When I start Nuendo 2.2 or the new samplitude 8.0 demo I get a very subtle high pitched whine or audio constant ring, maybe up at at about 2k or so , not sure. But I do not get it opening the SAW studio demo. I am trying to find out which program to get. I'm not sure if it is getting on the recording track , or it's just an output thing. Is SAW better than the other 2 programs. I'm using a cheap M-Audio Fast-track USB device , I thought at first it was that. But when I fired up the Saw demo, it was not there at all. Is this an asio driver thing, or driver period problem, is something running that I should shut down in windows...please , please any light? Also using Gigabyte AMD 64 nvidia geforce 3 chipset, 1024 megs dual channel DDR 3200, main windows drive is 80GIG 7200 8mb buffer, other 2 drives are 120 gig 8mb buffer SATA , w/ Raid 0. System is very fast. Wnat to get Samplitude Sequoia and an RME 800 fireface....will I have the same high pitched whine? God I hope not, Imean this thing is not real loud or anything but if you turn the fader up higher you hear it more! I can still record and all!
