I installed a new motherboard and am getting this error now: ASIOCreateBuffers returned error code: Hardware Malfunction

How to diagnose?

My other DAWs recognize the ASIO driver (Arturia Audiofuse) and seem to operate correctly. Any help in diagnosing this would be appreciated.

Also, the Windows WASAPI driver worked ok, but I don't know whether there is a significant performance/latency difference with that approach.


Thanks to Bitwig support I was finally able to fix this.. So in case this is helpful to anyone in the future, the issue was choosing the Audio Sample rate myself instead of keeping it at Auto. They also suggested choosing a sample size with a multiple of 8 (for me that just defaulted to 128 samples when I chose a 44.1 hz sample rate and I was good to go finally)
