This brand new low latency WDM driver for Windows 2000 adds full functionality and support for the SW1000XG under Microsoft's premier operating system. This driver fixes the MIDI in problem found in earlier beta drivers for the SW1000XG under Windows 2000. It fully supports ACPI MULTIPROC mode (multiprocessor support), low latency KS Mixer streaming (as found in Cakewalk's brand new SONAR application), and all of the benefits that Sonar brings with KMIXER bypass (for a detailed and interesting overview on the subject of latency issues under WDM , point your browser to http://www.cakewalk.com/devxchange/audio_i.htm. The driver also supports suspend (sleep) mode under Windows 2000.
Latency for playback of Dxi instruments under SONAR is under 20ms. Also included in this driver update are low latency ASIO 2.0 drivers for Windows2000. These drivers are intended to support ASIO 2.0 based applications under Windows 2000 such as Steinberg Cubase VST, Steinberg Nuendo, Native Instruments Software Synths and various other software synths and applications that have full Windows 2000 support for ASIO.
This driver under ASIO supports multiple devices (SW & DS2416 at the same time) with no device limitation caused by WDM (WDM will restrict the number of audio device ports seen to 10 maximum). Under KS Mixer bypass applications (such as SONAR) this device limit (which is an inherent problem in Windows 2000) is bypassed also.
