Windows Drivers

Information about our drivers:

Windows Driver Versions
AudioScience traditionally sells our Professional Audio Cards through Value Added Resellers (VARs) listed here on our website. The VAR that you have purchased the audio card from will also provide you the the appropriate driver to be used with their software application. There are 2 versions of the AudioScience Windows driver, the 32-bit Combo Driver and the 64-bit Combo Driver. You must choose the appropriate version based on your Windows operating system. Both drivers will install standard WDM devices by default and provide an option to "Install Legacy 32-bit WAVE driver" during the install process. You only need to include the legacy driver if your software requires it. Please check with your software provider for help in making that determination.

Authorized sales
Sales of AudioScience Inc. (ASI) products are authorized only through our Value Added Resellers (VARs) and select audio equipment distributors. Products purchased through any means other than those authorized are not supported and we reserve the right to restrict warranty repairs and driver download on any product that do not meet this criteria. Products purchased through any 3rd party such as Ebay or direct sales between individuals will not be supported.

ASIO
All Windows drivers will install support for the ASIO interface automatically.

Driver Selection - PLEASE READ
AudioScience traditionally sells our Professional Audio Cards through Value Added Resellers (VARs) listed here on our website. The VAR that you have purchased the audio card from will also provide you the the appropriate driver to be used with their software application. AudioScience does allow Distributors to resell our PCM only cards and network products and in this case you would download the current driver from our website.

Adapter Support
Some older cards are no longer supported in recent driver releases, while new cards have been added and are only supported in newer driver releases.  For a list of our cards and driver support, check here.

Driver Versioning
Our driver numbering uses the NN.NN.NN system. A released driver, one that you would find on this page, will always have an even number as its middle two digits - 3.06.07, for example. Odd numbered middle digits will be our "in development" drivers - 3.07.06, for example.

Previous Windows release version

-These drivers are provided as a courtesy to our customers who are using older hardware. Most versions can be used in Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows XP is no longer a supported operating system and we recommend all customers update their systems to current Windows release versions as soon as possible. Microsoft no longer provides support for Windows XP so we are are also unable to provide support for that operating system. Please refer to this Microsoft release for further information on end of support for XP.

Please note, version 4.04.12 is the last driver version to support the ASI60xx, ASI61xx and ASI62xx cards.
