John Shield has released version 1.2 of WDM ASIO Link Driver, which now offers multichannel sound support.
Utilising a virtual WDM sound card, this driver allows you to listen or record windows audio from your ASIO driver or host program. You can make the windows audio appear as an input into the host application, or monitor windows audio as an ASIO output bypassing the host application.
Run your DAW in ASIO mode and still listen to windows audio. It’s also possible using the Link driver, to grab your total ASIO output and feed it back into the ASIOVAD stereo mix making it recordable by live windows streaming applications (i.e. live broadcast, voice chat programs).
Changes in WDM ASIO Link Driver v1.2
- Can now route all 8 channels into host ASIO inputs (was previously limited by the number of real ASIO device inputs).
- Substantial improvements to timing code making sound more robust under heavy CPU or when running on slower machines.
- GUI improvements and more info displayed.
- Auto check for updates (free updates too).
The WDM ASIO Link Driver for Windows is available to purchase for $14.95 USD.

Propellerhead just has capped off its tremendously successful Music Making Month, a series of activities that spanned the entire month of May to inspire and help people with their music creating endeavors.
During the month, Propellerhead held 25 live streaming interviews, clinics and Q/A sessions plus an additional dozen tutorials and videos with music professional and insiders on topics as varied as song inspiration and lyric writing to synthesis techniques and mixing/effects tricks to promotional ideas and placement opportunities. All sessions and materials are now archived and can be viewed at: www.propellerheads.se/mmm
“This was a great opportunity realized—to give back to our community by offering them access to the music people, knowledge and resources that circulate in and around Propellerhead,” said Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO. “We’ve been amazed how much the community itself added—making the live sessions networking events unto themselves through chat, links and other real-time conversations.”
