Anyone managed to use all six channels of the Emagic EMI 2|6 under Win10? The last official driver from Emagic for that soundcard is for WinXP. And under Win10, I can only get "unofficial, generic" drivers from Microsoft. But when using these, I can only access the first two channels in Audition/VLC/whatever?! And there seems to be no ASIO-support?!
Thanks and kind regards,
I have two operating systems on my computer.
My Roland sampler is connected to my Emagic EMI 2/6 sound card and win10 doesn't recognize it because it uses a 32-bit driver.
I booted the system with linux "mint" recognized my sound card and installed the driver, I restarted the system with win10.
The LEDs of my sound card are on and I got a message saying "your device is loaded and ready to use".
But unless you can run an ASIO driver with the card, you won't get multichannel use with Audition in Windows - and that goes for any version, 32 or 64 bit. I'm afraid it's that simple. It would appear that a lot of people have difficulty with this, one way or another - the device seems to have been better supported for Macs, but I'm not sure whether even they can use it now.
ASIO4ALL isn't an ASIO driver for your sound device. It's an interface between an ASIO-based app (which Audition is) and a standard Windows MME driver. It has a number of diagnostic tools and one trick up its sleeve which lets you concatenate inputs from different sources - which of course a proper ASIO driver won't let you do. But it won't reveal more inputs, because the interface with your sound device is still via most of the OS. What a proper ASIO driver does is bypass most of the layers of that - which is why it will only communicate with a single device, and also why it gives you lower latency.
I know asio4all is not real asio driver.
The focus here is that the 32-bit device is running on 64-bit win10.
Do not be unnecessarily dissident and drag the subject elsewhere.
Don't discourage people who find and share a solution.
You haven't shared any solution at all, though. The original question is about revealing multiple inputs - it is you who have dragged this off-topic. Unless you can get a real ASIO driver, working with the native OS, and not a 32-bit emulation, you won't be able to do this.
