Hi, so the Japanese drivers dont work, but when I try to use any software or drivers for xd05 like the “Xmos stereo driver” or the “firmware update” utility it doesnt detect any device. But somehow I am able to install the Xduoo software tool which lets me select the “buffer size” and enable or disable “safe mode”. When I view the software it says “ASIO IS NOT ACTIVE” I’ve tried many ASIO tools like ASIOtoWASAPI or KernelStreamingASIO or ASIO4ALL. None of them work, ASIO4ALL only detects WDM devices listed and will enable ASIO for the listed WDM device but perhaps the problem I am having is that the XDUOO XD05plus isnt verified signed drivers or has now microsoft windows drivers. theres a chance it maybe might work if i disable windows driver signing and force in older drivers for the XD05 maybe? is there some way to fix this and get proper WDM windows 10 drivers to allow for ASIO for every device and not just rely on Audio workstation software to use special drivers to force ASIO output regardless of the device that isnt hardware specific as thats less good and only usable within the one program? I just want to enable ASIO for every device for entire operating system at the driver level and use higher quality thesycon drivers while I’m at it. What steps can I take? Since the Xduoo XD05 doesnt get detected by any drivers/software I’m wondering if I bought online from overseas they maybe flashed some wrong firmware or virus and made it so it cant be updated? how can i test for this?
I forgot to mention my serial number of my xd05plus is 039 or something and is not within the range that requires firmware update. It wont let me when I tried.
The drivers in the link you provided work but are not as good and are less features.
The Thesycon drivers allow support for “midi” and “32bit float”
The drivers that you just linked to are i believe the Xcore USB driver for Xmos
see the difference in the following table here from xmos website:
With the XD05 I own I can got to burson audio website or any other number of Xmos DAC AMP manufacturers and download their Xmos thesycon driver and get a slightly better sound. However the latest purchase I made the XD05plus doesnt work with thesycon drivers. If I use the generic Xmos Xcore USB audio driver theres a small difference in sound and features as shown above on the xmos website. The http://www.xduoo.co.jp/driver/ website makes the thesycon drivers available too so the xduoo company should be aware of them and able to get it licensed and or working with it somehow.
Its maybe just a problem of the thesycon drivers not being made for the newer Xmos USB chip XU208 which maybe is a different model to the previous model of XD05. I need Xduoo to update the thesycon USB driver and Thesycon control panel probably.
