WDM Drivers
Sample Champion

 

Use of WDM (Win32 Driver Model) drivers with
Sample Champion


Sample Champion can work with any audio hardware that uses a Windows compatible driver. Also the new WDM drivers are supported. The use of these drivers can give many benefits: low latency and much improved robustness (especially under heavy system loads).

Moreover, in some cases the use of these drivers resolves compatibility problems between audio cards and Sample Champion. For example the M-Audio Delta series audio card with WDM drivers doesn't need any longer the Audio Hardware Adjustments function (all values can be set to "0"). The Ego-Sys Wa-Mi Rack 24 audio card with WDM drivers works well with Sample Champion (previously it didn't, probably because of a bug in the standard drivers). Unfortunately these two devices cannot be used at 24 bit depth with current WDM drivers.

An interesting article about the future of audio in Windows is available at this address: http://cakewalk.com/DevXchange/audio_i.asp

Most audio hardware manufacturers have announced or already released WDM drivers for their audio cards. The following is a list of links to driver pages of the major audio manufacturers:
