I got a new Asus Xonar Essence One (Muses edition). It's a DAC with ASIO integrated, so I thought this would be better than my onboard sound card with ASIO4ALL.
Now the input delay of the Essence One is 20ms and I cannot set it lower in the ASIO settings (it is greyed out).
ASIO4ALL gets easily 8ms input latency. But why and how?
The lowest Device Block Size for the Essence One is 176 samples.
Is the device not capable of getting lower input latency? Is it because the signal has to travel from my midi keyboard to the pc and then to the dac? Is there any solution to this?
