Chicago, IL - APRIL 20, 2006 - CEntrance, a leader in professional audio technology, today released their "Universal Driver" for FireWire™ audio interfaces. The Windows™ audio software features unique technology that enables consumers to combine FireWire audio interfaces from various manufacturers into one, feature-rich audio system. Formerly incompatible audio devices can now record and play together in one studio setup.

The CEntrance Universal ASIO Driver's unique technology features multi-host and multi-device capability. Project studio owners and musicians are now able to record and play audio using multiple devices with one music software application, or multiple applications with one interface- a level of flexibility previously unavailable under Microsoft Windows operating systems. The CEntrance Universal Driver is ASIO compatible, features low-latency audio performance and supports 44.1 through 192kHz at 24-bit resolution. The product is offered for sale directly to consumers from the CEntrance website at $79.95US.

"We've worked very hard on the release of this first version of the Universal Driver so that it supports several of the most popular FireWire audio interfaces," said Michael Goodman, Managing Director of CEntrance. "We have tremendous industry support and plan to update the software regularly, adding new audio devices to truly create a simplified environment for the Windows audio and MIDI software user."

The CEntrance Universal Driver features easy installation and robust performance while maintaining low latency for easier recording and monitoring. CEntrance developed the software to be compatible with the majority of commercially available audio hardware, including Apogee, Behringer, Focusrite, Mackie, M-Audio, Miglia and Presonus, and most ASIO host audio software applications. Support for other audio interfaces is constantly added. Please check the company's website for an up-to date list of hardware and software compatibility: http://www.CEntrance.com/products/ud/
