AudioScience will debut seven products at the 2006 NAB Radio Show in Dallas.
The ASI6000 series is being extended with the ASI6500 line of PCI sound cards. The ASI6500 series is smaller and faster; the company says it has more functionality than the equivalent ASI6000 card. Models are the ASI6544, ASI6522 and ASI6514 with both balanced analog and AES/EBU I/O, and the analog-only ASI6540 and ASI6520.
Rounding out the ASI5000 series of linear PCM sounds cards is the ASI5020, an analog-only PCI card with two stereo inputs and outputs.
New in the software department, AudioScience is showing its ASIO driver. Licensed from Steinberg Media Technogies, the ASIO driver allows AudioScience cards to provide low-latency multi-channel recording and playback when used with applications like Adobe Audition 2.0, Steinberg Cubase and Cakewalk Sonar. The ASIO driver will be integrated into both the WAVE and WDM drivers operating under Windows 2000 or XP.
