what do you mean by standalone? all of their stuff is tied to their proprietary hardware.

your dreaming mate, i wish it was possible. You'll need a better soundcard with ASIO built in or buy a external soundcard such as a line6 POD. If you want to be a cheap ass, look at the lightsnake cable....but i still think they have some latency.

uhh there is a general ASIO driver available (ASIO4All) but it won't work with Digidesign stuff, only Digidesign hardware will.
