Title: Download ASIO for foobar here
Post by: kaiwei on 2003-03-01 06:08:08
foo_output_asio (http://www.aikis.or.jp/~otachan/foo_output_asio.html)

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before but here it is. It's from the same guy who did ASIO for winamp.

Can anyone do a simple test?
http://www.aikis.or.jp/~otachan/foo_output...ut_asio_005.zip (http://www.aikis.or.jp/~otachan/foo_output_asio_005.zip)

Install it and select ASIO as output.
1. Load one song to the playlist.
2. Disable all stuff in "Plaback" (repeat, shuffle, repat one etc.)
3. Start playing the song. Seek to the end of it.

Does it crash?

No! (foobar2000 v 0.51)

Doesn't crash for me, but it rarely works, and kX ASIO debug info reports that it's leaking (a whole 8 bytes of) memory. Also, even though status shows that it's buffering ~700ms of audio, it pauses when I minimize certain applications. Back to KS, I don't really need this thing anyway.

I plugged my Audigy back to recheck this.
Doesn't crash.
Hmmm... TerraTec driver bug.

No crashes. Maudio drivers here.

Same.

Works fine on my Revo, and I can use 24/32bit fixed/32bit float unlike with KS which only works up to 16 bit (though directsound and waveout allow me to use higher bit depths).

No crashes on Terratec here, but if I scroll almost to the end of last song (just a few seconds left) it does not play the remaining bits, just freezes. Foobar is still "playing", but remaining time does not change and theres no sound at all.

But nothing hangs, and I can still play another song or do anything else in foobar.
I guess that problem shows up when amount of data left is smaller than plugin's buffer...

I like outputting through ASIO through my Revo (using the drivers on the M-Audio site), however the blips I get when minimizing sometimes is somewhat...discouraging. I was wondering if this is a problem with incompatibilities with the card and ASIO, a bug in the output plugin (using 6c, newest one at the time), or just something I'm doing stupidly.

What's the advantage of ASIO over Kernel Streaming?

Increase the buffer size.  Increasing thread priority might help you with this also.

all i typed in google was: "What is ASIO?"

if you ignore the austrailian links, it's an amazing thing.

Q: What is ASIO?
A: ASIO - Audio Stream Input Output. A multi-channel audio transfer protocol developed by Steinberg.

Q: Why use ASIO over DS in in WinXP?
A: ASIO bypasses Kernel Mixer, like KS, but some cards crash when using KS so you have ASIO as an alternative.

Hmmm... ASIO FAQ

KS and ASIO:
If both of them work perfectly what is the better? In KS i can't use 32 bit float, but if I can use it in ASIO is it good? I have a DMX6Fire and I think 24 bit dithered is better for a 24 card than 32 bit any.

I have no idea if there is, but generally - soundcards for musicians.

You can use ASIO with some basic cards like SBLive ver. 1 with the help of the KX Project (http://kxproject.spb.ru/index.php?skip=1).

0.07 is out

http://www.aikis.or.jp/~otachan/foo_output_asio.html (http://www.aikis.or.jp/~otachan/foo_output_asio.html)

on a side note, i own a nforce mobo with soundstorm audio which supports asio and kernal streaming, both work perfect, however, i cant get all my speakers to work correctly with asio, if i enable the convert stereo to 4 channel with ks it works perfectly but not with asio, ive tried shifting output channels but can never get the right combination!

any help would be appreaciated.

Maybe because ASIO isn't intended for surround playback?

Just to let you know, the new build of the ASIO plugin (0.06c) seems to work correctly all the time, but the kX drivers seem to be buggy and cause problems that I haven't had when using official drivers.

Tried 0.07?

Just to let every one know that 0.8 is out.  Although I installed in in my PC and everything sounded like it was being time streched badly.  See for yourselves

Yes, it happens from time to time. Just restart playback if you hear there's something wrong with playback speed - should help...

I've tried that, I just can not get a 'normal' out put from this plug in.  Ah well, KS works great anyway.
