Sound Devices has released an ASIO driver capable of streaming 32-bit float USB audio to compatible DAWs on Windows 10. The driver is compatible with the MixPre II Series, comprising the MixPre-3 II, MixPre-6 II, and MixPre-10 II audio recorders and USB audio interfaces. The MixPre II Series are the only USB audio interfaces that support 32-bit float recording and playback on MacOS Catalina and Windows 10. 32-bit float USB audio allows for unparalleled dynamic range and flexibility in a DAW.
Sound Devices regularly publishes articles on the workings of 32-bit float, including an explanation of the MixPre II hardware that supports the feature. An analysis on the mathematical principles that allow 32-bit float to capture 1528dB of dynamic range has been read over 6000 times. Sample files are available on the website for curious consumers.
