Adds ASIO output support. Useful for rare/obscure soundcards that provide ASIO drivers but no regular Windows audio drivers, as well as for bit-exact output on any soundcards that provide ASIO drivers.

Installation and Usage

  1. Install the ASIO component from the foobar2000 components site.
  2. Configure it - Preferences / Playback / Output / ASIO Virtual Devices. This step is necessary because there's no automatic way to detect which ASIO device channel corresponds to which speaker; additionally, multiple identical soundcards present in your system are presented as different ASIO channel groups provided by one driver rather than different drivers.
  3. Set your output device to one of configured ASIO devices.
