    Just solved a problem in the DAW concerning offline processing (track bouncing artifacts w/ plug-in applied), by moving back to ASIO drivers (from WDM.)

    What is it exactly about ASIO that makes it superior to WDM (or, is it)?

    I understand they both have their own issues. For me, I was originally running ASIO, but ran into a delay compensation problem (somewhat common to the platform.) The only fix was to go back to WDM, which I didn't want to do at the time...since both SONAR & my AI's mfg. recommended their use.

    Now I'm back (but wondering what to do if the old problem is still hangin' around.)

    So, what's the scoop on ASIO?
