I'm building a new computer and I need a sound card. On wikipedia is a lot of information about ASIO and it sounds good to me, but I can't find any card with ASIO... What am I doing wrong? My budget is 50-100 euro (72.58-145.16 dollar) But I prefer off course the lowest price, if it's what I'm searching for.

I'm searching a card that has much sound quality, surround 5.1 (but is not necessary). And that supports MIDI keyboards. But not needs a MIDI port.

Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) is a computer soundcard driver protocol for digital audio specified by Steinberg, providing a low-latency and high fidelity interface between a software application and a computer's sound card. Whereas Microsoft's DirectSound is commonly used as a stereo input and output for non-professional users, ASIO allows musicians and sound engineers to process their audio via Windows' computer software instead of external hardware.

ASIO bypasses the normal audio path from the user application through layers of intermediary Windows operating system software, so that the application connects directly to the soundcard hardware. Each layer that is bypassed means a reduction in latency, the delay between an application sending sound to the sound being reproduced by the soundcard. In this way ASIO offers a relatively simple way of accessing multiple audio inputs and outputs independently. Its main strength lies in its method of bypassing the inherently high latency of operating system audio mixing kernels (KMixer), allowing direct, high speed communication with audio hardware. Unlike KMixer, an unmixed ASIO output is "bit identical", that is, the bits sent to the sound card are identical to those of the original WAV file, thus having higher audio fidelity.

Interface support is normally restricted to Microsoft Windows, since other operating systems (e.g. Apple's Mac OS X or Linux) do not have such mixer latency problems. In Windows Vista, KMixer has been removed and replaced by a new WaveRT port driver. WaveRT cannot provide synchronized audio to multiple devices and does not support external clocks.[1]

As of 2007 there is also an experimental ASIO driver for Wine, a Windows layer for Linux. This wineasio driver uses the JACK sound server as its audio back-end and allows many ASIO-aware applications to run with low-latency under WINE.


ah I know what card it will be XD

After my top-5 hit: Crawling 2.1, I've made a new song, but sadly no comments and just a few ratings... Would you like to rate Eastern - Mjattie

Hey, I've had my piano C grade Exam this week, and guess what? Cum laude! with 9's en 9,5's... Maybe I'll buy a MIDI keyboard to let you guys hear it... But have you got any advice what kind of MIDI keyboard I should buy? By the way, I think I stick to Reason 4 instead of FL studios. I only need some new kits. If you know any sites where I can find those FREE, could you please give me the links?

Ty already, that's all for now

I'm switching to trance. I really like it. So you can expect more trance coming up. But maybe something classical or dancy can be included.
