Channel Count - ASIO vs. CoreAudio

Postby Silas » Sun May 25, 2014 14:36

Hello to All,

Apparently, either I can't read or everything magically changed. I can no longer find the reference to this is print so...perhaps a fixed typo or sleep induced halucinations...apologies...

It is in print in Ravenna ASIO and CoreAudio Guide, page 10 for ASIO, and page 17 for CoreAudio.
CoreAudio can handle 64 channels at x1, x2, and x4 sampling rates, ASIO is capable of 64 channels at x1 Fs, 32 at x2 Fs, 16 at x4 Fs, and 8 at x8 Fs and DSD.

I was wondering if there are plans to accommodate at least 64 channels at x2 Fs in ASIO?

Well it's nice to know I wasn't imagining it ;-)

I suspect it's a typo as I'm sure Merging has allocated whatever bandwidth possible in the Ravenna stream.

Best Wishes,
Silas
