Windows Drivers



Information about our drivers:

--Windows Driver Versions
There are 3 versions of the AudioScience Windows driver.  They are the WAVE, the WDM and the Combo. Briefly, the WAVE driver supports the waveOut, waveIn and mixer interfaces, the WDM driver supports the DirectSound and DirectShow interfaces, and the Combo driver contains both the WAVE and WDM interfaces. The Combo driver is recommended unless your software requires a specific selection. See below for more information on a specific driver.

--ASIO
All Windows drivers support the ASIO interface.  The WAVE driver supports WAVE and ASIO, the WDM driver supports WDM and ASIO, and the Combo driver supports WAVE, WDM and ASIO.  (For information on configuring Adobe Audition 2.0 with the ASIO driver, see here.)

--Combo driver
The Combo driver is the recommended download for most systems. During the standard installation process, the Combo driver will install the WDM and ASIO drivers automatically. You are also given the option to install the legacy wave driver so you can add that if your software setup requires it. The Combo driver is your best option under normal circumstances as it will install the most commonly used driver by default. It is also the best option to use on systems running 2 different applications that require 2 different driver types. For example, automation software that requires the WAVE interface and editing software that requires the DirectSound or DirectShow interfaces.

--Driver Selection - PLEASE READ
To verify what driver type and version you need, AudioScience recommends checking with either the support department or the website of the application that you are using with the AudioScience card. In most cases we recommend you download and install the appropriate Combo driver for your system unless directed to do differently by an outside vendor or AudioScience Technical Support. For a list of some vendors, their applications, and the driver types they support, check here.

--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.
