Driver adds full support for Windows 2000 30/04/01
New SW1000XG WDM low latency drivers with Asio support released
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.
