Windows Audio Endpoint Builder is on automatic startup in my system configuration. I am using windows 7 and all my audio is routed to my Tascam us 1800 interface via USB, is Windows Audio Endpoint Builder necessary?

Although your TASCAM interface is USB, it is still an audio device, and is thus dependent on the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder. Endpoints are anywhere audio begins or ends - speakers, microphones, USB audio interfaces, etc, and the Endpoint Builder detects all the endpoints and nicely organizes them for the Windows Audio service. Without the endpoints built, Windows Audio service doesn't know where to get sound from and where to send sound, so sound just doesn't work.

You will need to leave Windows Audio Endpoint Builder enabled for your audio to route properly.
