Well for a start off your using it it now and finding it okay you say but then you have come on to a forum because it's not working for you.Can you explain to us what is so bad about Windows 11?
I'm using it right now and cannot find the first bad thing about it.
Sure some things are done differently, but that's all I've noticed.
Because he's trying to use a cheap audio interface from 2008 on an operating system 13 years newer.Well for a start off your using it it now and finding it okay you say but then you have come on to a forum because it's not working for you.
So cosmetic, like I said.One of the first things most people notice about an operating system is the way it looks when it is first turned on. WinXP gave us pretty music and a nice country view when switched on. Vista, Win 7 took us back to Windows 95 and Windows 2000. Windows 10 didn't do much but the icons are pretty unlike Win 11 which has bland boring icons. Okay that's flim flam really but it is all true. Once you get past the operating system everything is the same no matter what you use.
It's the drivers. I sometimes get that problem on some of my audio interfaces even designed for newer OS. My recording laptop runs W10 and I sometimes get distorted audio issues with a Focusrite Gen 3. A reboot or relaunch of Reaper usually clears it up, but it's how the driver is handling the audio pipeline. I've had this issue as far back as the SB 16.It also could be the way windows 11 handles things and also due to having e and p cores in the processor.
Hi Ikonix360, Your right. It is definately change most of us hate. My personal favorite was Windows 7 and 10. I had problems with Windows Xp. I experimented a little with Vista but not enough to say werther or not I liked it. I thought Windows 98 was a decent operatng system but you had to be careful of threats because it wasn't as secure as the newer OS. I personally feel as though Microsoft is forcing us to upgrade because they stop supporting an operating system after a few years when there is nothing really wrong with the previous operating systems. I feel we are wasting perfectly good operating systems because microsoft stopped supporting them and its sad that Windows 10 support will eventually end and we will be stuck using crappy Windows 11. Its just not fair dammit. Older operatig systems trully can be made secure with good quality firewalls and other security software. If microsoft would support all operating systems, there would be more options and work arounds to support compatibility issues.It's change they hate.
I noticed the same problem with USB devices not working in newer OS versions. It is possible that the USB version is different on a newer version of Windows from the USB version of the previous Windows version. I accessed device manager and noticed that the previous USB version was 2.0 on the older OS and the newer USB version was 3.0 on the Windows 10. That may have something to do with USB devices not working as expected. Many of the older camera devices and printers are not compatible with Operating systems with new USB versions.I'll give a proper answer when I get home from work (cannot access this site from work), but for now I'll give a brief answer before work.
I suspect windows 11 is different enough to where drivers that worked fine in 10 just won't work 100%.
Also far as I know it only does it with fortnite running.
