ASIO

« Back to Glossary Index

Audio Stream Input/Output. Steinberg’s protocol for communication between audio hardware and software. Used in Cubase. It bypasses the operating systems standard multimedia audio drivers to provide multi-channel support, improve audio timing, and reduce monitoring latency. ASIO runs at a lower level (it bypasses much of the Windows OS) and typically manages lower latencies than both MME and DirectSound.
