Don't use software monitoring if you are using a Delta 1010 -- you can 
use the hardware itself for zero-latency monitoring. Using the 
envy24control tool, set the audio routing to Digital Mixer. Also, make 
sure you have hardware monitoring turned OFF everywhere else, it will 
mess up your envy24 settings.
