Multi-client support for one. Most native ASIO drivers are not multi-client and it's a pain.

Regards Scott


Isn't WDM also multiclient?

I have some settings in RME for how many WDM clients to wrap, or similar if I got that right.

Most daws support WDM as I recall - and gotten as good latency with WDM as with ASIO.
And ASIO4ALL make one ASIO from several WDM too.

For those asking why, here's one reason to consider:

Using WASAPI with Windows 10 allows users with laptops to be more portable--you can use your laptop on the go while using your built-in sound card (rather than needing a specialized external sound card), "with low latency". Works great, and most of the built-in sound cards are as good or better than pro sound cards from just 10 years ago.

I'm excited about the Windows 10 native WASAPI driver!! I think it is one area where Microsoft is going in the right direction! :-)

Would have to test it, after working so many years with RME drivers I am really afriad of using anything else. In fact I would that RME released a simple USB stick for DA conversion for on the go production.

in Reaper on Linux I get better results using WASAPI for my USB interface than with ASIO.

This!!! Major reason for more DAWs to support WASAPI. I have a number of soundcards in the studio. Sometimes I just want to fire up the laptop and use reason on the go. Latency makes this a pain, and ASIO wrappers like ASIO4all add another layer of instability. Windows can now do low latency audio on it's own. Wish all DAWs supported this. Reaper is super stable at low latencies using WASAPI Exclusive on my Surface Pro 4.

With onboard sound you have the benefit of low latency with the use of parallel audiostreams from browser and so on. That's a way better solution as ASIO4ALL wich allows only one audiostream at once. Every DAW should support WASAPI.
