GX Sound Glitches on Windows 7 64
by Datura on 2012-01-04 11:11:31

I bought a Pod Studio GX and get lots of sound glitches on Windows 7 64 bit.

It works fine on the same PC using XP, not a single glitch.

I've followed both guides, Win7 Tweaks http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2085">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2085">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2085 & USB Audio Troubleshooting http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-4282">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-4282">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-4282  but it still has the same amount of audio glitches.

I've ran LatencyMon & DPC and there are no spikes.

I've always ran my operating systems bare minimum to increase performance and like I said I've followed both Line 6 guides.

What do you think is causing these glitches and how can I fix them?

there's no doubt different hardware between your 2 machines... so its not as simple as just a difference in the operating systems...

but i would also get slim drivers for free...

you'd be amazed how many drivers it will find and update... it can make a big difference.

I will explain more clearly. I don't have two machines. The only difference is the operating system.

My drivers are up to date and simple to keep up to date as I have nothing extra on the PC.

1 motherboard, 1 hard drive, 1 usb device - the GX - and lots of scratchy, clicking, digital noise.

Please, what do you think is causing these glitches and how can I fix them?

slimdrivers will find driver updates that you might have missed...

that and the move from 32 to 64bit is a HUGE difference in drivers, even on the same hardware.

I didn't want to install slimdrivers because I'm quite sure my system is up to date but I did try it anyway and it found no updates.

I know it's a huge difference 32 to 64, I know a lot about computers, but I don't know why my GX (and other people's Line 6 interfaces) have the same audio glitch problems on some Win7 64bit systems. Any other suggestions please as to what's causing this crackling glitchy sound?

It could be the way your computer's hardware handles audio drivers in the Windows 7 64-bit environment.  Our software drivers are designed for and do work on Windows 7 32/64 bit systems without experiencing these problems.  The only difference from computer to computer in handling these tasks are the hardware running the operating system to handle these tasks.

If you haven't done so already, please make sure that you have your system's power settings to always on, disable any power save features, disable ANY wireless adapters on the computer, and adjust your BIOS performance settings all detailed in the document you said you went over:
