The buffer size of my ASIO-driven audio interface can't be changed

  • Live Versions: ALL
  • Operating System: Win

Symptom

The Buffer Size or Sample Rate in the Audio tab of Live's Preferences is grayed out and can't be adjusted.

Reason

Most ASIO sound card drivers only allow the Buffer Size or Sample Rate to be adjusted by using a proprietary control panel that is installed with the drivers.

Solution

  • Open Live's Preferences and go to the Audio tab
  • Click the 'Hardware Setup' button
  • Change the Buffer Size or Sample Rate in the control panel of the sound card
