MH dev team, realistically, is there ever going to be a Windows driver for these interfaces? It really doesn't make sense for there not to be, and many of us use both platforms in the studio, especially those of us doing VR, which is poorly supported on the mac platform.

Just a question about this Bj, I also have 3 x ULN8's in my main room, and we want to use Windows machines soon too. The USB streaming only shows 8 IO's? How would one address this? Considering we're using the monitor controller with 16 different speakers as it is, and we often work at 96k. Thoughts?

Win and Mac . Workaround since many many years here , is to make use of the ULN/ LIOs on Win10 by connecting AES/ EBU with PCIe Cards and sync with WC.

ASIO4ALL is simply not practical if it comes to sample buffers < 512.

This really is a painful way to 'fix' this issue. It's really time MH made a workable Windows driver for this system. Agreed ASIO4ALL is not a great driver.

As much as I like and respect Metric Halo and his owner and have trusted it for nearly 2 decades, the (non-) communication on the subject is beyond my understanding.

BJ says nothing about this topic and it may be that in beautiful Safety Harbour FL, and also (I may say this) from a certain age not everything has the same priority and passion as 20 years ago. But a reasonable answer on whether at all on a ASIO Windows driver is in progress would show at least some politeness and respectfulness to his customers who would need to work on both systems, MacOs and Win. But well, enough blubbering. Laughing
