[Solved] Win7 WaveRT available but not working (worked previously)

Postby SteTommo » Sat Feb 17, 2018 2:29 pm

The first time I installed Pianissimo it just worked perfectly straight out the box. Since then I've tried it on many systems and I just can't get it to work without loads of lag.

I now know when it worked it was running on Win7 using WaveRT. But the problem is I have a load of different PCs and lots of PC bits. The first time I set it up was just a random PC and it was just to test it, I had no idea I wouldn't be able to get it to work again and I don't remember the exact spec of the PC.

Here's what I do remember, if anyone can piece this together and point me in the right direction to building a PC that it will run properly using WaveRT. (I have tried ASIO but this doesnt work without lag).

I'm fairly sure the PC was running Win7 Home Premium 32bit. I remember trying it later on a similar PC with Win7 Ultimate 64bit and WaveRT was greyed out.

I've now built another PC similar to the first with Win7 Home 32bit and WaveRT is there but produces no sound.

I don't even know for sure what sound card I was using when it worked, I was pretty sure it was a Soundblaster Live! (SB0100) but now I can't seem to find any Win7 drivers for it, so it might have been an Audigy SE (SB0570).

I can put any OS on the system, so please let me know what's the best combo of OS/Soundcard/Drivers to use to get this working again!

From what I can see none of the SoundBlasters support WaveRT, or at least the ones I've tried. However the Realtek ALC888 and ALC898 onboard sound chips do and I have one o these on my motherboard. So I enabled it in BIOS, problem solved.
