ASIO Kmixer bypass? How to prove it?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
1.) I've set up ASIO through foobar but I don't know if I bypassed the Kmixer. Is there a test I can run to see if I have? 2.) Actually, now that I think about it, what exactly is supposed to happen since it's bypassed.

If your computer makes sounds during the regular activities, example, mine has a click sound when browsing in explorer. These sounds are put into the sound stream by kmixer. If you are truely passing kmixer, these sounds will be silent when they should be heard.

Ok. That answers both of my questions. I have a third now. 3.) When am I bypassing the kmixer? Whenever foobar is open? Only when I'm playing music though foobar?

Edit: AH! Failure! I'm not bypassing the k-mixer! Now I have to research.

I am pretty sure that the kmixer is the default when you boot up the machine. Using Foobar puts the KS or ASIO in place to bypass kmixer for its output. I am not sure if kmixer comes back on line just because you turned off Foobar. I dont usually have my headphones on, nor do I have the speakers turned on unless foobar is running.

Use the windows volume control. master volume and wave volume. if it works, you have not bypassed kmixer. if it dosn't work you have.

Well, the wave volume adjuster doesn't work, but the monior out does. But I think thats fine because it's controlled by the E-DSP. Well, it has the Patch Mix logo by it anyway. Thanks for the help guys. I think I have this problem fixed.

If you can hear the sound you expect you are bypassing kmixer. At least the music played in foobar is. Normal windows sounds can still go through kmixer to the E-MU. It depends on how you have set up patchmix. The ASIO panel receives asio input; the wav panel receives wav input. To restrict yourself to hearing ASIO stuff only delete the wav panel or put a send in the asio panel. (Send to... whatever physical output you want.) Send is exclusive and nothing else can get there. (But if there are no sends the main output mixes in wav and asio I think.)

Hey, now I've got a question! Would there be any way for me to make all the sounds use ASIO on my Juli@, like games, windows system sounds, etc...

ASIO is designed to filter out all of those things! Why would you want them back in the mix? If you want them in just skip ASIO altogether.

I get those sounds, I wondered what they were. So using Kernel Streaming looks the thing to do then?

The volume control in foobar and the Wave control in the control panel are the only volume controls which do anything.


How do I setup up KS in foobar, I'm using V0.9, no ASIO support. I installed a plugin(foo_out_ks) but theres nothing to be seen in preferences?

When I use ASIO in winamp, the only thing that will change the volume is the amp itself. Nothing in the volume control does anything, not even the wave.

There is a more recent version with ASIO support.

I know, the one thing stopping me is that I have foobar 0.9 setup as I like. Does anyone know if all the plugins and fcs' will work?

My Juli@ has ASIO2.0 Support, if I went with another foobar, heh, I could leave the old one installed until I get the new one right. Is using ASIO an easy job?

I seem to have gotten hold of ASIO, of sorts anyway.

Everytime I select ASIO as my output and try to play a track I get some error message and foobar shuts down, any idea anyone?
