RAMdisk with Windows Server 2016/2019 - Configuration Guide
FelipeRolim posted a topic in SoftwareHello guys. After I spent a lot of time trying to make my dedicated computer work with RAMdisk, I finally managed to succeed in this endeavor. As I tried many different paths, I wrote down everything so that I had some "extra" information when I finally got it, and also to have a guide in case I had to do it again. Well, I didn't have to do it again, hehe, but I hope the information I wrote down as "definitive" in terms of functioning is actually correct and helpful to colleagues in the forum. As I am Brazilian and I wrote the text originally in Portuguese, I spent some time transcribing it into English, so that it is possible to share with colleagues of this forum. I think it's valid, because it really was very difficult to get it for the first time. For those who don't know, RAMdisk is one of the most high-performance methods for audiophiles in the world, and although I've never read anything about it in this forum and only have a personal friend who has tested before me, I've read a lot, a lot , much information in international scope, where it seems that the theme is more evolved. Reducing latency and high throughput is only a small part of the benefits. If that weren't enough, I've never heard any "original" setup, with SSD, SD card, M.2, or anything else, that delivers audio quality as good as RAMdisk. For me, it's the best, but what I don't know is if there are different RAM models that deliver different sonorities (Corsair vs. Kingston; Kingston vs. Crucial; Corsair vs. GSkill; e.g.). To make it easier for me and my colleagues, I created a PDF file that can be downloaded, because the text is large and I also attached some images to make the complicated parts more enlightening. Finally, I remind colleagues that although there are Windows software that makes RAMdisk easily, they only allow a very limited part of RAM to be defined as storage, and they don't allow the operating system itself to be installed or loaded on it. The guide I've tried to create effectively causes 100% of the operating system to go to RAM and run from it.

PC disk vs NAS
Mike48 posted a topic in Music ServersHi, I am looking for info & advice. I'm streaming hi-res audio across a home network (Ethernet) from my i7 Windows PC. The PC runs MinimServer, and at the receiving end, I have a Simaudio MiND. Every few days, I have what be latency problems . . . clicks (dropouts) through my Auralic Vega DAC. Am I likely to get better results by moving to a Synology NAS box? It seems to me that the problem COULD be the PC's being busy downloading email, updates, and so on. So that's the question, can moving to a NAS eliminate this as a potential source of the problem?
Xonar Essence STX - ASIO Settings Issue
Alan Armstrong posted a topic in General ForumHi, I am using a Xonar Essence STX audio card with the ASUS 188.8.131.526 driver. My question is what is the default latency set for the sound card output and also is it possible to adjust the ASIO, specifically latency, settings with this driver version? I cannot use an updated version of the driver because when I install it the software that I am using to play the sound (Psychtoolbox in Matlab) cannot recognize the ASIO component of my ASUS audio card and all the latency and defaultsamplerate numbers are set to 0. I know with the updated driver you can simply right click on the ASUS icon in the task bar and adjust the bit-depth and latency but with my driver version there is no option to adjust the ASIO settings using this method. I really appreciate any comments, Al
