peripheral is listed as “kernel streaming”, it will operate in Direct Sound mode when listed
From now on, unless the VAUGHAN is disconnected or settings are changed again,
VAUGHAN is the audio peripheral all audio programs will use when operating in direct sound
7.1.2. Configuring for Kernel Streaming with Windows XP
Kernel Streaming has no standard setting in Windows XP. KS must be selected in the
specific player you choose to use.
For example, when using FooBar, with VAUGHAN connected to the PC and USB input
selected, go to the File/Preferences/Playback /Output tab and select “KS: M2Tech 384/32
DAC” as output device. Other players will require different settings (see section 8).
7.1.3. Using VAUGHAN
VAUGHAN in both Kernel Streaming and Direct Sound mode.
When VAUGHAN is selected as predefined audio peripheral, it’s possible to use it in Kernel
Streaming mode, too, with a caveat. When using it in KS mode, it is necessary that no
other application accesses the VAUGHAN in DS mode. If this happens, Windows XP’s
Kernel Mixer takes control of VAUGHAN’s driver and from then on, no KS application can
access the VAUGHAN unless the PC is restarted or the VAUGHAN connection to the PC is
cycled or another input is selected on the VAUGHAN, then returning on the USB input.
