I used asio4all on an older machine and it's fantastic, but now I'm on Windows x64. Although Edirol provides 64-bit drivers they don't seem to be ASIO. Latency isn't bad, but it isn't good either -- about 96 ms.
Any chance of a 64-bit version? It's just a matter of pressing a few different buttons on the compiler right? (kidding)
Anyway, it would be great if that were on the horizon.
If written in assembler then maybe just some macro / switch directives need to be implemented. Dunno, been out of the assembly game for so long
Bought an EMU X-Station keyboard a few weeks back and the lag was mega with onboard sound. Was suggested by the shop to get a sound card that was ASIO compatible, but as far as I was concerned it didn't do what it said on the tin...so it went back. Wish I had come across this site before hand though!

Adding x64 support to ASIO4ALL means more than "just a re-compile", for the very reasons mentioned above: It is written in assembler.
Thus, the only sensible option is to rewrite the entire thing in C/C++, which isn't as bad as it sounds, because I've got tons of code floating around already from other projects of mine, which I could recycle.
But first things first - the priority one item today is to add full Vista support to the 32 bit version and only then we shall look into the CPP re-write
(which means aiming at upping the major version towards ASIO4ALL v3, new UI, new everything...)
I'd like to add my support for an x64 version of asio4all.
I totally understand though about the work required to port asm to 64-bit as I'm doing the same for parts of my app now. Still asio4all x64 would be a god send for anyone wanting to start using 64 bit hosts/vsts.
Hi Michael, I'd like to join "bradr". I just consider to update my system to 64bit and the most important thinks are good drivers for me. I'm using your ASIO4all since the version 2.4 and I'm absolutely satisfied with it. I'm working very often on my laptop and I need good driver for my build-in audio. I thank you for your great job you are doing for us all.
it seems that all the good things are not yet fully compatible with the 64 bit os (vista or xp both)... for example most of the m-audio interfaces like delta 66 etc dont come with 64 bit support... they have betas for it which dont exactly work the way u want em to work...
we have quad cores at our animation studio with 8 gbs of ram minimum... to fully utilize the capabilities of these machines we need x64 os.... and we were thinking of adding audio solutions to our studio... but guess what... asio aint available for 64 bit, m-audio wont work with it... whats left is x-fi cards which are not for professional sound editing and music creation but for professional game playing... we didnt buy these expensive pcs to play games on em
asio is the best... on my notebook ive been usin asio like forever... and now i even bought a core 2 duo with 6gb of ram and a 64 bit os... and suddenly i realize that my old softwares wont work... my old hardware wont work neither... i ordered a delta 66 card without doin the research first and realized that it wont work even... so the only rational rememdy for it all would be to shift to a dual boot... but i heard that asio isnt compatible with a core 2 duo intel even on a 32bit os... so im stuck!!!
i hope asio guys build a 64 bit driver soon enough... and m-audio people would do somethin about 64 systems too...
one last thing.... even in its current 32 bit form: ASIO ROCKS!!!!
Interesting fact this thing that works under some x64 Vistas.
In mine, the ASIO4ALL doesn't work. Although my sound card drivers appears in the panel, Sonar doesn't seem to bother.
Great work with the 32-bit versions, I didn't know about this drivers up to now, but they seem to be a huge hit!
I think 64 systems to be the next step in IT. The technology came a few year ago, and it's amazing what the whole IT industry thinks of it: "We don't care about the x64, we only care about the x86, which is the technology that makes us richer. But that's for now, because eventually everybody will use x64, in order to gain power.
My system works at least 30% faster in Vista x64 than it works in the x86 version. That's ridiculous. Nonsense to go back. So I step forward. Always.
Send us the 128-bit machines! And then the 256-bit! The sky is the limit!
EMU cards have had 64bit drivers for awhile. you can get the 0404 for as little as $89 now I believe, and with EMU cards there is no sample rate conversion, unlike all other creative products, due to an internal crystal with 24 bit i/o support up to 192 khz
This is like fresh air gulp to know that we'll have 64-bit support in closetime (hopefully)...can't say i can invest money in 64-bit version development, but i'm ready to help professionally. I'm web and graphics designer so feel free to contact me if you need any help...for example if you think about modern and serious interface design for new version.
Good luck and God bless you for this amazing tool that giving all us chance to win a battle with latency.
