1675Re: Bad audio with CW Skimmer trial
- Jan 5, 2010CW Skimmer is known to have problems with the DSP audio when using MME. To be fair, the CW Skimmer 1.4 Help lists as a prerequisite:
"Sound card: a stereo sound card that supports the 48 kHz sampling rate or higher, and has a valid WDM driver"
I have a Signalink USB that I use with an FT-817 which suffers from this due to the generic USB sound driver from Microsoft not supporting WDM. My motherboard's onboard "soundcard" and a Delta 44 soundcard I have installed both work fine with WDM.

Waterfall halts for a second or so every minute or two. Using MME driver. Tried the WDM option in Cw Skimmer set-up byt get an error if I try that.
