I'm wondering are the most else audio interface drivers run much better performance than the Echo's one in ASIO.

I have an AudioFire 8 and alone it was fine. I added a second one which did introduce problems on my old computer, running under an aggregate device, but I have just switched computer and so far it seems fine.

What problems are you encountering?

I've always found Echo drivers to be excellent.

I have an Echo Audiofire 2 and I've never had a problem with the driver (although I haven't used it for a while now). Its always been rock solid and stable for me (on a mac).
