.....but you won't be playing Live "in ASIO" if you're using ASIO4ALL.
You'll still be using WDM but with an additional layer/wrapper (ASIO4ALL) on top.
If the guy knew how many issues his damn driver caused, with people thinking it would somehow turn their cheap consumer sound card into a low latency "ASIO card" he'd rename the flippin' thing or post a HUGE statement on his site explaining that for the majority of software now, it's completely unnecessary.
I have been using maybe 10 or 15 sound interfaces/cards in my life, including MOTU, RME, M-Audio (i hated this last one), Tascam, (as well as SoundBlaster long time ago
) etc. so I know what is ASIO, and what is not ASIO
I DO know that the internal soundcard of my laptop is NOT a HIGH-END sound interface
But ASIO4ALL works great : I can have very low latency and I am then able to play with very low latency with a small keyboard and my laptop only. That's what I want, and ASIO4ALL works great for this.
The only extra thing I need is : to play Live with Asio4all + using Soundforge in WDM at the same time.
