· Driver installation
Also you need to understand how to connect MAYA1010 to other external
devices such as MIC, amp, mixer, and recording devices such as MD or DAT
1. Preparation for hardware installation
MAYA1010 PCI card and other components in the computer can easily be
damaged by electrical shock. You need to use an anti-static device that can
discharge the static electricity of your body to avoid potential static damage to
the cards.
1) MAYA1010 PCI card is packaged in an anti static plastic pouch. Do not
open the pouch until you’re ready to install the card.
2) Turn off the computer and remove the power cable from your computer’s
power supply.
3) Remove the cover. Make sure that you have an available PCI slot in your
motherboard to install MAYA1010. Please refer to your computer’s user
manual on how to remove the cover.
4) To avoid possible static shock to the computer parts, discharge it by
touching the computer case or something grounded. We recommend
you to use an anti-static device such as an anti-static wrist band.
5) When you need to hold the MAYA1010 PCI card, please hold it on the
guide or edge of card. Do not grab the card by the board.
2. Installing MAYA1010 PCI card
1) Look for an empty PCI slot. If you do not know which one is a PCI slot,
please read the following:
2) The PCI slot is the most common and is used for a wide range of
devices from the soundcard to the modem. Usually, the PCI slot is the
white-colored slot. It should not be too hard to find the PCI slot for
3) If there is a guide blocking the empty slot, please remove the guide
using the proper screwdriver.
4) Put the MAYA1010 PCI card into the slot and make sure it is placed in
the slot correctly. Insert the card into the slot and then tighten the screw.
Close the case.
5) connect it to the breakout box using the provided cable.
6) Connect the I/O cable’s connector to the MAYA1010 PCI card.
7. Software Installation
After completing the hardware installation, you need to install the Windows
driver. The installation steps in Windows 98SE, Windows 2000 and Windows
XP vary, but they are similar between the different versions of Windows. The
installation steps shown below are based on Windows XP installation.
Note: Depending on your system, you may need the Windows installation CD.
Note: MAYA1010 installs several drivers during its installation process.
Windows will repeatedly prompt you to reboot the system, but unless the driver
installation is completely finished, DO NOT reboot the system. After complete
installation, restart your computer.
1. Turn on your computer. Windows will automatically detect a new device and
prompt you with Found New Hardware Wizard screen. Choose “Install from a
list or specific location” and click Next.

10. DirectWIRE 3.0
1. What is DirectWIRE?
DirectWIRE is a 100% purely digital wire!
DirectWIRE is a driver technology, developed by AUDIOTRAK, which can be
used for routing audio streams internally within applications using E-WDM Audio
MIDI drivers, exclusively developed by AUDIOTRAK.
With the DirectWIRE router, an application can record from other application’s
audio outputs without external wiring or any loss of data while they are running
at the same time.
DirectWIRE also allows you to easily rip any audio stream in real time by
transferring data through DirectWIRE from MP3s, live On-line Broadcasts, OnDemand content, and more.
2. DirectWIRE Panel
Click on DirectWIRE on the MAYA1010 panel. The DirectWIRE panel window as
shown below will appear.
The number along the row represents the number of the input or output port.
The columns represent inputs and outputs (on and off) of the respective drivers.
Patch the virtual cables from one point to another as you drag your mouse.
- 22 -
INPUT column is a new feature of DirectWIRE 3.0. It's used to route signals
from the card's hardware inputs. With MAYA1010, from INPUT 1 to 8 are
identical to the each left and right channels of the analog input signal. And
INPUT 9 and 10 are the left and right channels of the digital input.
MME column represents general application's I/O:
Ex.) WinAmp, WaveLab (non ASIO mode), Cakewalk, Audition, Vegas, etc.
WDM column represents Multi-MME application’s I/O:
Ex.) SONAR (WDM/KS mode), PowerDVD, WinDVD, etc.
ASIO column represents ASIO application’s I/O:
Ex.) Cubase, Logic, Reason, Nuendo, SONAR (ASIO mode), Samplitude, etc.
GSIF column represents GSIF applications like GigaStudio.
NOTE: Some applications support multiple driver modes.
3. DirectWIRE Examples
NOTE: Please setting DirectWIRE up first before starting application program..
1) Recording from WinAmp(MME) to WaveLab(MME)
Caution; If you want to record what's played back in Winamp, but don't
want to hear the sound, you should click the OUT button in the MME
section so that it changes to “OUT”
- 23 -
2) Recording from WinAmp(MME) to SONAR(WDM)
3) Recording from WinAmp(MME) to Cubase, Logic, Nuendo(ASIO)
4) Recording from GigaStudio(GSIF) to SONAR(WDM)
- 24 -
5) Recording from GigaStudio(GSIF) to Cubase(ASIO)
6) Let's say you want to quickly dub some vocal over an audio track. It's
very simple with DirectWIRE 3.0. You just have to make connections
similar to these.
