Looks good. Will it work on XP at all?

Probably not. But this needs more investigations.

Ok thanks. I use XP and have no plans to change to later Microsoft OS. Maybe Linux Mint.

I've been playing with the demo version of this and it's very intuitive and easy to create your objective.
Nicely done.

Dave.

It's a simple question whose answer is not as simple. It depends on what you want to do and on your budget. It is best to choose an ASIO sound card that is capable of doing loopback internally (direct sound from Windows to EKIO). But these cards are not very common. So a good choice is to route the signal with an external loopback by using SPDIF or ADAT.

ESI sound cards have good drivers. Most of them offer the DirectWIRE function, which allows internal loopback. The Maya44 XTe card is a sound card that provides 4 good quality outputs for a moderated price.

Focusrite Saffire sound cards (Firewire) allow to realize the loopback of 2 channels internally. On cards that have an ADAT input and an ADAT output, we can use them to make an external 8 channels loopback.

Focusrite Scarlett sound cards (USB) do not allow internal loopback. So we have to use an external loopback with SPDIF (2 channels) or ADAT (8 channels).


RME cards have an excellent mixer (TotalMix) but I'm not sure if they can receive multichannel sound (5.1, 7.1, etc) from Windows.

Here is a short list of sound cards that are well suited for EKIO:

ESI Maya44 XTe
Bus : PCIe
Analog outputs : 4
Number of channels received from Windows : 4 (internal loopback)

FocusRite Saffire Pro 14
Bus : Firewire
Analog outputs : 4
Number of channels received from Windows : 2 (internal loopback)

FocusRite Scarlett 6i6
Bus : USB
Analog outputs : 4
Number of channels received from Windows : 2 (external loopback via SPDIF)

FocusRite Saffire Pro40
Bus : Firewire
Analog outputs : 10
Number of channels received from Windows : 2 (internal loopback) or 8 (external loopback via ADAT)

FocusRite Scarlett 18i20
Bus : USB
Analog Outputs : 10
Number of channels received from Windows : 8 (external loopback via ADAT)

They are many other cards that can be used. So feel free to share your experiences.
