I just discovered ASIO (thanks to an answer here on SD).
I've read a bit about it and want to make sure I understand the benefits.
It looks like the chief benefits are:
- Reduced Latency
- Ability to combine several sound cards or external USB Mics to a single program (e.g., Audacity, Goldwave, etc.) . (So if I was recording audio from two such mics :maybe vocals on one and instruments on another, I suppose.
Any other benefits?
What is the benefit of the reduced latency for recording audio (other than reducing potential syncing problems between the multiple mics)?
