Integrations Overview

What types of interfaces do you support?#

SAFE supports audio interfaces of all brands, that work with the Steinberg ASIO or the Windows WASAPI driver. For audio measurements we recommend using the ASIO driver, if possible, as this is the most stable driver, timing wise.

SAFE also support the NI-DAQmx driver for those of your who are using NI data acquisition and signal conditioning.

Devices that support SCPI commands, such as most modern test lab equipment, can be used with SAFE using the NI-VISA driver.

Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP devices can also be read from and configured by SAFE. Drivers are specific depending on the hardware you are using.

No drivers come with an installation of SAFE.
