ESI starts shipping the DuaFire audio interface

ESI have finally utilised their famous EWDM technology in a FireWire Audio interface. Now you can use driver interfaces like ASIO 2.0, GSIF 2.0, MME and WDM simultaneously with the same features that made ESI’s PCI audio interfaces famous. Of course, EWDM for FireWire also provides the DirectWIRE technology the virtual digital patchbay and support for very low latency values (as low as 1.5ms or even less).

DuaFire is an ideal mobile recording interface for both laptops and desktop computers. It has flexible inputs that allow you to record from a variety of different sources.
