(Audio Stream Input/Output)
Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) is a computer sound card 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 an intermediary signal path for non-professional users, ASIO allows musicians and sound engineers to access external hardware directly.
ASIO drivers are a fine alternative to native
Windows audio I/O drivers for many machines. Since the release of the freeware
ASIO4ALL driver pack, improved performance and reduced latency are now in reach
of even modest host CPUs.
