"The ASIO driver model essentially
provides a software pipe straight to the card's audio
sub-system", said Andrew Elder, Director of Software
Engineering for AudioScience. "As Microsoft has added more

has become increasingly popular in the production environment.
AudioScience has been able to add the ASIO interface to its WDM,
Wave and Combo drivers without compromising performance. Audio
devices can even be shared amongst the drivers by different
applications, giving users ultimate flexibility."
The ASIO driver interface is implemented as an add-on to the
AudioScience Windows WAVE, WDM and Combo drivers and will work
for all AudioScience 5000 and 6000 series audio
adapters. It is scheduled to be released with driver 3.02.
