ESI's EWDM driver is compatible with all current Windows operating systems, integratihg all commonly used driver standards into one single driver. You can use any fully ASIO 2.0, GSIF, MME, WDM (Kernel Streaming) or DirectSound compatible audio application with an ESI audio interface that provides an EWDM driver.
EWDM will let you use multiple audio applications (clients) that are fully compatible to the ASIO 2.0, GSIF, MME, WDM and DirectSound standard simultaneously. You want to run your multi-channel audio/MIDI sequencer (like Cubase), a sample editor (like WaveLab) and a media player (like WinAMP) to preview some samples simultaneously? No problem.
MultiMME Support - MultiMME feature of EWDM allows single or multiple audio applications to access any input and output channel of your hardware simultaneously.
MultiASIO Support - MultiASIO is a new feature of EWDM driver. It allows you to use up to 16 ASIO compatible applications running at the same time. ESI is even planning to expend this feature when the general PC system performance gets better in the future.
The new features of EWDM driver will be added to selected ESI products beginning in Q2, 2005.
