24-bit in exclusive mode

Post by cnlw » Fri Aug 31, 2012 11:48 am

I have just purchased Mixcraft Pro Studio. In playing around with with reducing the latency in preferences I received a message that it could not get exclusive use of the sound card. When looking at the sound card control panel it would support 16 bit and 24 bit but not 32 bit. Mixcraft appears to support 16 bit and 32 bit but not 24 bit. Exclusive access was granted when the rate on Mixcraft was reduced to 16 bit. Is there some way for Mixcraft to support 24 bit in exclusive mode?

Mixcraft just displays the options that your sound device's driver offers. If your sound device doesn't have a 24-bit option in exclusive mode, Mixcraft won't show that option. Check with the sound device's manufacturer to see if there are any updated drivers.

What kind of sound device are you using? The ultimate solution is to get a sound device that comes with its own ASIO drivers.
