Jackaudio, Voicemeeter. Soundflower...

Post by robinette » Wed Feb 21, 2018 2:24 am

Hi.

Actually I'm not looking for software that sends audio between applications.
The title softwares I think they do that precisely.
What I'm looking for is sending audio from one audio interface to another through its drivers.
The software must be able to see the drivers of two (or more) audio interfaces. You must be able to take the audio from an audio interface and take it to another audio interface with different driver. Voicemeeter Banana is able to do it, but it is limited to 8 I/O and I need 32 I/O.

The idea is to work in Scope with Xite-1 but go out to external table through an Orion 32. As we know Orion 32 and Xite-1 only have 16 I/O through ADAT and it would be necessary to have 32 I/O available .
Discard using A16 Ultra and zlink. Zlink is a discontinued protocol and I will not invest in it.

It does not seem that Soniccore plans to expand Xite through XTDM with MADI, Dante, AVB ... so I'm thinking of another alternative via software.

Any other alternative?

Greetings.

What drivers are you talking about? Low level like system device driver or something between ASIO and that?

Except Banana is the only one I know able to link 2 audio interfaces. I too am looking for such a application.
Odeus is able to do it if you send to it the 2° audio interface signal via ethernet.

It does not look like Bidule does what I need.
I do not require processing, just routing.
But the routing must be done between ASIO drivers of two different audio interfaces.

As I said before, the idea is to work in Scope with Xite-1 but go out to the external table through an Orion 32. As we know, Orion 32 and Xite-1 only have 16 I/O through ADAT and it would be necessary to have 32 I/O available.

For this I am trying to find a software capable of communicating the ASIO driver of an interface with the I/O of another different interface.

Voicemeeter Banana can route only 8 I/O. I need 32 I/O.

Odeus works with a single ASIO driver. Does not link to another ASIO driver.
You can transmit multichannel audio through ethernet but it might be necessary another Windows PC to link the audio coming through ethernet with the ASIO driver of the other audio interface.
A lot of trouble.

because of how ASIO works, it's unlikely that you will find what you want in this way. drivers connect hardware to software, never hardware to hardware, and ASIO requires that the app be locked to the driver. locking to two drivers would probably be a fairly problematic thing to do. find an A16 Ultra and use ADAT and Analog for 32 channels is likely to be the only viable solution. you might be able to connect to a Dante interface via a LAN connection...

Well... Actually Voicemeeter manages to route two ASIO drivers and therefore two different hardware. The limitation is that it only does it with 8 channels and I need 32.
As I said before, I have an Orion 32 interface, and not an A16 Ultra.
The only way I can think of to connect them is through MADI if Soniccore has the idea to use the XTDM port of Xite. Either this or doing it through software (as I am considering in this thread).

robinette, i understand your dilema.
if there was a MADI option, it would replace Z-Link, and i'm all for that. i'd love to see a Dante option as well, but neither exists at this time.

the other solution is more pricey, but since you insist on a pricey AD/DA, maybe that's not the end of the world. both of these format converters offer matrix routing and MADI to ADAT:

Thanks. I will continue looking for a software solution.

Greatings.
