When I normally use FL Studio, I use my speakers, and I use the "ASIO4ALLv2" input for my speakers, and I get perfect clear audio without any stutters or lag occurring. But when I plug in my headphones, the only input that works with the headphones is "Headphones High Definition Audio Drive"
But as soon as I plug in my headphones and select my headphone input in FL Studio, the audio starts to skip around like crazy and lag. So what the hell can I do? Am I going to have to be forced to use my speakers to produce?
Hopefully I'm on the ball with this one... Here it goes:
Okay so basically your headphones are acting as the audio interface for FL Studio. Ideally, you want to use the ASIO4ALL and plug headphones into your COMPUTER'S input so that way you can get significantly less lag.
In the case of the USB headphones or whatever you are using, it's utilizing the power of the "soundcard" within the actual headphones themselves, which you can't re-configure to use something like ASIO4ALL...
You might want to invest in headphones that connect via 1/4" or even 1/8" inputs so you can make use of ASIO4ALL or any other external audio interfaces you may acquire in the future.
Also someone mentioned it earlier, you should use speakers if you have good monitoring speakers. Headphones are used in the studio mostly for reference.
