I'm not sure exactly where to post this thread. Here's the issue, I've used Amazing Slow Downer for learning cover tunes for a band I've worked with for several years. My set-up was this: bass into a Line 6 bass pod for a preamp sound, headphone jack out to "mic input" on the PC, open up the volume control mixer and adjust the level of my bass' input, open up ASD and start jamming through either earbuds or the 5.1 PC speaker system. Sounded fine. That PC was an eight or nine year old HP running XP Pro. Eventually the gal was taking a virtual dump and I needed to get a new machine. So I got a new HP desktop running Windows 8 Home 64bit. It has an internal sound card as did the old HP. And the latency is ridiculous using the analog audio mic input. So I got a Berhinger $25 USB to analog adaptor gizmo and while latency was better, it was still not in real time so to speak. I can't be the only guy out there doing this! How did you ASD dudes resolve this issue? Thanks !
