How can I obtain the quality sound I hear when asio4all v2 is enabled on my DAW onto a mp3 or wav file??

When asio4all v2 is enabled in a DAW, the quality is so much better it sounds clear, louder when it's not, and as if the track has been mixed and mastered! laugh.gif

So how to get that sound that sound I hear on a media file? We're in 2012 there has to be a way! dry.gif

Rendering a track has nothing to do with your sound card or driver so I can rule that out. So I can try to record the sound asio4all is playing. I tried recording the analog sound with a audio interface on a different computer, and although I was successful the quality on the recorded track wasn't the same, it was not as clear as the original track. sad.gif where asio4all was playing.

So I can try to record digitally on another DAW using with a Virtual Audio Cable where all transfers are made digitally, providing NO sound quality loss (a bitperfect streaming). dry.gif

I use FL Studio as my main DAW where asio4all is enabled, and Reaper as my secondary DAW where I want to record the track. If I can find a way to record on Reaper the track that is playing on FL Studio while asio4all is enabled would I record the quality I'm pursuing?

If not what can I do to obtain that sound quality played back by asio4all v2? I couldn't get Virtual Audio Cable does not detect asio4all v2. dry.gif

Please Help any suggestions are great!

^ That certainly is possible.

Also keep in mind that ASIO4All uses WASAPI devices in exclusive mode (or so it seems, at least). The same is not true for other APIs, which run in shared mode. The combination of MME out + Win7 + mismatched sample rates in software output and sound device could be fairly deadly, for example - there is a bug in Win7 that erroneously causes (super crappy) linear interpolation to be used in this case, rather than the fairly decent resampler in the audio stack. A hotfix is available.

In this particular case I'd look into getting the aforementioned ReaRoute or an equivalent software routing solution to work as it would be exactly what's needed. Look at support forums - I can't imagine that noone else would have had the same problem. Otherwise one would have to wonder whether it's not a PBKAC (e.g. option overlooked during installation or whatever).
