Are you running XP? If so, you may also wish to check your driver version. Currently, the most stable driver for the Delta series is 5.10.00.5057V3. M-Audio recommends this driver regardless of the service pack. If you do change drivers, M-Audio requires that you update drivers BEFORE you seat the PCI card. That is, you’ll need to remove the PCI card, update drivers, and then reseat the PCI card. These instructions are directly from my conversations with tech support. Here is a link to the driver; scroll to bottom:
I don’t know whether this is a driver issue, but I can tell you my experiences with M-Audio. I was using the latest driver listed on the website as well and had freezing issues (I’m running XP Pro). Tech Support told me to use the driver that I mentioned above, even though it wasn’t the latest one. I questioned the advice, given it seemed strange to roll back, but they assured me that M-Audio was recommending the driver as the most stable for most sytems. I installed the driver and enabled the ‘independent’ option. Problem solved.
I’m not recommending that you should change drivers to solve this particular issue. It’s just something to think about.
You’re quite welcome. And it’s strange that M-Audio continues to offer newer drivers but then tells folks to downgrade ???.
I said this before but it’s worth repeating or you’ll have a major headache. You must REMOVE your PCI card BEFORE you update drivers. Update the driver and then reinstall the card. Also, as Cad said, set the ‘independent’ option.
I don’t know whether this fix will work for you, but it did for me ;D
Please let us know the outcome. I do hope it solves your problem.
For what it’s worth, the next time I purchase a card I’ll be looking at something other than the M-Audio Delta series. There have been just too many reported problems with these cards related to the drivers, and there are other cards available without these problems. I really like the Marian cards. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for
It has solved part of the problem, however after a few days of continuous playing I am getting occasional ‘static’ style glitches at either the start or the end of some files. I have opened the files in an editor and all seems fine with the audio, it just appearing when playing through mAirlist.
Can someone just confirm which version of driver I should be running to get the best from a M-Audio Delta 1010LT card with mAirlist please?
Unless the very latest work well, I had to roll back to the XP SP2 (not SP3) variety. I’d have to check, the machine is at home. It has the Independent option available which makes the multi-channel behave. Haven’t tried latest to see if plays nice with latest BASS.
Yes, provided you’re running XP, this driver is the most stable for XP. (it’s listed under XP, SP2). I learned this after I had problems and tech support directed me to this driver.
Remembr that you must install the driver BEFORE you seat the card. Thus, to update you’ll need to run the new driver to uninstall the existing driver version. Then you run the driver again to install the driver WITHOUT the PCI card installed in the machine. AFTER the driver is installed, turn off the machine, install the PCI card, and then turn the machine on. The new card will be recognized and then the installation process will complete.
Also, glitches could be caused by other issues on your computer, perhaps unnecessary services are on (wireless, etc)??
