Unsupported Windows audio driver types (WASAPI, WaveRT)

  • Live-Versionen: All
  • Betriebssystem: Windows Vista, Windows 7

Symptom

Certain Windows audio driver types cannot be selected in Live.

Reason

  • WASAPI drivers, introduced with Windows Vista are currently unsupported. There are no plans to introduce support, as the drivers are rarely used.
  • WaveRT drivers, introduced with Vista as well, are neither supported. We donÂŽt see much benefit in supporting these drivers, as they only work with certain internal soundcards.

Solution

Use the appropriate ASIO driver for the soundcard/interface, or ASIO4ALL for internal soundcards.
