    Default Onboad Audio Interface with 2.5 or 1 ms of latency, no distortion

    Last night, i managed to use my laptop onboard audio interface with 2.5 and 1 ms of latency, in Traktor Pro, with no distortion at all!!!! Did anyone manage to do this already???? Next step is to see if the spdif works fine too! If it does, no need for an external interface.

    Laptop: Asus G1S
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
    Drivers: ASIO4ALL
    Sample Rate: 96 kHz (it works fine it all the values)
    Buffer: 128 (F**K YEAH )

    mmm....I would not do that mate.

    The internal Sound Device is stock standard.

    So you pretty much trying to Nascar in a Prius.

    The External Sound Card will have much better converters.

    Also....there is an article around here by Fatlimey.....he had a good deal to say about latency and the way we look and work it.

    We are NOT actually doing it right.

    Yup, and all it takes is one hiccup and it'll sound fucking terrible.

    And just because you can doesn't mean you should. But it's your rep and they are your gigs, so rock out.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    explain to me what is the impact of the so called "better converters"

    better audio quality? the audio quality that i had with M-audio Audiophile Firewire is about the same as with the onboard interface.

    Yes but i have a similiar problem when i use the M-Audio Audiophile Firewire. For example, there are moments when im navigating in Traktor's browser menu with the browser buttons of the vci-100 and everytime i push one of those buttons, it distorts the audio! Really weird. So, i needed a second option..

    I remember when i used Windows Vista with Traktor. After about 15 minutes (with M-Audio Audiophile Firewire), the sounds becomes totally distorted and i don't know why!!!

    I wonder if anyone would really be able to tell the difference in sound quality between an external card (like the Audio4/8) and an internal card (built into mobo). Might be worth an article here.
