Using with "ASIO4All v2". FInally got rid of that distortion on low frequencies with default output settings. ASIO Sounds amazing!

Got XMPlay up to 40.mbs ,playing 62 formats and all available visuals.... it is SUPER XMPlay !,......Asio4All ...really makes a difference ..2348 samples @96.000 hz with 3-5% CPU..it is by far the highest quality sound to be had, beats VLC,Winamp,WMP,Foobar,etc. Use the iXMPlay skin exclusively. I am a novice ,but, needed something to do! Have the older 250 watt KlipschPro-Media (in the shop) can't wait to hear the sound !

It does not work good when I play files with 24 bit 192KHz on my E-MU 204 USB

Cannot work with Firefox on playing video. Change to DirectSound, then everything fine. Asio seems not be able to share audio with other programmes.

Works perfect on M-Audio Fast Track Ultra USB.

"Can't initialize ASIO driver" error when trying to use tho instances of XMPlay on different asio chanels. Is there a bug or a feature?
Thank you!

This is a great plugin. I'd always use XMplay over others, and this work perfectly well with the X-Fi.

Thanks for providing us the best we can get from our sound cards.

@initial, you should post about it on the forum at

I certainly have the ASIO drivers installed for my Edirol FA-101.
Unfortunately, the developer doesn't seem to read this thread.
Music sounds good all the same.

Wow nice sound
ESI Juli@ great

ASIO = Audio Stream Input/Output
You wont be able to use the plugin unless you install Asio drivers

Again thanks Lan for plugin updates

#10 - initial commented this file on 2008-01-31, 17:26:30
how does this plugin work? whatever settings I make, it always sounds the same, be it 32 bit 96 kHz or 8 bit 11kHz. With be winamp asio plugin it is only possible to adjust the volume by the equalizer, here the regular volume slider remains in function. How is this possible or where is the difference?
What does "Set hardware sample rate when possible" do, or "optimal resolution (else pad to it)?

With direct sound is ok I could select it and I can hear the difference , but with asio it seems to be the same.What am I doing wrong ??

A-w-e-s-o-m-e. This plug-in makes XMplay unbeatable in the means of comfort, lightweightness and now - superior sound quality. Thank you so much.

Yeah, my AntiVir also killed my xmp-asio.dll. I think the best way should be to report this to Ian and the AntiVir team, as it obviously is a false positive.

#5 - klangfleischer rated this file 5 stars on 2007-07-21, 08:47:07
antivir says, you have an virus inside the asio-dll!!!!
