Version 2.7 Beta 1

Changes since version 2.6:

  • Actually, there have been a number of minor changes to the audio engine over the last couple months the specifics of which I forgot.
  • ASIO4ALL no longer crashes (BSOD) if there is an ATI Rage Theater or similar device in the system. The WDM audio “drivers” shipped with these devices are simply ignored.
  • SBPCI 128 works now, albeit in 2in/2out mode only.
  • USB devices now generally listed by their names, where possible, instead of the generic USB audio. Helps if you have more than one.
  • Mono inputs are converted to stereo, such as to not confuse hosts that assume channels to always come in pairs. Helps with mono input devices, such as e.g. USB mics.
  • Gave the “Buffer Size” Slider in the control panel a logarithmic scale.
  • Default configuration changed so that e.g. Realtek HD Audio would not have its inputs disabled by default.
  • Experimental: Added a watchdog thread that is supposed to kick in should the host audio engine use all of the CPU due to e.g. denormals.
  • Last minute change: Thanks to Eugene Muzychenko (VAC) for pointing out an issue that could have led to “beyond logic” errors here and there! Helps at least with VAC – but who would’ve thought _that_…

    ASIO Buffer Size

    Use the slider to adjust the ASIO buffer size for the device currently highlighted. Smaller buffer size means lower latency. Once you hear crackles or audio becomes distorted, you need to increase the buffer size. ASIO buffer size directly relates to audio latency. Thus, you want to get a rather small value here. You may… more
