ASUS Xonar series WHQL drivers by Daniel_K - Page 4

If you can control the volume in Windows, then both ASIO and WASAPI aren't working. It means the audio is still being touched by software mixers which is exactly what ASIO and WASAPI aim to bypass.

The two aims are to reduce latency (for music creation) and to provide exclusive mode so music isn't interrupted by other noises. Quality is sometimes said to be increased, but in 99.999999% of times, it won't.

Even if you have ASIO installed, the application still has to have an output wrapper to use it. So, FooBar2000 with WASAPI will not allow me to control volume. When I exit and watch youtube, I certainly can (because it uses a standard driver (I think?).

Well, how do I make it work then? I remember before I bought my sound card and used on-board sound I wasn't able to control volume when using Foobar. In fact, nothing audio-wise except Foobar would work (if I tried watching a Youtube video, I couldn't hear anything on the Youtube video because I still was listening to music with Foobar open).

With my sound card though, I could both listen to music on Foobar on Youtube, which I thought was very unusual.

Ah, this is why I don't touch ASIO because it really is a hacked job. You can have hardware supported ASIO (which Asus cards support), but then also a software aspect.

What you need to do, is uninstall all that rubbish. Go to audio options and enable exclusive modes. Install the WASAPI output for Foobar2000 and then it should work fine. Then it will bypass the Windows Mixer.

Actually never mind. I can't hear anything in Youtube videos now...it's just audio from my music on Youtube.

However, I'm still able to control the volume with Windows, but it's not the Windows volume rocker. It's now marked "Speakers (ASUS Xonar D2X Audio device)."

These 1793 drivers + Foobar2000 v1.1.2:

- ASIO: Volume is controllable within Foobar2000. Volume is not controllable in Windows Mixer. Sound only in Foobar, not in any external apps.

- WASAPI: Volume is controllable within Foobar2000 and Windows mixer. It seems Foobar 100% volume is whatever volume is set in Windows mixer. Sound only in Foobar 2000, not in any external apps.

Yea, that seems about right. Thanks for clarifying that. My sound card and drivers are working correctly.

So let me ask, should I uninstall my Xonar DG drivers before I install these, or just install these over mine?

Uninstall your current ones first, then reboot and install the new ones
