I have Win 7 Professional on HP Compaq Pressario. The installed soundcard is Realtek which does not support ASIO. I am a songwriter and need to input melodies into my music program but there is a huge latency problem that requires the use of ASIO drivers to reduce the latency but when I try to do this everything goes silent. I have tried various solutions and have come to the conclusion that perhaps my best solution is to install a second soundcard that does support ASIO. Could anyone point me in the right direction for purchasing a reasonably priced soundard that does what I need it to do without all the hassle of going in and changing settings and inputs and outputs each time I want to record something. Win 7 only allows one input and one output at a time. I'm getting to almost hate it when it comes to working with music. Why did they change this from XP which worked so flawlessly in this regard?
