All our LUCI products are compatible with all audio interfaces that are supported by the Operating system.
For Windows it is advisable to use so called ASIO drivers that tend to have smaller latencies ( audio delays ). Most Vendors like RME, Focusrite or Motu have excellent Audio interfaces and supply “multi-client” ASIO drivers. These multi-client ASIO drivers are a must if you want to use LUCI STUDIO as a multi channel server.
Here we will list a few things you should take into account when you use Audio Interfaces from Specific manufacturers:
- Multichannel audio interfaces from this manufacturer do not support multi-client ASIO. So if you want to use ASIO in LUCI LIVE or LUCI STUDIO, make sure no other software is using ASIO with the same audio interface. This also means that only 1 instance of LUCI STUDIO can be used with ASIO. Preferably use the standard Windows audio driver or Wasapi.
- Switch off “Sync Start” in the Lynx driver settings.
Audinate has 2 different virtual audio sound-cards with ASIO drivers for use with Dante interfaces:
- “Dante Virtual Soundcard”. All though it has support for 32 audio channels it’s only limited to one Application (not multi client !), so can only be used by LUCI LIVE or LUCI STUDIO with 1 instance ( no simultaneous streams ).
- “Dante Via”. This is suitable for LUCI STUDIO with more instances (simultaneous streams). It can handle 16 channels per instances which is sufficient for one LUCI STUDIO instance ( max “7.1” ).
