RE: Anybody using a Tascam FW-1082... ASIO vs WDM ???
I have the FW-1884, which I presume to be similar.
I never had success with ASIO, and only use WDM. I had timing problems on my system with ASIO. Your system is undoubtedly entirely different...
Several years ago, I discovered I could remove clicks and pops, and hesitation, by disabling my Internet card before using SONAR.
Are you using the latest Tascam drivers?
