffer size does not have an effect.
Can someone with an XT try and replicate this? These kinds of things drive me crazy and I might reformat just to try and fix this issue. quickly changing tabs seems to cause the dropouts to happen more often, although it doesn't happen constantly. It's very strange.
Anyone have any Ideas? Thanks.
