Same problem here. I've installed it but can't access it. There's no taskbar icon to click on like it shows in the manual, and when I go to the installation folder there's no .exe to run, (except uninstall.exe).
How do you access it??
I've un/re-installed, rebooted, etc., This is on a PC I built with a PC-Chips MB, running XP Pro, SP3.
to: brotherjohn I think that you are just bad tempered teenage WoW-idiot . If several people ask the same question - there is a problem in manual. to: moderator I ran itno the same problem - it is not obvious which software is ASIo aware. Would be nice if someone post this info. Looks like USB market picking up, I guess your driver will have a wide audince, would be nice to make it a bit more friendly. And you page cna not be accesed as of now:(
ASIO4ALL will become available as an ASIO driver option in your ASIO aware audio application. The manual that came with your ASIO4ALL installation explains this in some more detail.
Thank you for your work with this product. Could you please tell us specifically how to get ASIO4ALL to be recognized by WinAmp? As you probably know, WinAmp binds its output streams using output plug-ins which are dll's named with the prefix "output_". The installation of ASIO4ALL v 2.9 creates asio4all.dll and a4apanel.exe, which are not recognized as plug-ins by WinAmp. Is there some other way for WinAmp to be "ASIO-capable" other than via its output plug-in format? Or, said another way, how can we get WinAmp to initialize the ASIO4ALL driver?
Let me see if I can clearly explain how ASIO drivers work. For one thing, the word driver is key. It's NOT a program that executes, it's a particular driver that the electronics in your computer that produce sounds use. It's different that the regular driver your sound card uses. Think of it as beefed up drivers that take away a lot of the latency (delay) caused by the processes that normally happen for a computer to produce a sound. In the case of, say, hooking up a midi keyboard to your computer and using it to drive software that emulates a synthesizer, it helps IF your sound card CAN INDEED use ASIO drivers because this takes away a lot of the delay one can hear when one pushes down on a key on the keyboard. In my case, I have the software Moog Modular V, which is a Modular Moog emulator, and I have a Novation Remote keyboard hooked up. When I start the Moog Modular software, in IT'S preferences are sound options. I can pick which sound card to use ( I have two in this computer) and it now gives me the option of using either DirectX or ASIO for the audio protocol. If I choose DirectX, then either sound cards show up. If I choose ASIO, then only my M-Audio card shows up because it is the only card that came with ASIO drivers. I can choose to use the ASIO drivers with that card, or not. What chooses whether or not to use the ASIO drivers is the application that is calling on the sound card, in this case, my Moog Modular V software. I got the ASIO drivers from M-Audio, because they offer them as an addition to the driver package in their latest drivers for my particular card. Not all sound card makers offer ASIO, nor are all sound cards able to utilize ASIO drivers. There is a program called ASIO4ALL, and I tried it once, but it did not work well, caused a lot of noise, so I got rid of it. That particular program, ASIO4ALL may have some sort of app that one can start up to adjust settings, and I think I remember that it does, but I don't recommend using the program. I had a bad experience with it. Others may have found it works great in their situation, but not for me.
So, to repeat, ASIO drivers themselves are just that....drivers. ASIO is a protocol, not a program. There may be programs, such as ASIO4ALL that have an executable, but this is just a program that is outside of ASIO drivers.
Whatever program you are using that generates sounds should have options within it's program for audio prefs. This is where you should find options to use ASIO drivers.
