M-Audio has just launched a new version of the M-Track and M-Track Plus driver, namely update number 1.0.6, which works only with Microsoft’s Windows 7 and 8 operating systems, on both 32- and 64-bit architectures.
Even though this update comes with a big blank in the “fixed issues/enhancements” section, I can assume that it might implement various improvements regarding performance and stability. However, it provides a few details in the “known issues” area.
Specifically speaking, after you install the driver, the deivce’s ASIO device name will appear as “M-Track Quad ASIO Driver” in all applications, regardless of what M-Track product you have.
In addition to that, he ASIO drivers should be used with all audio applications that support ASIO (such as AIR Ignite). WASAPI style drivers are lower performance and have been found to be unstable in some applications.
The key features of these devices include a versatile array of inputs to provide the best results with any type of audio source as well as low latency monitoring of the input signal.
As for installing this release, simply save and unzip the downloadable package, locate the available setup file and run it, and follow all instructions displayed on-screen for a complete upgrade.
That being said, download M-Audio M-Track/M-Track Plus Driver 1.0.6, apply it on your device, and constantly check our website to be aware when a newer version is available for download.
