ASIO For classic
« on: October 04, 2016, 09:35:30 AM »
A while back I had found an ASIO driver designed specifically for running DAW software in classic mode on OS X.
It was a strange beast and it did actually work with Cubase (that was all I tried it with).
So it was an ASIO driver you would use with whatever classic app you had and it routed directly to the OS X core audio. It did not just redirect to the Sound Manager in classic.  It was only stereo output, no input and due to the nature of OS X and classic, the performance of the DAW was not great. 

I can't find anything on this any more. Does anyone else know anything about this?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

i think that would probably be os-version-specific for earlier versions of OSX (jaguar, panther)
i remember the core midi + core audio took awhile to solidify in the early versions of X

perhaps this is a relative conversation?

if I am remembering correctly I found it shortly after Tiger was released and I think it required Panther.  I'm not 100% sure.

Not really.  Maybe?  This seems more like someone being curious if ASIO exists for OS X and if Cubase on OS X uses it.   What I'm remembering a different kind of beast.
