Well, as you know, I think that ASIO is the right direction to go, in
Windows, for professional audio.
I have not a lot of available time but I'd like to try to develop the ASIO
interfacing to pd, asap.
As Karl said the first problem is the licencing issue.
The licence says:
1. Steinberg hereby grants to the Licensee a non-exclusive, worldwide,
nontransferable license during the term of this agreement to use the ASIO
Interface Technology solely:
(i) for the development of ASIO Drivers and/or for the
development of an application that can host ASIO Drivers,
(ii) to publish a product under his own name that is using parts
or all of the Licensed Software Developer Kit.
2. The Licensee has no permission to sell, licence, give-away
and/or distribute the ASIO Interface technology or parts of it in anyway,
on any medium, including the Internet, to any other person, including
sub-licensors of the Licensee or companies where the Licensee has any
involvement. This includes re-working this specification, or
reverse-engineering any products based upon this specification.
3. The Licensee recognises the value of the goodwill
associated with the mark ASOP Technology and acknowledges that such goodwill
exclusively belongs to the benefit of Steinberg and belongs to Steinberg.
The Licensee warrants that it will not use the mark ASIO Technology on
promotional merchandise , with the exception of demo versions of any of his
product making use of this SDK. The Licensee warrants that it will not use
the mark ASIO Technology on or in connection with products obscene,
pornographic, excessively violent, or otherwise in poor taste.
4. If the Licensee is developing a product, that is using
parts or all of the Licensed Software Developer Kit, and this product is not
published under his own name but will be published by another company, the
Licensee is under the obligation to inform the publisher of the resulting
product, that he too must be a party to this Licensing Agreement. The
publisher has to completely agree with the ASIO SDK Licensing Agreement. If
the publisher is not in agreement with these conditions, the publisher is
not allowed to distribute this product which is using parts or all of the
Licensed Software Developer Kit.
So I ask to myself and to the list how could we consider distribute the code
which implements the interfacing to Asio ?
