I recently fitted a new soundcard, an ASUS Zonar D1, to replace my onboard sub-standard Realtek sound. I now have a problem, which happens with all my dispos and three different reverb VSTs. Using JackPortAudio-ASIO-Reverberate, if the wet and or dry settings are set as for a cathedral reverb, e.g. I use a Caen IR for one of my dispos, then I am getting a twanging/stuttering sound every few seconds. This doesnt appear to be relative to the number of ranks used in relation to the rate at which it occurs, although its volume increases with ranks. With a very short reverb setting it's inaudible to my ears, or its not occuring, but as the wetness and/or dryness is increased then I get more stuttering. I have killed everything, I think, in the soundcards mixer except Wave output. I don't get any problems with the cards own environment settings, which I don't find particularly suitable!
I have attached a pic of the dialogue box which when I start JackPortaudio now has two extra lines at the bottom to what I used to have with the onboard sound. Is this correct?
Also, is it possible to integrate the IR into the soundcards environment settings somehow?
P.S. Sven, would it be possible to attach small sound files to demonstrate what mailers are trying to verbally describe?
What is the command that you use to start the Jack Audio Connection Server (or are you just using the default JackPortAudio)? I know that the ASUS Xonar series has ASIO v2 drivers, but a good friend who has one of their higher-end varieties actually found the ASIO4ALL v10 driver to be superior regarding latency (!).
As far as I know it won't be possible to integrate the IRs into the soundcard's environment settings, but I don't know enough to really say...

I had this set up working properly with the onboard sound, all I have done is disable it and fitted a PCI soundcard.
I have just played about with the settings for about 3 hours. Must have got a wrong one somewhere, it's now working correctly.
