Adds ASIO output support. Useful for rare/obscure soundcards that provide ASIO drivers but no regular Windows audio drivers, as well as for bit-exact output on any soundcards that provide ASIO drivers.
Installation and Usage
- Install the ASIO component from the foobar2000 official components site.
- Configure it - Preferences / Playback / Output / ASIO Virtual Devices. This step is necessary because there's no automatic way to detect which ASIO device channel corresponds to which speaker; additionally, multiple identical soundcards present in your system are presented as different ASIO channel groups provided by one driver rather than different drivers.
- Set your output device to one of configured ASIO devices.
