ASIO: Native vs Other?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So im using ASIO4ALL and the plugin for Winamp i guess, i forgot what all i did to set it up. But anyway, i saw something about native ASIO? Can anyone explain this more or point me in the right direction? I did some searching but to no avail. I'm pretty sure the soundcard i have now has ASIO 2 support/drivers, and that native is better than ASIO4ALL. What about when i get a DAC? I'm so confused about all this. I don't even know if i'm in the ballpark. Any help is appreciated

I don't think you have to worry about it. Native ASIO isn't necessarily better than ASIO4ALL. ASIO4All uses kernel streaming to achieve bit perfect playback, and the difference between ASIO and KS is not noticeable to the human ear, at least I can't tell the difference between them. And when you get a USB DAC like the E-Mu 0404 it will have native ASIO support for sure.
