It's not looking good is it? Maybe no one knows! I was using ASIO with a creative soundcard set to pass through on my old laptop, but the new one won't accept the pmcia card so I'm using a usb to spdif/optical converter which means that I've not got any soundcard drivers that will accept ASIO. This in turn meant I had to install ASIO for all which works OK, but then seems to have issues with some files which causes MM to freeze. So I decided to give wasapi a go, but I'm not convinced that it's giving me bitperfect out. I might give kernel streaming a go, but that Steve Monks page seems to be down now.
I followed all the instructions here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=62665
But I'd still like to know how come both the windows and MM volume controls still work? I thought a bitperfect output bypassed all system processes? And yes, I also want to make the most of my 24/96 files ...
