This driver is currently compatible with the Roland UA30 and the Swissonic USB Studio D. (Swissonic has licensed this driver and it is available from their website.)

This driver includes " USB-audio support for ASIO compatible applications like Cubase, Logic Audio, etc."

Some of the features it offers are:

- 32KHz, 44.1 KHz and 48 KHz sampling rate support
- 16 bit, 20 bit and 24 bit sample resolution possible
- ASIO 2 support and ASIO 1 compatible
- Dithering (e.g. for use of a 16bit input within a 24bit application, or vice versa)

According to the information on the site: "If you buy the driver, you're qualified for the next updates, next one's scheduled for the beginning of July 2000." and will include "Support for almost every interface on the market, True hot-plugging, Support for multiple USB-audio interfaces plugged into the same system."

Hmmm, MR is currently preparing a review of the Swissonic Studio D and so far we haven't discovered any issues. We would be interested to hear from anyone using the Roland UA30 with this USB-ASIO driver.

US-428 Controller

"A whole new product for a whole new generation of musicians. The US-428, designed in collaboration between TASCAM and Frontier Design Group, adds the ease of analog-style inputs, transport and EQ controls to your computer-based MIDI/Hard Disk recording system. And it comes bundled with professional sequencing software. But here's the best part: because it's a USB device, you can hot-plug it to your PC or tools, no cards to install."

Tascam reports the US-428 Controller will be available in May 2000 at a U.S. list price of $599.

The Next Generation
You've all probably read a lot about the new iMacs. You also know that it was somewhat surprising for Apple to split the product into three variations; Blueberry on a shoestring, Flavors with DV and the #1 iMac choice (for now) iMacDV SE.

MR's Associate Editor and Spin Director Cris Dunnam has his first take (and lust@heart) for what he calls to be the future of home project studios; thanks to FireWire. Check out "Let me stand next to your Fire . . . for under$2k!"
