hardware / driver problems [win]

July 12, 2007 | 9:57 pm

hi.

some users of a project i’m developing at the moment reported problems with some audio hardware on windows. the behaviour they told is clear and simple: "there is no signal!"

i use [adstatus driver] to set the driver to use.

the troubles are propably driver-related, and could be fixed in one case with the asio4all driver…

the cards they reported are:

- marian trace d4
(http://www.marian.de/en/products/trace_d4)

- digigram vx222 v2
(http://www.digigram.com/products/getinfo.php?prod_key=12400)

both are professional broadcast stuff, so i thought, that this should work fine… (yah, if you think it should… ;) )

does anybody here has experience with those, or similar cards?

are there some known cards with which max has problems? (or vice versa?)

which audio card with symetric audio output is save to use?
some ideas, experiences?

or does cycling say: msp~ runs with every card which runs under windows?

thanks for any input.

greets
inx

* You may try to change the driver in the "Options" > "DSP status" window

* (probably) sound cards by Digidesign should not work so well with Max (and with any non-Avid software)

* At least the RME sound cards that I tested on Windows (Fireface, Multiface) work great with Max. Actually you shouldn’t have any problem with standard sound cards …

* The sound card itself is often not a problem. The most difficult thing is to get a working computer/OS/sound card combination.
