Unsupported Windows audio driver types (WASAPI, WaveRT)

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: Windows Vista, Windows 7


Certain Windows audio driver types cannot be selected in Live.


  • WASAPI drivers, introduced with Windows Vista are currently unsupported. There are no plans to introduce support, as the drivers are rarely used.
  • WaveRT drivers, introduced with Vista as well, are neither supported. We don´t see much benefit in supporting these drivers, as they only work with certain internal soundcards.


Use the appropriate ASIO driver for the soundcard/interface, or ASIO4ALL for internal soundcards.
