Network ASIO Streamer

Software bridge between ASIO and EtherSound Overview AuviTran Network ASIO Streamer is a PC software solution to bridge best of two low latency professional audio standards:

 ASIO compatible audio applications  Audio devices with connection to EtherSound

Key Features ■ ■

After installation of the AuviTran Network ASIO software in your PC with just an additional Ethernet cable and without additional cost, add recording and playback features to:

 AuviTran AVY16-ES100 card for Yamaha devices  AuviTran AVM500-ES or AVM500-ES/3ports matrix router Through AuviTran ESMonitor application, patch ASIO and EtherSound audio channels to and from any device connected to the network.

  ■ ■

With an ASIO compatible application:

 Play high quality audio on any EtherSound networked device  Record high quality audio from any EtherSound networked 

device Record multichannel high quality audio from Yamaha mixers

Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) is a computer soundcard driver protocol for digital audio specified by Steinberg, providing a low-latency and high fidelity interface between a software application and computer’s soundcard or ASIO device. It allows software to have access to the multi-channel capabilities of a wide range of powerful audio devices. ASIO is a trademark and software of Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH EtherSound™ enhances established technologies to provide easy-to-implement, high-quality audio networks. The patented EtherSound™ protocol provides fully deterministic, very low-latency (125µs plus 1.4µs per additional network node) transmission of synchronized audio channels over standard Ethernet. EtherSound™ provides a cost effective fully digital path between a virtually infinite number of networked audio devices with up to 128 channels of 24-bit digital audio at 48 KHz, with bidirectional status and control data. Off-the-shelf Ethernet components such as 100baseTX switch can be used to extend the number of audio devices, as well as the distance between the devices on the network.

AVY16-ES100 is seen as a Virtual Sound card by any ASIO compatible application Connecting a PC with an ASIO compatible application to any AVY16-ES100 through its third port, you can add record/playback features to the EtherSound existing features of the card: Record up to 16 audio channels to PC

AVM500-ES (or AVM500-ES/3ports) matrix router is seen as a Virtual Sound card by any ASIO compatible application Connecting a PC with an ASIO compatible application to an AVM500-ES matrix router or AVM500-ES/3ports through one EtherSound port, you can add record/playback features to the EtherSound existing features:

  ■

Play up to 16 audio channels from PC

Play up to 64 audio channels from PC Record up to 64 audio channels to PC

The ASIO channels can be patched to and from any of the EtherSound audio channels though AuviTran ESMonitor application

Application examples ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

Live: Laptop solution for high quality multitrack live recording from sources over EtherSound Live and studio: Low cost and efficient solution for direct recording from a Yamaha digital mixer, even without EtherSound Live: ideal mobile solution for DJs who want to play high quality audio (effects, improvisation…) directly from a laptop Sound reinforcement : easy solution to play high quality pre recorded material (effects, sound creations, speeches…) from a regular PC or from a laptop Public Address: distribute, route and control high quality audio material from a regular PC over networked devices Music centers and schools: Digital Audio Workstations networked for collaborative work and learning
