    Hi all,

    Your request has been heard! We plan to implement ASIO support but unfortunately I can't provide an official release date for this feature yet.

    I agree with FJ Lamela. This should be a very high priority for Sonarworks.

    It's a good thing I did not fish out $229.00 for the speaker calibration software I can't use.  Guys get with the program and have your software compatible with ASIO.  Many of us in the professional industry use ASIO.

     

    Edit 6/26/17... I've not heard any updates that specify ASIO support is in progress...  Should be a priority as it is also good marketing and impacts ROI for Sonarworks

    I just did not thought it was possible: no ASIO support. Sounds like a (bad) joke.

    And then, how do I do with my ASIO sound card and phantom power?

    Any idea?

    Well, it's not free and a bit tricky: while waiting for our friends of Sonarworks, we can try Odeus ASIO Link for Windows.

    I cannot make it work now, sure I'm stupid because it's supposed to route audio to/from WDM/MME/DirectSound/WASAPI and LAN/NET. It's said to be "the ultimate audio routing solution for Windows".

    It's there: http://odeus-audio.com.au/Odeus/AsioLink

     

    Tell me your feedback!

     

    Cheers,

    V

    Hi Postmaster,

    did you find out how to adjust Odeus ASIO Link for using sonarworks calibration plugin?

    Thanks for your tip,

    Heng

    Hi Kleren,

    Well, sorry not to give more news... But the fact is that I have no news for now.

    I'll try again to have some help from Odeus support, and I'll be back here within a week I hope.

    And no more news from our Sonarworks beloved team about ASIO support...

    OK, I'll do my best to fix this issue.

    Best regards

    Here let me add my voice to these other folks: We need ASIO support in your speaker calibration application!!

    I struggled for hours to try to get this to work on my system that uses Sonar Platinum, the Emu 1820m interface and ASIO drivers.  No dice.  So now I have a speaker plugin that I can't use because I can't calibrate my studio.

    Not Happy.  : > (       Many folks in the audio industry use ASIO drivers.....how can this not have ASIO support??

    Hey all!

     

    I would just like to reassure you, that we are working on a solution that would support ASIO drivers, as that would make things easier.

     

    We really appreciate your understanding and patience!

    Hi Matiss,

    Dont you think we are patient?

    Viesturs already asked us to be patient just one year ago: May 23, 2016 14:08, "official comment"...

    Please, give us ASIO support; we have bought your soft (and more in my case since I use calibrated headphones).

    It's not a joke.

    Thanks.

    Vincent

    Hey Vincent!

    Sure I do, not saying that you aren't. As stated before, we are still working on it - but things tend to get delayed due to other products being released. Trust me - we'd love to give you, guys, every feature that you request and deserve right away. But currently, all I can do is to poke the ASIO support request to our developers and cross my fingers for a sooner release.

    Hey Matiss,

    I did not want to be upset. I did not want to be unkind.

    The fact is we like your soft. It's a good one and it makes the trick compared to other that I won't name. But we should have ASIO support since the beginning and we don't have it today. It's not "any feature that we request" but ASIO support.

    It's just a friendly pray. Please, give us ASIO support as soon as possible. It's serious, not a game.

    Many thanks for your kind answer. Be sure that we think about you every day or near.

    Kind regards.

    Vincent

    ASIO support for standalone audio applications is ... essential.

    In the meantime, you can load an empty project and use the VST plugin in Any DAW. I didn't have any problems using the headphone or the speaker calibration demos with my DAW.

    But what would be better ... integrate your software with an audio interface for the system-wide headphone component. That would be ground breaking.

    We've been working on a new release, and ASIO support is around the corner, when we get some more development resources available for it!

    Just bought this specifically because of System Wide and it's useless without ASIO support and a higher sample rate than 48kHz?? I see this is a 2-year-old issue? that's ridiculous. You should at least have a very large disclaimer saying that there isn't and won't be any ASIO support in the near future. ASIO and at least 96 kHz and multiple simultaneous outputs are a must "When we get some more development resources available for it"?  Isn't an answer. Take out a loan and get it done or you won't have to worry about development because every one of your customers will have left.

    ASIO will be implemented in the new measurement software update some time this year.

    I just got the mic and I set everything up to calibrate but my audio inputs do not show up in the calibration program. Does this mean there is no way I can do this? I just checked the product page again and it says "Windows and Mac" It doesn't say anywhere "Will not work with ASIO". In fact in one place it says "No strings attached". This is a pretty big string!! So I just paid $300 for something I can't use at all? Well, at least the headphone part works very nicely. I can't say I can give the monitor calibration a very good review though. Highly disappointed.

    Kārlis, I just received a support questionnaire but I did not see your original email. Please send another so I can reply with results. Thanks!

    Please god this.

    No ASIO support (or even WDM/WASAPI for that matter) is really disappointing :(

    The calibration software supports both ASIO and WASAPI, Systemwide is trickier though and will take longer to catch up

    I think what we need to do is just sit tight, use the Reference Plugin in our DAWS that use ASIO drivers and just listen to systemwide outside the DAWS... Yes, it's 2019 and I've just been told the same thing that currently Systemwide doesn't work with ASIO drivers.

    I'm sure a fix will come someday, it will be fixed. But until then, no use complaining.

    The other solution is jump ship to an already developed (but WAAAAY more expensive) solution like Trinnov, Danley or MiniDSP. They all do the job, but from research are quite expensive, compared to Sonarworks. Some professionals I'm sure would prefer something that isn't still in development, but for me, I'm happy just to whack in the Reference Plugin and use Systemwide outside my DAW.

    Thank you Sonarworks for doing the best you can and providing a workable solution that doesn't cost us smaller studios thousands!

    Hi Adam, 

    Thank you for understanding, tackling this is actually very difficult in the position that we're now at. However, contrary to a popular belief, we have actually done a huge amount of work on Systemwide  - you can expect a major update very soon with lots of improvements, new features and other goodies :))

    For quite some time I thought I needed ASIO drivers to use Systemwide outside my DAW, but this wasn't the case at all! 

    Systemwide HAS been working in my system, and a friend's for quite a long time- outside our DAWS.

    I use a Windows 7 Ultimate PC with a Behringer interface with Reaper, and my friend uses his MACs with Apogee and Logic- and both of us (both professionals) are using Systemwide outside these DAWS without any problem. 

    This may not be ASIO, but we're unaffected here.
