Digidesign ASIO Driver failure
« on: April 30, 2010, 11:33 »
Two users reported a problem, which freezes SATlive when you try to change / select the Audio I/O device.

  • The digiasio.dll must be installed (i.e. a digidesign driver must have been installed before
  • The device was not connected to the pc since the last startup

In this case, the driver reports a crazzy amount of available inputs and outputs. SATlive tries to read the names of all input and outputs, which would take a very long time and a lot of memory.

Currently there are only the following 'workarounds' available:
a) Connect the device to your pc prior to the start of SATlive
b) Disable the scanning of the ASIO devices (This will list all asio devices whose drivers are available).
  • locate the audiosettings133.ini file, which is in the Tomy Soft\SATlive Common directory. The absolute position varies with your os settings and language
  • Open the file and locate the [ASIO] section
  • Change the value right to SCAN to 0
  • Save the file
  • In SATlive never select the driver, as long as no device is connected


The following report is created using the ASIOtest.exe from http://www.take-sat.de/download/tools/ASIOTest.zip and shows the problem (and other incorrect 'replies' from the driver).
**********************
Try to open device 1, ASIO Digidesign Driver
Driver: c:\windows\system32\digiasio.dll
Successfully created

Query current samplerate: Success, reported: 44.100,0
Scan for channel count: Success
Found inputs: 5981271 outputs: 995317583
Query buffersize: Success, Min: 0, max: 0, pref(current): 0
Report Input Monoitoring: Hardware input or output is not present or available.
Invoking Control Panel: Success
Controlpanel okay
***************************************

I've created a supportcase at digidesign and the next release of SATlive willl contain a check to avoid the freezing.
