I dont know if it is a known problem , besides that cracking noise (your mic preamp setting very high btw?), but that switching problem 48<->44.1 khz i had since windows 10 . Maybe this is related to 1820m and some mainboards and affects only the audiodock, where f.e. the 1010pci always shows a red dot in the patchmix left upper corner, the audiodock sometimes shows no red dot, seems the audiodock has a lost connection. But this happens only when i try to switch under windows to 44.1 khz. For me there is no need to switch to 44.1 khz under windows because every program works with 48 khz, even games are working with that . And for that reason i said, try to load a new 48khz patchmix session from the patchmix load menu, not a saved or personally created, if you get an error saying "Patchmix error - you do appear to have insufficient ...bla bla bla". A weird behavior sometimes occurs , i have to load a new 48 khz patchmix session twice (!), the first load sometimes gets ignored from the patchmix but the second does it, so it is very tricky to judge if it is working or not.lestra wrote: ↑Wed Mar 25, 2020 2:02 amThank you so much for this solution. I have EMU 1820M soundcard and this works for me on Windows 10 64bit but there is one problem so far. When Windows started and soundcard loaded everything works but I get audio with some cracking noise and little bit of distortion. I listen on BayerDynamic DT 770 Pro headphones and I am sure there is noise and distortion. My workaround is like this: Go to PatcMix app/Sample rate settings and temporary switch from 48khz to 44,1khz. Result is there is no sound at all but when I switch back to 48khz and load preset of the patchmix again, audio become nice and clear, without any cracking noise or distortion.
Is this a known problem and is there better fix than mine?
Another interesting thing i found out, you can extract the content of the Emu driver or Emu patchmix .exe files with 7zip file archiver and you can now look for certain dll's and additionally there is a driver uninstaller from creative, see that attached picture. Maybe this is of help to somebody.
