Help me set up Nuendo! (Pic included)

    When I call up the Multimedia Setup for Nuendo 3, I get this screen:

    I don't understand all the numbers, and I can change some of the figures in there (Audio Buffers, Buffer Size (Samples), Offset Samples, Audio Channels)

    I don't use the M-Audio Fast Track like it says, I have the M-Audio Firewire, and I'm concerned that Nuendo's setup doesn't have the same data as my Firewire control interface (44.1 kHz, 64 buffer size)

    If I try to change the buffer size down to 64 it raises it to 512 and then the test fails. If I change any of the numbers around to anything other than what is listed the test fails. I just want to optimize this because I know for certain that my audio interface has less than 4ms latency, and in Nuendo my latency is more than a second.

    Can someone help me optimize this?

    That thing is only used when you are using the generic ASIO driver (selected within Nuendo). Youy should be using a hardware specific ASIO driver. Change it to that. Then, your M-Audio control panel with allow you to set the buffer size.

    David's right... Go to hardware configuration and change Asio Multimedia driver to M-audio Firewire Asio driver. I personally use FW 1814 with Nuendo and it's working well with this!!

    Another thing I notice on your, included, screen-shot is a "help" button. When you install a new piece of software, just going to each setup page and pressing the "help" button will generally offer a world of info on how to set it up yourself - often more, better, different info than you'll get even reading the, possibly(Likely?) outdated, printed manual.........


    BTW: Long as we're here... Can someone tell me(Again! I forget, it's late.) why some of the forum pages are "overextending" the screen(Got to scroll to see it all.)? Maybe I should just click the "help" button, ey???

    Teddy, this page is 'overextending' due to the excessive size of our non-manual-reading friend's graphic.

    Thankyou, David!

    I asked because it's happened a couple of times, recently... and now that I think about it, the other one I can recall had a picture... Of course, if the forum automatically "squished" pic or graphic(At least just horizontally), to conform to the page width, the graphics would be, ahh... "squished", ey?

    Smart forum!

    I'm sure that some HTML could be written to scale large graphics. Of course, the interpolation would look horrible, but that's why people should keep their images to about 700 px max.

    I'll look into that scaling idea...
