This weekend I will get the chance to play around with an audio/midi interface (M-Audio Fast Track Ultra), and a Dell Pent. D 2.8 GHz, 2.0 Go RAM pc running WinXP Pro SP3. Thought it might be interesting to download Pianoteq demo version for trial with a Yamaha PF-1000.
I read that the M-Audio interface provides near-zero latency, so after installing it’s driver can I assume that a download and install of ASIO4ALL is not required?

Also do I require any additional dedicated Yamaha drivers for the above?
Cheers.

No. Different latency.

A zero latency interface means that, say you are singing into a mic, then with this interface you can route the mic's sound direct to headphones without looping through the computer. It means there is a channel to "short cut" the computer and feed the mic direct into the headphones so the singer can hear.

Most of these use a mixer to allow you to mix some computer sound and some direct from the mix so you can her both yourself and the sound from the computer.

The whole purpose of the "zero latency shortcut" is becuase there would likely be a latency if you looped the sound through your PC. The zero lanteny feature allows you to avoid that loop.

Latency is unavoidable but it's OK it it's small.

Chris,
Thanks for this clarification.

Regarding my other query, do I require any additional dedicated Yamaha drivers?

dont use the asio4all drivers you'll get a lot of latency that way because it will try to use generic drivers instead of the device specific ones. use the m-audio drivers (they are all asio), you should get less than 8 milliseconds latency that way. The yamaha needs no drivers, since all it does it send a midi signal. all the drivers are on the m-audio end.

also make sure you listen on the jack on the m-audio not the "line out" from the pc. I wired the lineout from my m-audio into my stereo and usually dont use the line out from my computer

The zero latency thing happens when you use an audio input (like vocals) into your fasttrack, and listen on your direct out, because the signal doesnt have to go into the computer at all to be processed for you to monitor it.
