USB Soundcard not playing short sounds

Hi guys,

 

So, I have a little problem with my USB-Sound device. I've got a Soundcraft Notepad-5 connected via USB to my Windows 10 computer. Overall I am very happy with this device, except for one thing.

If I play for example a short note in my DAW, the soundcard won't let me hear it. When I play the same note over and over again it will eventually pick up. To me it seems like it thinks that that one sound isn't worth playing through my speakers or something.. very weird indeed! Playing music etc. works perfectly fine..

 

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? It seems very odd to me, and I can't find anything on the internet about it since it is a fairly new device. I also have installed the latest drivers for it. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your quick response! Unfortunately that did not fix the problem. :(

It almost seems like some kind of 'feature'. I listened closely and if I play a kick repeatedly it slowly fades in. Sometimes only on the left or right speaker before it finally plays normally.

It could be some power management "feature" interfering. Look in the control panel and device manager, and disable any power saving features. Also set the overall "power profile" to performance rather than "balanced" which seems to be the default.
