I have a dilemma that’s kind of related to this that someone smarter than me might know about.
I just set up my studio-making stuff on my work PC because my living situation just got a little cramped and I’m having to consolidate temporarily, and things are sounding extremely different through ASIO when I’m looking for low-latency instrument tracking. So when I mix appropriately, my renders are all coming out entirely different than they actually sound unless I flip back to non-ASIO methods of listening in Live. Even FL’s ASIO produces the ‘real’ sound, so the problem is obviously ASIO4ALL. But I still don’t understand why this would happen.
I’ve never had my DAW sound different before, but the difference is pretty extreme. Any ideas? I’ve messed with buffer size and just about every other setting within ASIO4ALL to no avail.
Also, tracking with FL’s ASIO (it works with live, thanks bro’s) produces way too much latency to pull off a basic rhythm riff, so that’s not even an option. DAW sounds, how do they work?
