AMIII Digital Input Behavior

TXT:: I discovered something interesting recently with the AMIII card and Reason and the Digi 5.01 drivers. If you have an external digital clock source connected to the S/PDIF inputs, set the Digidesign control panels to synchronize to the digital inputs, and the Reason CPU usage drops dramatically when set to Sound Manager Output. It rivals the AMIII ASIO drivers, and the latency is only 11ms rather than 87ms with the ASIO drivers. This is being done under MacOS 9.0.4 (I still haven’t upgraded yet).
