USB Audio 2.0 Class Driver for Windows

NOTE: The driver described on this page is.not for use by end users.It will not help solve any problems you may experience with a consumer device such as a webcam, camcorder, card reader, external sound card, etc. Thesycon’s device drivers are software components intended to be used by hardware or software manufacturers to create end products. XMOS guys, we would love to hear you comments on this. I am pretty sure it's xCore 200 reference firmware. Its USB related part, to be more specific. Some very basic support of W10 would be nice, to keep Thesycon driver licensing business on truck. I respect both Thesycon interest and our customers interest too.

Thesycon’s USB audio class driver TUSBAudio targets USB audio devices for professional and semi-professional use and highest quality audiophile HiFi systems. The driver supports devices which are compliant to the USB Audio 2.0 or USB Audio 1.0 device class specification. The driver provides an ASIO 2.3.1 compliant software interface and integrates with Windows as a standard WDM/DirectX compatible sound device. If the device provides MIDI features the driver exposes standard Windows MIDI ports.

To meet professional audio requirements, the audio class driver is optimized for low latency and low CPU load. Buffer depths can be adjusted by the user to optimize settings for a given computer. The driver implements a transparent (bit-perfect) playback and recording data path.

The USB Audio 2.0 Class Driver for Windows implements the USB Audio 2.0 and 1.0 device class specification and is independent of the specific silicon and firmware solution used in a given device. As long as the hardware and firmware implement the descriptors, endpoints and requests defined in the class specification the driver should work. However, there are some requirements and assumptions as listed below.

Thesycon Sound Cards & Media Devices Driver Download For Windows 10
  • A device can implement a playback data path, a recording data path, or both.
  • Both playback and recording path must be driven by the same sample clock source (as required by ASIO).
  • An Audio 2.0 device must implement at least one clock source unit. If there is more than one clock source then a clock selector unit must be implemented as well.
  • The driver supports the asynchronous, synchronous and adaptive endpoint synchronization model.
  • If there is a recording path (IN endpoint) then the driver uses the incoming sample stream as clock reference to generate the outgoing stream (playback path).
  • A playback-only device with an asynchronous OUT endpoint must implement a feedback endpoint.
  • Optionally, a device can implement a feature unit to expose volume and mute controls.

Our software is purely designed and implemented by our team in Germany - no outsourcing. Technical support is provided directly by the developers.

Current Version: 5.0

The free evaluation version of the TUSBAudio driver works for an interval of 60 days without any limitation. After that evaluation period has expired, the driver stops working.

NOTE: The driver described on this page is *not for use by end users*. It will not help solve any problems you may experience with a consumer device such as a webcam, camcorder, card reader, external sound card, etc. Thesycon’s device drivers are software components intended to be used by hardware or software manufacturers to create end products.

For each USB device model an official USB vendor ID (VID) is required. Vendor IDs must be unique and will be assigned by the USB Implementers Forum (www.usb.org). Registration fees will be charged.

Thesycon owns a USB vendor ID and provides a subset of product IDs (PID) to licensees of Thesycon drivers.

To set up digital audio on your graphics card

  1. From the NVIDIA Control Panel navigation tree pane, under Display, click Set up digital audio to open the associated page.

    The Set Up Digital Audio page lists the NVIDIA GPUs in the system that have audio-capable display connections, and then lists those connections (HDMI, DisplayPort, or DVI). For each connection, this page lists the audio-capable displays that will appear as audio devices in the Windows Sound panel, based on default or previous selections.

    Depending on the hardware support and displays connected, you can change the selections as described in step 2.

  2. Verify displays that will appear as audio devices in the Windows Sound settings as follows:

    • HDMI display (whether connected to the HDMI or DisplayPort connector): Click the list arrow and either select the display or select Turn off audio.

    • DisplayPort display connected to an HDMI connector: Click the list arrow and either select the display or select Turn off audio.

    • DisplayPort display connected to a DisplayPort connector: When there are more than one display connected through the connector but the graphics card supports only one audio stream per connector, then click the list arrow and select the display that you want to appear as an audio device in the Windows Sound panel.

    • In all other cases the listed DisplayPort displays will appear in the Windows Sound panel and no other changes can be made.

  3. Click Apply when done.

  4. Click Open Windows Sound Settings.

    The Microsoft Windows Sound panel opens, from which you can configure your system's audio output.
