    Default GA-EX58-UD5+F9/EMU1616M/Windows 7x64: DPC latency spikes & audio crackle

    http://imgur.com/cWqtE.png

    I have tried, with no success:

    * Updating the BIOS from F6 to F9
    * Disabling C1E
    * Disabling EIST
    * Disabling Hyperthreading
    * Returning to normal clock speeds (blech!)
    * Switching between IDE and AHCI
    * Turning off unused hardware like Firewire
    * Disabling Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver by installing it, running it, turning it on, turning it off, uninstalling it (although I had this problem even on a clean install)

    If you're interested in hearing what it sounds like:

    YouTube - EMU 1616M audio crackling problem & DPC latency spikes

    Changing the sample rate in PatchMix (or even in Windows playback devices -> advanced properties) can fix the problem temporarily in terms of what I am hearing and rebooting can fix the problem for 12-48 hours.

    Please, oh please, I need help :(

    System specs: Intel i7 920 3.0GHz, 12GB G.SKILL DDR3-1333 RAM, GTX 280, Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 retail, and of course, an EMU 1010 PCI+Microdock M.

    try closing easytune? its psu or gpu or both that the chokes are interfering with that causes the noise,if i disable c1e it stops the noise for me,you wont hear it when cpu is at load only when idle as the chokes throttle the cpu power causing the noise

    I don't have EasyTune installed :)

    I don't think it's the chokes that could make my speakers sound like that. I thought choke noise would come from the actual motherboard?

    Hi! Thank you! Thank you! The audio on this Gigabyte MA785-UDT3 mobo was also crackling, tearing, clicking and It Sucked! Turning off EasyTune 6 fixed that problem. I was going to reinstall Win7 x64 Pro all over again. The comment to try removing EasyTune 6 saved me a lot of hours....

    Thanks again!

    Ok.. actually I have a similar crackling w/ my EMU setup. It's really a ***** as it makes it impossible to mix, as the crackle escalates as you use FX. It doesn't seem to affect recording, as the tracks come out fine. Just the playback thru the EMU hardware is crackly.

    So I've been recording w/ the EMU, then taking all the tracks to another box to mix. I'd sure like to get this issue taken care of.

    The box is an eMachines 3.2GHz Celeron w/ XP Pro SP3 w 3G of ram, and a TB internal SATA drive for recorded data. And of course the EMU PCI card, and breakout box (1616m).

    Not really sure what the MOBO is.. it's an eMachine by Gateway; cheap, WalMart box, TBH. And I'm not near it right now. It's about 4 years old. Know that doesn't help, but I'll snag the model number and look up the mobo. I'll post that when I get it in my hands.

    Until then, I'll just cut as is, and sneakernet the raw tracks over to another box for mixdown.

    I'd point you to some tracks online but don't want to spam the forum. I run one as well for the place we play and the spamhounds drive me batty.

    Send a private msg to me if you want a link.

    That is most likely a locked BIOS Intel based board, so you aren't going to have any luck with these kind of BIOS settings, nor would they even be there anyway due to the P4 or lesser CPU.

    Best bet it update the BIOS to the latest, if that does not help you will need to do you mixing on a different setup

    I have the same problem (sounds click and DPC latency very high) here with my Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 with the F13w BIOS and Win7 64.

    The problem doesn't occur in Ubuntu 11.10. Also, if I downgrade to BIOS F12, the problem stops.

    But I would like to use the latest BIOS, since I noticed some speed improvements in boot and normal Windows use.

    Any suggestion to solve this?

    thanks

    did you try disabling c1e in advanced cpu features in the bios? if it doesnt stop it try disabling c3/c6 on the same bios page
