I enquired with EGO-SYS this morning about GSIF2 for their WAMI-RACK line of products.
The UK office told me they will not be supporting GSIF2. (The answer came back in less than 1 minute !!!)
I wrote back and expressed surprise and disappointment, and asked for the rationale. The UK Support guys have promised to consult further with HQ in Korea ..... but don;t hold your breath.
This is disappointing to say the least. This interface has an amazing universal driver set that lets multiple applications share the sound card at the same time, be they ASIO, GSIF or WDM. Further it has a fantastic electronic patch frame, where you can patch the output of any of your audio applications to the input of any of the others, irrespective of drivers ... its like REWIRE at the operting system level.
Importantly for me it means I can use one PC for both cubase and gigastudio, and stream directly from GigaStudio into Cubase on 10 (or is it 8 ?) different channels simultaneously.
If the UK Support guy comes back with a negative answer, I'll invite him on here to share their rationale with the community.
- Any other WAMI - RACK users here ?
- Just in case the worst does happen, does any one know of other GSIF2 sound cards that support multiple drivers simultaneously and allow for free patching electronic patching between audio applications ?
