ASIO or MME : does it matter when exporting ?

Hi everyone

 

I'd like to work on a short film on Premiere Pro. I'll be using music I made, so I'll just drag and drop the wav.files on the timeline and make the cuts on the video so it is syncronized with the music. 
I've read some stuff about audio drivers, but I can't figure out if it is important for what I intend to do since I won't be recording any audio directly in Premiere. I have a RME Fireface soundcard so I guess it'd be better to work with ASIO but all in all I don't know if it really matters. What do you think ?

Even if I work with MME - I read the latency was more important with this driver -, will the music be desyncronized when I export the project ?

 

Thanks for your help !

The type of interface driver will not affect the export audio sync but it may affect the sync of the audio when you are editing. So you may fix it to look ok during the edit but it may look wrong when exporting. Do a simple test using a frame of the inbuilt bars and tone effect both in your editing timeline and on the exported file. If you are sending to YouTube it doesn't matter as I have never seen any material in sync on playback 🙂

Ahah, right! 

So, I tried what you say, and indeed, while the music is synchronized with the film while editing, when I export it is slightly desynced - something like 200 milliseconds. That's annoying, I tried with both MME and Asio. In the Audio Hardware parameters when I reduce the latency the audio is awful - sounds crushed both when editing and exported. 
Do you have an idea what I should do? 

Thanks for your help Richard
