Yeah that's about what I have noticed too, (On "some systems" things run 99.9% crash proof.. but on others it can be a nightmare if you don't tweak the settings just right...
From most of all my tests, it seems to run best on Laptops, or older PC's and hardware that are running XP.
I guess the main issues over all I have seen so far are with the newer systems running the new 64bit AMD CPU's, and strange things can happen depending on the brands or configuration of multiple sound cards.
I heard that M-Audio http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Delta66-main.html makes a "ALL IN ONE PCI dual sound card" that costs around $150+ and has 4 balanced or unbalanced outputs! 1-2 for left and right card one, and 3-4 for left and right card two!... I want to get this card and see if it actually does and works like they say it does. *If so, then ALL of our dual sound card troubles will be gone.. *atleast for PC's, I'm sure they make a USB version, just not sure. I'll let you know when I get it and test it...
So far from what I have tested and seen, the best and most reliable, stable way to run dual sound cards "these days" on NEW PC's is to use 2 PCI cards made by different companies... *NOTE: any and ALL creative sound blaster cards used to be great back in the day, but these days they seem to be causing many people major problems running them together on newer machines to use with mixing software of ALL types... *I built a test machine with dual creative sound blaster live 24bit cards and once DJS tried to use them both to do a mix the audio on both cards crashed so bad that it even crashed the machine to a BSOD with un-repairable errors to the point of having to reformat the system and reload everything to try again... This is obviasly a Creative and or XP bug and "not" DJS. Because I did the same thing one more time, but this time left only 1 blaster live in the system and used Turtle Beach 24bit card as the second card, and eveything works perfect.
I've been testing and testing this theory on many different PC's and Laptops, and it seems that things allways run much better or perfect using different brands of cards, or even adding a USB card I guess it's just something with these newer Chipsets, Motherboards, Bios settings, sound and video drivers, DirectX, etc... *and ofcourse, Micro$oft!..
