The Joplin 384/32 ADC is a leading edge design, actually, it is beyond leading edge. In fact, while it’s able to operate up to 384kHz on USB, the software available at the moment of introducing the product was not able to cope with this feature: all free and even commercial softwares only worked up to 192kHz.
But things are changing …
We know now of one package which is able to use the Joplin up to its frequency limit in ASIO mode. It’s an audio analyzer software for Windows written by the Russian technician Shmelyoff. You can download the package from http://shmelyoff.nm.ru/. It also includes a simple wave recorder. The package is not free but it’s not expensive.
M2tech has prepared a patch for the famous free package Audacity to extend its operation up to 384kHz. The patch is already part of the source code distribution. Users with programming skills can download it and compile it in their computer to obtain an executable which is able to work with the Joplin up to 384kHz.
The next Amarra version, to be released soon, will be able to work up to 384kHz in both recording and playback.
STOP! Latest news while writing this Blog ….
Start spreading the news: I’ve just had a feedback from our Dutch distributor and dear friend Herman Van Den Dungen about a professional audio tool which is capable of recording @384kHz in ASIO mode: it’s the Magix Samplitude Pro (http://pro.magix.com/en/samplitude/functions/recording.469.html). Joplin users with Windows can download a full-feature free 30 days demo from http://dl03.magix.net/trial_samplitudeprox_int_dlm.exe?cookietest=1.
We’ll be glad to give you more news as soon as they’ll come out. And that is already before the original blog text has been published. Marco writes the following:
Herman strikes again: a new feedback about another audio tool able to record @ 384 kHz: it’s Wavelab 7 by Steinberg (http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/wavelab.html). The full-feature version is 384kHz-capable.
