드라이버를 지원하지 않는 단종 오디오인터페이스에게 새 생명을 불어넣기

mbox-1-digidesign-interface-profesional10611288_3_2009125_5_12_471

 

저의 골동품 mbox1는 avid(구 digidesign)에서 더이상(사실, 아주 오래 전 부터) 지원하지 않는 골동품 입니다.

ASIO4ALL을 사용하려해도 윈도우7에서 드라이버가 없기 때문에 버려져야 마땅하나, Ploytec GmbH 이라는 개발사의 드라이버를 통해 윈도우7 64bit에서도 엠박스1을 사용할 수 있게 되었습니다.

구입을 하고 테스트를 해보니 생각 보다 아주 잘 돌아갑니다. 버려질 수 있었던 단종품들이 쌩쌩하게 돌아가주니 기쁘지 아니할 수 없습니다.

44유로로 6만4천원 정도로 구입할 수 있으며, 이메일로 시리얼 넘버를 보내주는 방식입니다.

데모버전은 30초에 한번씩 비프음이 나며, 정신건강에 아주 해롭습니다.

Ever thought about using your laptop as a synthesizer or digital effect-box? Did you notice there’s some delay related to the computer’s sound processing?

The USB Audio ASIO driver is the solution. It enables buffersizes down to 32 samples (0.73 ms) and creates an ultra highspeed USB audio connection, bypassing the operating system’s audio.

This does not only give you low latencies, but better sound quality also.

SoundManager (Mac) and MultiMedia Extensions (MME / Win) use non-highend sample rate conversion in order to sync the different audio signals from applications to the sample rates used on the external soundcard. And sometimes there’s not even a way to control the rate to be the prefered one. (E.g. 48kHz instead of 44.1kHz.)

Using ASIO it’s possible to do direct “one to one” hardware connections and even use higher bitrates (e.g. 20bit or 24bit) if supported by the device.

But of course, you need an ASIO compatible application like Audition, Cubase, Wavelab, Logic Audio, Reason, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Sonar, BPM Studio, etc. If the app supports ASIO2 you’ll be able to benefit from more features.

Limitations using Creative Extigy with this driver: 48 kHz, stereo output, line or mic input (digital input only while output is muted), no MIDI, no remote control functionality. We worked hard to change this, still it seems to be impossible at the moment. But low latency at least…
