Bellingham, WA (October 5, 2005)–Edirol Corporation today announced the release of Version 1.0 drivers for Windows x64. Edirol had previously released beta versions of 64-bit drivers and is now offering fully-supported Version 1.0 drivers to meet Edirol’s standard for driver implementation. The introduction of 64-bit drivers allows Edirol’s user base to take full advantage of their 64-bit hardware.
While most 32-bit software applications will operate on a 64-bit computing system, a true 64-bit driver is required for all hardware peripherals including audio and MIDI interfaces. With the introduction of fully-supported 64-bit drivers for existing interface products, Edirol
continues to support its audio interface driver technology for both the Windows and the Macintosh platforms.
Edirol recently introduced the world’s first USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Drivers for Mac OS X Tiger for the Edirol UA-101 USB 2.0 Audio Interface. Kim Nunney, president of Edirol North America commented, “We are very excited to once again be on the forefront of delivering the next evolution in computer-based music and multimedia production with the introduction of fully supported 64-bit drivers for our interfaces. The potential performance gains of 64-bit computer systems and the extension of the amount of useable physical RAM from 2 Gigabytes to 128 Gigabytes will provide users with a newfound potential for working with CPU and RAM intensive projects.” He continued: “We are proud to be able to support our existing and future Edirol users with the option of experiencing 64-bit computing using their current Edirol interface.”
64-bit drivers are available for the following Edirol Interfaces:
UA-1000, UA-101, UA-25, UA-20, UA-5, UA-3FX, UA-1EX, UA-700, UM-880, UM-550, UM-3, UM-2EX/2, UM-1EX/1SX/1X/1S/1, PCR M1/M30/M50/M80/30/50/80, PC-50, PCR-A30, PCR-1, SD-90/80/20 and M-100FX 64-bit drivers are available for download from www.edirol.net.
