AD516 Sound Card AHI Driver Now On Aminet
« on: April 28, 2002, 06:54:42 PM »
Sunrize's AD516 has been one of the most interesting ZII audio boards. Unfortunately, until now, there weren't any drivers of any kind for this card, leaving owners in need for realtime software with the only option to use Studio16, the application developed for this hardware by Sunrize and bundled with the product.

Lack of detailed documetation, and the fact that Sunrize left the market, prevented from taking advantage from more modern non-linear editing software, developed years after Studio16. Until now.

Chris Brenner just relesed his new excellent AHI driver, avalable on aminet, that now allows AHI-compatible applications to access the AD516 A/D D/A converters (for SMPTE support, Studio16 is still the right tool). Several applications have been already tested and work fine.

Early reports about ProStationAudio and this new development say that the driver exhibits low-latency, extremely important to allow using mixing automation and the 30+ realtime DSP effects for ProStationAudio. More info soon, as they arrive.

To donwload the driver, search for "AD516" on aminet. Info about the developer are into the driver archive, don't forget to send him feedback.

This driver is really helpful. I found that most
of the utilities accessing AHI through the AD516 Driver
work a lot more smoothly without missing a note no matter
what I throw at it (Amp w/EQ; Frogger; Rival; etc). It'd
be a tough argument to say out with the AD516 even
as old as it is. It's a great card still. Super for
grabbing all that vinyl to carry over to CDs!! And it holds
it own recording the line outs of my Fostex RD8 tracks
too! Great work, Chris!!
