Awhile back, I found a tool for connecting to ASIO applications and dumping the raw audio data to STDIO so it could be captured or converted with a tool like FFmpeg. However, I don't know the name of it. Do you happen to know the name of this utility, or is there another way to export live ASIO raw samples?

Was that in Windows, or something like WineASIO? –  leftaroundabout Jan 2 at 1:38
It was in Windows. I didn't even know ASIO worked in Wine, but that's good to know that it does! –  Brad Jan 2 at 1:44
I don't have an answer, but I am genuinely curious what potential application/niche (or problem you are hoping to resolve) this sort of workflow serves. Since ASIO is requires dedicated "ownwership" of the hardware, do you want to have multiple computers/VMs running independently and then {magic} to combine them on a separate machine through STDIO? –  horatio Jan 2 at 16:48
@horatio Two projects... the first is for internet radio encoding. I've written some software that handles streaming internet radio, but I am not familiar with the ASIO API. I thought that before I invest a bunch of time in hacking through it, I could find something that already does the ASIO heavy lifting. Edcast ASIO meets the general need here, but is quite buggy as it was never finished. The second project is a browser extension for connecting web apps to ASIO. Obviously there would be latency issues here, but it could still work for applications where latency isn't a large concern. –  Brad Jan 2 at 20:01
