  • 64 bit PCIe audio card for XP64 running VI

    I was wondering what audio card options are available that have XP64 drivers. Has anyone had experience with the RME PCIe sound cards?

    I'm using a Multiface II. However, I'm using the PCI slot, not the PCIe. It is working fine.

    Can a PCI card work in a PCIx slot?

  • I use a MOTU 2408 mk III PCI-e and it works very well.

    I can't remember but I actually think that mine is in a PCI-X slot. let me check tomorrow.

    I can't recommend anything MOTU for XP64. I'm certainly not impressed with their Micro Lite drivers, and have no reason to expect that their audio drivers are any better.

    Why what, if that was aimed in my direction?

    I have:

    MOTU  2408 mk3

    a MOTU Traveler

    a MOTU MIDI XT Express

    and they work very fine.

    So why?

    I can only tell my own experiences. I have only ever owned two pieces of MOTU kit. The first, a MIDI timepiece didn't work properly. The second, the Micro Lite has many problems. I also know that MOTU support is much more OSX orientated than XP64 or Vista, so unless I had actually used a device in XP64, I wouldn't recommend them.

    The three main things that need to be tested for an audio device are:

    1. That the drivers are not flaky and work at low latencies.
    2. That any virtual mixer included works properly in a 64bit environment.
    3. That when using more than 4Gb RAM, the virtual mixer doesn't cause problems.

    I have tested non of the above, so I can't recommend MOTU. If you have tested all of this, then you can recommend it.
