ASIO 4 All

For any producer out there using a soundcard without ASIO channels built in, ASIO 4 ALL offers you quite an upgrade to your existing onboard cards. Keep an eye on your latency settings to reduce buffer overrun as it does get the CPU a little warm. Great algorithms, check it out.

What started as a bedroom project in early 2003 – for the sole purpose to get ASIO support for the AC97 on my laptop – has become ASIO4ALL – the universal ASIO driver for WDM audio.

Honestly, I did not expect this project to become as popular as it has become (but this popularity does not particularly dissapoint me either 😉

ASIO4ALL is a hardware independent low latency ASIO driver for WDM audio devices. It uses WDM Kernel-Streaming and sometimes even more sophisticated methods to achieve its objectives.

Oh yeah, and it’s free.
