Re: Aggregate audio device on Windows 10 64 bit?

Voicemeeter is an option I've used from time to time, but it adds too much latency - I never got past that to check for drift.
Welcome to SOUND ON SOUND magazine's recording and production forums, described by some as "an oasis of rationality".

I would suspect they suffer from similar issues - introducing latency and devices will likely drift after a while. It's straightforward to set buffer size and sample rate on multiple devices but it's the lack of a common clock reference at driver specification level that gives problems.
ASIO was invented exactly to bypass the Windows Mixer - all that functionality need to be computed somewhere in the processing line from inputs to outputs, and that adds latency. Asio4All offers no such facilities trying to provide the most straightforward wrapping (only I/O).
But by all means it costs nothing to try :)

Possibly because UAD only expose 2 inputs with their WDM driver? Do you have any software that can use the WDM drivers (like Reaper) to check whether this is the case?
