Re: Having to restart the audio engine regularly

I think I figured it out. I have a wireless ON/Off switch that turns off the lights and a number of other pieces of gear, and I usually turn it off at night. Well one of the things it turns off is my UMC interface! It can be USB powered or powered from an external power brick. Apparently having the ...

Re: Having to restart the audio engine regularly

Well, unfortunately, I'm still having the same problem. I left the PC on overnight (as I usually do), and had nothing running at all. Launched an audio app just now, no sound. Brought up Voicemeeter, and the "UMC ASIO Driver" text under "HARDWARE OUT" was red and blinking. What in the world might be...

Re: Compressor or VST effects with Voicemeeter

Ah, so Audibility only works on the two hardware input channels? Rats. I was looking for something that would compress the Virtual input. What I'm trying to do is compensate for the sometimes large volume levels of different speakers on Zoom/Skype/Teams calls. I often find myself continually riding ...

Compressor or VST effects with Voicemeeter

Is the Compressor feature only available with Potato? The basic Voicemeeter more than meets my needs, but I'd really like to have a compressor. Or is it possible to use a VST plugin with Voicemeeter or Banana (which is still more features than I need, but...)

Re: Having to restart the audio engine regularly

The Behringer driver defaults to 512 samples at a rate of 44,100hz, so I'll leave that as-is. One thing I noticed, before using ASIO, there was a very short delay between speaking into the mic and hearing it in the speakers. With the ASIO driver, that's gone! I'll report back in the next few days (I...

Re: Having to restart the audio engine regularly

Yes, that may turn out to be very helpful! I was NOT using ASIO, so I just selected that. We'll see if that improves things. My Behringer interface has its own ASIO driver, which is the one I selected. If that still turns out to be problematic, do you think I should install ASIO4ALL? I've used it be...

Having to restart the audio engine regularly

Hi. I just installed Voicemeeter last week, and it's great! I've found, however, that frequently I lose sound altogether(bar graph meters on VoiceMeeter are moving, but nothing is coming out), and doing a Restart Audio Engine fixes it. What might be causing that? I have VoiceMeeter set as my System ...
