I recently got the Windows 10 Ver 21H1 Build 19043.1081.
All of a sudden when I try to playback any recording made I first have to switch from ‘WASAPI’ to Windows Direct, otherwise, I get a metallic noise in the audio and can’t make out what is going on. It is more than just feedback. I never had this problem prior to this update and am trying to find out what else I may have changed.
I did do a BIOS update but that does not have any Audio settings in it. ASUS ROG STRIX Z490e gaming Mo/Bo EVGA NU Audio card and Have made sure that All of the settings in “Sonic Studio” are turned "OFF’
