WaveIn latency below 50 ms?

Feb 5, 2011 at 9:10 PM


I am trying to get a latency around 10-25 ms using WaveIn, but when I get below 50 ms the sound quality starts to decrease. Is a latency below 50 posible at all?


Thank you

it's hard to get low latency with WaveIn. Set the number of buffers to 2, which should help a little.

Would I need to use ASIO then? I have only seen examples of ASIO out in NAudio. Is there support for ASIO In?

to be honest, for real low latency code I would use C/C++ rather than a garbage collected language. ASIO support in NAUdio is very weak. Wasapi might be a better bet if you can do without Windows XP support.
