    I had crackling/static issues with my old Win 7 computer, even when I moved to my new F'rite AI. Not sure if it was motherboard or the hard drive.

    I bet the static was due to trying to push the buffer too low, don't get hung up on low buffer size mine is set an forgotten about at 512 on a UAD Apollo. Use direct monitoring and you will never have to worry about latency.

    Switch to Win 10 windows 7 cant use above 3.4gb of ram so your stash of ram is wasted.

    TBH you shouldn't notice 1ms roundtrip latency, its possible as others have said you are still getting some signal from the DAW

    You DO have to worry about latency if you want to play a softsynth or use computer effects.

    The ram limit is about the OS bit count. W10.W7, 32 bit are ram restricted but any 64 bit OS* can use an almost infinite amount but it is usually limited in the MOBO.

    I have an HP W7 laptop 64 with 8G and a W7 desktop 64 with 6G of ram.

    *There was an XP 64 but it was pretty ***t by all accounts!

    Dave.

    I use bucket loads of VST effects and use both Kontact and MPC and have zero issues with latency at 512.

    I take your point about 64bit OS I hadnt realised.

    Then you cannot be using Direct (aka Zero Latency) Monitoring. Another clue is the 512 samples? Ain't none if you just 'go in and out of the AI" !

    Sure you are not using DSP modules?

    I use some UAD modules but also use Waves in Protools with Low Latency enabled round trip latency is less than 3 milliseconds. I notice if I monitor from the DAW but not from the interface even with fully loaded track.

    I appear to have fixed my latency problems on the M-Audio. What I did.
    1. Disabled some power saving options in the bios.
    2. Disabled bluetooth and wifi.
    3. Downloaded a program called Systemcare and I turned on economy mode which stopped around 65 processes.
    I presume there's a driver conflicting with it. Regardless I fixed the problem.

    Ps. The static on the scarlett was not from low numbers. I didn't get big pops/skips. It was a super loud noise floor. The M-audio is super clean.
