  • ASIO clients are now allowed to change the buffer size using the ASIO API, but only if there are no other ASIO clients open.
  • Improved support for the WASAPI driver mode in Vista.
  • Added support to the ASIO driver's API so that an ASIO host can indicate that it will not attempt to change any parameters and therefore should not affect parameter locking.

  • Driver Installer modified to install without reboot
