Audio Interface Neded: ASIO Multi-Client Support

Recommended Posts

So, I have a very particular problem I've been trying to figure out for months, but I can't seem to find a solution anywhere. I bought a new laptop a a few months ago, but before that I had a desktop (w/ XP) with an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 Delta Series soundcard. I needed a good ASIO soundcard and this thing was great to me. I mostly record from within the computer (no mics, guitar, MIDI, etc...) so it did what I needed it to do. My main need is multi-client support -- this is when I could have FLStudio open using ASIO drivers and I could also have Windows Media Player playing music at the same time. I could also have Audacity recording "what-you-hear" from Sibleius 5 no problem.

Well, now I have a nice vista laptop and I just bought a new EMU 0404 USB. The sound is great, and my latency is sweet, but I no longer have the multi-client support. Unless there is away around this (which I couldn't find) I'm not sure it's worth having the EMU (despite the great reviews it gets). Is there a fix? Are there any USB audio interfaces with ASIO multi-client support? Hope you can help.

Update: In case anyone was interested in this, I found that the Audio Kontrol 1 from Native Instruments has good multi-client ASIO support. This interface was listed on the "what soundcard should I buy" sticky if anyone is interested in it. Are there any other interfaces with good multi-client support?
