Thought the AD516 Sound Card was useless, NOT!!! Chris Brenner has written a Driver and reverse engineered it, so now all Amiga users can use it with AHI.
Th Sunrize's AD516 has been one of the most interesting ZII audio boards. Unfortunately, until now, there weren't any drivers of any kind for this card, leaving owners in need for realtime software with the only option to use Studio16, the application developed for this hardware by Sunrize and bundled with the product.
Lack of detailed documetation, and the fact that Sunrize left the market, prevented from taking advantage from more modern non-linear editing software, developed years after Studio16. Until now.
Chris Brenner just relesed his new excellent AHI driver, avalable on aminet, that now allows AHI-compatible applications to access the AD516 A/D D/A converters (for SMPTE support, Studio16 is still the right tool). Several applications have been already tested and work fine.
Early reports about ProStationAudio and this new development say that the driver exhibits low-latency, extremely important to allow using mixing automation and the 30+ realtime DSP effects for ProStationAudio. More info soon, as they arrive.
To donwload the driver, search for "AD516" on aminet. Info about the developer are into the driver archive, don't forget to send him feedback.
