System Requirements

Certified Windows Operating Systems (OS)

The ASIO Driver has been tested and qualified on Windows 7 and Windows 10 Professional 64 bit.
Windows 8.1 is no longer supported since V11.0.2 Build 3156.

Which Windows operating system am I running ?

RAVENNA requires that the MERGING+NADAC is connected to a Gigabit Ethernet port 

 

The ASIO driver is NOT supported under XP or Vista or any 32bit OS version. 

  • The MERGING+NADAC RAVENNA ASIO driver supports up to 8fs (384 kHz, DXD or DSD64, DSD128 & DSD256) 
  • MERGING+NADAC will follow the Sampling rate changes provided by the ASIO host.
  • The ASIO Driver is not multi-client. I.e. it cannot be used with multiple applications at the same time. Only one application at a time can use the ASIO Driver on the same system.
  • A separate sound card for other Windows applications is recommended
