ASIO4ALL from main UI Problem

Does anyone know if using ASIO4ALL needs to be instantiated from the main UI?
I have a test app where the selection of the ASIO driver (ie:ASIO4ALL) is done in the main user interface GUI. I can see the audio interfaces present on my system all OK when the app starts, and I can enable/disable them by clicking on the "Blue" icons next to the interface description. But in another app I select the ASIO driver (ie: also ASIO4ALL) from a sub tab, which is not the main UI, I don't see the "Blue" icon next to the audio interfaces. This is a Windows Forms application. Regards, Karin

  • Hi Karin,

    Thanks for posting. 

    Which Alesis product are you using with the ASIO4ALL driver? The MultiMix 4 USB you've selected is class-compliant, which means it won't require a driver to communicate with your computer. ASIO4ALL is a third-party driver that is not made by us; however, we recommend using it for some of our products.

    While I'm not familiar with the software that you're using, virtually every DAW will allow you to select ASIO4ALL from the Input section of your audio preferences.

  • Thank you for responding. I'm using the Alesis MultiMix4. The software is a custom piece of code I'm writing for a remote radio site. This application uses a client/server architecture using UDP for the streaming audio. I have my code working all OK using the built in audio hardware in my local system, not using the MultiMix device. I use ASIO4ALL which hooks the WDM drivers for a Yamaha audio chip in my local computer. Just so you understand this is not a commercial software package. I am writing it from scratch. So far the complete software package and system is working fine without the Alesis device plugged in. I purchased the Alesis MultiMix 4 to be able to implement a broadcast quality microphone into the audio chain. I've been having some issues with ASIO4ALL with regard to how it finds and hooks the on board audio devices. I don't expect you or your company to be ASIO4ALL experts, so I guess I'm on my own here. The support from the ASIO4ALL website is not too good in my experience. One problem I've been having with it is that the device active Icons don't show up in my application, although I've written a simpler test application that just creates an audio chain and opens the stream both ways, and that works OK by showing the icons correctly. Any ideas where I might find an ASIO4ALL guru????
