Atlas drivers

Parent chapter  Previous page  Next page

 

For Windows systems, Atlas is supplied with a driver which provides ASIO and WDM audio connectivity to the device.  This driver is installed when the initial installation is performed.  Thereafter, this connectivity is permanently available.  It is not necessary to run the Atlas Control Panel app for applications to be able to use Atlas; however, the app is needed if any but the most basic control of Atlas's functions is required.

 

The same is true in Mac systems, except that no driver is installed because OS X is able to operate Atlas directly as a USB Audio Device Class 2.0 device to obtain Core Audio functionality.  However, whilst some degree of control is possible from the Mac's Audio MIDI Setup window, the Atlas Control Panel app must still be run to control the majority of the unit's functions.
