New install
 
I just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 64 bit and hearing all sorts of issues with audio. I have 8 gig of ram, quad core 2.83 GHz processor using a Line 6 Pod HD for my audio interface and an Akai mpk49 keyboard. Everything worked perfect in XP and in Win 7 it's useless. Any ideas?

Really depends on what the issues are, can you give some detail?

There are several guides to optimizing windows 7 for audio. Google it and try some of the suggestions that are high impact for starters. I know Presonus has a pretty good one and I thought PH had one as well. Also try uninstalling and reinstalling your audio interface drivers if the first item doesn't help.

I keep having the audio cut out for a split second and pops and clicks. I did reinstall the audio driver and didn't help. I've played around with the buffers and that helped some but not 100%.

Oddly enough, I was just reading this morning that Line 6 finally updated their win7 driver WAY later than they should have and that the previous one was messed up - did you check their site for updates?

I installed them today but I will check and see if maybe they have updated today. Thanks!

Figured out the issue. Thanks to another user suggesting disabling the network card. That took care of the issue. But I still wonder why it didn't cause the issue in XP?

Hard to say, but I do remember having a similar problem with Record a while back that affected a line 6 related file. No clue, but glad it's all worked out :)

There's been some pretty hefty changes to the way networking is handled in Windows 7 compared to XP. For the most part the changes are massive improvements but occasionally your audio drivers don't play nice with it. Usually it's when you're using onboard integrated networking (like your WiFi), but rarely an actual networking card.

Perhaps see if finding the latest drivers for your networking card via the manufacturer's website may help? Either way - congrats on fixing your issue!
