P.S. AudioBox 44VSL user, here.
Are you sure that's the case? My impression was, once you fire up your DAW, the ASIO drivers kick in, bypassing any Windows settings, which only control the WDM drivers for the device. From what I've read elsewhere, the general consensus is that it's up to the manufacturer to implement this correctly in the ASIO drivers. However, on the ASIO4ALL forum, I've read that it's the actual hardware that has to be compatible (not sure about this one, maybe it's just an excuse for them not to implement it in their drivers).
Either way, anyone with a Scarlett 2i2 and Windows 7, could you please confirm?
