Definitions for "asio "
A standard for sound card drivers that offer very high performance and very low latency in a supporting application.
Audio Stream In/Out, this a direct from sound hardware low latency method of sending sounds, it bypasses the Windows sound mixer for perfect sound reproduction.
A standardized communication protocol between audio software and hardware, developed by Steinberg Media Technologies to bypass the problem of potentially high operating system/monitoring latency (time delay). It enables audio hardware manufacturers to write optimized drivers for their hardware. For a user, the knowledge that an ASIO driver exists for a particular piece of hardware, is a sign that there will be a performance boost, compared with the same audio card configured to use an operating system’s own mechanism.
