|Audio Interface||7.1 sound card embedded in motherboard|
|Input Source||Stereo source|
|Output||8 analog channels|
We want to use Ekio to filter the audio stream emitted by an external analog stereo source. Ekio transforms the input stream into an output stream composed of 8 analog channels, which are sent to height amplifiers.
The sound card we use has no native ASIO drivers. So we will use ASIO4ALL. This is a generic ASIO driver that works with almost any sound card on the market.
If ASIO4ALL is not already installed on your computer, please download it here and install it.
The solution proposed is the following:
It is performed with the following links:
The external stereo source is connected to the LINE IN input of the sound card.
The ASIO4ALL driver performs this connection automatically. All physical inputs are directed to the ASIO inputs. So there is no special configuration required here.
Within Ekio, we start by creating a new config (File/New). Then we select the ASIO4ALL driver.
We see the ASIO4ALL system tray icon ( ) appearing at the bottom right of the screen. We click on it to open it's configuration window. Among the WDM devices available, we select the sound card we want to use.
Within Ekio, we can now create two inputs and select the two channels of interest (1 and 2).
We create height outputs and select the height channels of interest (1 to 8).
The ASIO4ALL driver performs this connection automatically. All ASIO outputs are directed to the physical outputs. So there is no special configuration required here.
Analog outputs 1 to 8 are connected to height amplification channels.
That's it ! Don't forget to go to the Routing tab to create links between the inputs and the outputs. Now you can create your filters and click on the playback button to start the audio processing.
