"Buzzing noise caused by drivers"
Overall: 1 out of 10 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Just going to say this The issues are with how NI decided to put source the driver to Thesycon which in turn has caused more issues with how stable it is. Others are reporting that the audio glitches out randomly an so does my unit. It really is sad that even realtec makes a better asio driver that doesn't buzz at me every 2 minutes.
