Reiterating this.
And make sure you have the latest version for either plugin.

sawg, ME has no probs on DS output, at least as far as I have seen. Also it's better for my puter because the WAVs are amplified way too much, but with DS out, I can use Winamp's volume control

Sure, but DS uses more cpu processing than waveout in 98/me/whatever 9x thing.

I use Waveout almost all the time. I only use directsound when i need fast response time (when checking EQ settings or playing with DSP/Effects plugins).

From Peter's little FAQ
Q: What's the difference between waveOut and DirectSound ?
A: I expressed my thoughts here. If you have your own experience, start a new thread and maybe we'll compile a more complete doc.
