Topic: Multiple ASIO chips to cure latency issues
Will RME ever produce a sound device that has multiple ASIO chips?
These days alot of people use ASIO to run their studios but at some point latency becomes a problem, this could be less of a problem if the device had multiple ASIO chips so that you could run a number of DAWs in parallel and run channels between them at low latency.
The trouble with the current RME driver is that any DAWs running are all on the same chip so they all contribute to highering the latency.
Modern processors are designed to run multiple parallel processes at the same time, but all audio software only uses the power of one of the cores effectively and the rest get wasted, for instance i can run pretty much any daw at full capacity but the cpu's (Xeon) are running at around 10%, which means i could run another 8 or so programs at the same time and still have head room, but sadly only having one ASIO chip makes this impossible.
UAD have multiple cores for their own FX, why not multiple ASIO.
I would throw money at a card that can do this effectively.
Any thoughts on this anyone?
