Hi Jens,
I test with several sound cards. M-Audio, Creative Audigy, ASIO-for-all, and
generic motherboard driver. I've found the jitter at settings over 30-50ms
difficult for serious recording. Without ASIO drivers latency can be
100-200ms or more, which is very bad.
 ASIO at 5-10ms seems the best I can use on Windows without stutter, that
feels nice and responsive to me.

Best Regards,
