ux2 Win7: clicks,pops, then freezes with sustained noise
by Tooker on 2010-04-25 10:36:31.0390

Using Riffworks and Gearbox, I gets lots of clicks, pops, and stutters occurring no matter what I set ASIO to.

Eventually, the software freezes and I get a burst of sustained noise until ux2 is unplugged.

I've browsed the forums for solutions.

  • Drivers updated with  Monkey.
  • The DPC latency checker says machine should be able to  handle without dropouts or problems. So no need for PCI usb to be added right?

Please advise. Thank you for your attention.

Thanks, that was some extensive resource navigation. I implemented most of the above prescribed procedures with the exception of messing with the BIOS settings.  While I didn't get a fix, I did get familiar with adjusting various performance settings on Win 7. For example, I stumbled onto the program compatibility options, "run programs made for previous versions of Windows." In desperation, I switched the Line6 programs to run with Win XP settings; but even this didn't do the trick! 

Obviously, the onus is on Windows 7, seeing how other users have experienced the same problems. I did test this gear on other pcs, with other Win OSs; and it worked. Would be great if Line 6 support found a way to upstage microsoft with a fix. Awesome Apps that work on riddled Operating Systems - Imagine that!  Keep plugging away. Thanks for your attention.
