LynxONE / LynxTWO / L22 / AES16 Software Compatibility List
This chart details compatibility of the LynxTWO/L22/AES16 cards with a variety of popular software applications. The LynxONE is not represented in this list. The LynxONE supports MME and ASIO applications in Windows and ASIO applications is Mac OS9. There is no DirectSound support for the LynxONE in Windows 2000/XP, so applications that require DirectSound should be avoided.

In Windows, there are two driver packages that are available concurrently, the Version 1 and Version 2 drivers. In cases where one or the other is required, or offers improved functionality, that is specified in the "Notes" column. For applications that require DirectSound support the Version 2 driver should be used.

In general, testing involved the most current application versions at the time that the page was updated and the most current Lynx driver and firmware revisions. This list is not intended to be a compatibility guarantee. It is only a list of software we have tested in our compatibility lab. You should check with your software vendor to insure compatibility with our products.
