Asio settings ?

Post by Dahlberg » 21 Nov 2020 17:25

I wonder if asio buffer size settings have any influence on measurements ? I have had mine in "safe mode/512 samples" but
tried reducing it down to the lowest wish is 8 samples and music is still playing just fine. Not tried any measurements yet.

Very small Asio buffers are only required with realtime applications. If not necessary then greater sizes will reduce the CPU load.
Stay well tuned

I would figure measuring as a real time application, that's why I'm asking.

The sound device is always measuring in real-time. The buffer size just defines how many samples are collected before transferring the data to the CPU.
So the buffer creates a delay between input and output (of processed input data). With speaker measurement the input data are not sent to output again.

So the answer would be no then. :) Thanks
