I had no difficulties under Win10 with any audio software including Sony
Sound Forge with my RME Multiface audio interface or any of the built in
audio adapters on any of my 5 PC's. It didn't matter if I did an 'upgrade'
to Win10 from Win7 or completely clean install of Win10, everything worked
as it should. That said, I was part of the beta test program for Win10, and
during beta test many months ago there were various driver issues. I
haven't seen any audio driver issues with the released version of Win10
with anything I have. YMMV of course..
