Steinberg have announced the release of a new version of its world standard ASIO protocol: ASIO 2.1. The latest version of the Audio Stream Input Output now offers support for the DSD format. The SDK for the new version is now available for download from www.steinberg.net. Following from an intense technological cooperation with Sony, Steinberg has updated its ASIO protocol to support the Direct Stream Digital standard. ASIO 2.1 allows the transport of DSD format audio between audio applications and hardware that support the standard. "At Steinberg we are firmly committed to developing open and inclusive audio technologies," states Claus Menke, Steinberg's Head of Product Management. "DSD support within ASIO opens up new possibilities for audio application and hardware manufacturers to include DSD in their products." DSD forms the technological backbone of SACD, or Super Audio Compact Disc, a high-resolution, surround-capable audio medium. About ASIO, Steinberg's Low Latency, High Performance Audio Standard
The Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) architecture forms the backbone of Steinberg's Virtual Studio Technology. ASIO supports variable bit depths and sample rates, multi-channel operation and synchronization. The user gets low latency, high performance, easy set up and stable audio recording within VST. The entire system becomes controllable and offers complete and immediate access to the audio system's capabilities. Since its introduction, ASIO has become a supported standard by many leading audio hardware manufacturers - for good reason. More info:
