Version 2.94 (FUT 14_106_52_152): TotalMix: Since 2.93(3) ASIO Direct Monitoring had been inactive. Internal Loopback optimized (digital I/Os). (07/2005)

Version 2.93(3) (FUT 14_106_52_152): TotalMix: Performance improved when Matrix window is open. Tooltip is turned off when window is closed via ESC. Tooltip is turned off when mouse is moved quickly across the window border. Graphical problems with 9632 and RPM fixed. General: Plug and Play behaviour of the Settings dialog optimized. Internal bugfix (registry access) which did not cause any trouble so far. (07/2005)

Version 2.93(1) (FUT 14_106_52_152): HDSP series: ASIO offset values added. Dummy GSIF-2 MIDI ports are now fully functional. MME MIDI In and GSIF-2 MIDI In can be used simultaneously. Bluescreen fixed on power-down of certain computers (W2k SP4 Dual CPU). TotalMix: Small error fixed in factory preset of RPM and HDSP 9652. Tooltip no longer sticky when 'Always On Top' is off. Systray context menu improved, new entry 'Matrix'. Matrix window titlebar shows current preset. Digiface: 'Emphasis' is valid for the analog Phones output too. Digiface, Multiface, HDSP 9652, HDSP 9632: Option 'SyncAlign' added to Settings dialog. HDSP 9652: Option 'Word Clock Out: Single Speed' added to Settings dialog. Internal loopback in TotalMix removed - not possible with this card. (06/2005)

Version 2.92: Bugfix Digiface, Multiface, RPM: disabled internal loopback got reactivated by fader movements and MIDI data. HDSP9632: DDS implementation had been incomplete (ASIO), causing several errors. (05/2005)

Version 2.91: TotalMix: Performance improved when MIDI option LC-Display is active. MIDI: Cursor up/down no longer jumps to other channelsDigiface/Multiface only: Quick Access Panel no longer active when only output row is visible. HDSP9632: New hardware (Flash Update 152) with internal loopback, DDS and improved ADAT receiver. DDS added to settings dialog. Internal loopback can be activated via TotalMix. (05/2005)

Version 2.90(1): New TotalMix with Monitor Panel, MIDI support and a lot more improvements. Digiface/Multiface: changed order of AutoSync sources, Word is now on top. Improved ADAT receiver. New option Word Clock Out Single Speed. Digiface/Multiface/RPM: support for internal loopback. With Flash Update Tool 13/51: Digiface/Multiface: Bugfix communication problem at certain sample rates. Note: the MME driver based Host-controlled automatic monitoring (Samplitude, Sequoia, SAWStudio) is no longer supported. (05/2005)

Version 2.831: Improved initialization of Digiface/Multiface/RPM when reconnecting it. Support for HDSP9652 firmware 105. (04/2005)

Version 2.83: Completely rewritten code for loading the mixer settings on boot-up. (03/2005)

Version 2.82 (a): Internal signal error in the RPM hardware caused sample errors on the left channels. TotalMix displays invalid routings, which are generated when changing from single to double speed, as blank field (RPM/Multiface). New TotalMix: 'Link Faders' activates a global stereo control of all faders (hotkey L). (07/2004)

Version 2.82: AutoSync mode now also prevents sample rate changes when ASIO is running in double or quad speed mode. When using multiple CardBus or PCI cards: ASIO can be used even when not all I/O boxes are connected to the installed CardBus/PCI cards. False RPM detection hopefully improved. Bug fix: The setting 'Pref Sync Ref' wasn't used by the hardware. Settings dialog shows up in Systray, even if the CardBus is not inserted when booting the laptop (but TotalMix does not work without a reboot. This mechanism will be changed later to the one of the Fireface). (06/2004)

Version 2.81: 'Always on Top' deactivated in TotalMix caused delayed playback/recording up to freezes of the audio software. (05/2004)

Version 2.80: Floating point calculations in TotalMix could cause a crash of TotalMix. Scrollwheel used in TotalMix causes changed Preset indication. Not initialised variable in the ASIO driver could cause ASIO to stop in multi-client operation. In seldom cases the MIDI driver could cause a freeze of the computer. Bypass mode of the RPM is now defaulting to 'Phono 0 dB' until the driver is loaded. (05/2004)

Version 2.7a: MME playback changed RPM Input 1/2 from Phono to Line. TotalMix: graphics error when using scroll wheel in third row fixed. (04/2004)

Version 2.7: General news, changes and fixes - Driver: Added complete support for the RPM. Full GSIF 2.0 audio support (record and playback). TotalMix settings of HDSP 9632 and HDSP 9652 are automatically reloaded after sleep mode. At first time installation of Multiface/Digiface/RPM a default routing configuration is loaded into the mixer. MME: In AutoSync mode, a request for a different sample rate than the input one (caused a change to Master mode) is no longer supported. ZLM did not work correctly in double speed mode. Digiface only: in double speed mode, sequential start of the record devices caused channel 3/4 to become corrupted. TotalMix: Added vertical scrolling in TotalMix mode, horizontal/vertical scrolling with floating labels in Matrix mode. Added Delete (menu Edit or Del-key). Added scroll-wheel support. Release time of the Level Meters in Double and Quad Speed mode corrected. ASIO Driver: Using more than 2 HDSP devices caused the ASIO channel list to become corrupted.

HDSP 9632 Specific: New firmware with several improvements. Word clock input has been out of phase (180). RMS calculation (TotalMix, HDSP Meter Bridge) did not work correctly on some channels, especially at higher sample rates. SPDIF receiver has not been fully compatible (Tascam DA-30 did not work). Word clock input now supports quad frequency ratio. Word clock output now supports double and quad speed frequency. Frequency indication AES Channel Status on output for quad speed corrected. Driver: Use of ASIO caused the AES (XLR) input to switch to Coaxial (SPDIF). Added word clock output option to Settings dialog. ADAT I/O returns correct error message in quad speed mode. (3/2004)
