I read a review online that mentioned they used a native C-Media ASIO driver when using the Gungnir. This made me curious because it seemed this C-Media ASIO was not installed with the Windows driver package. The only way I knew of using ASIO was with ASIO4All (or ASIO2ks).
Here is how to use the C-Media ASIO. Note: Try this at your own risk, I doubt this driver is officially supported.
1. If you didn't keep the Shiit Audio driver package ZIP then download it from their website.
2. Unzip the package, open the folder and you'll find 4 folders corresponding to different Windows versions. Open the folder for your version of Windows. Inside that folder should be a folder named SoftwareDriver, open that folder to find a folder named DLL.
3. The CMUACWOASIO.DLL and CMUACWOASIO64.DLL files inside the DLL folder are what you want. Copy those two files and paste them into your Windows folder (probably C:\Windows\).
4. Open a Command Prompt (click Start button, click Run, type cmd.exe OR find it in All Programs - Accessories).
5. At the Command Prompt type: regsvr32 "C:\Windows\CMUACWOASIO.DLL"
then press enter and type: regsvr32 "C:\Windows\CMUACWOASIO64.DLL"
and press enter again. If you pasted the two .DLL files somewhere else you'll have to change the C:\Windows path accordingly.
Now if you open foobar, xmplay, ulilith or whatever your using you should find another available output probably called ASIO for C-Media USB. If you don't see the output listed, restart your computer. The control panel only has two options: bit-depth and latency (4 ms works for me).
If the step-by-step instructions left you a little confused the basic process to use the C-Media ASIO driver is: Copy the CMUACWOASIO.DLL and CMUACWOASIO64.DLL files from the driver package to your system folder and register those two .DLL's from a command prompt.
If you want to uninstall the C-Media ASIO driver then enter these two commands from a command prompt:
regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\CMUACWOASIO.DLL"
regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\CMUACWOASIO64.DLL"
Then delete the two .DLL files.
