MSP not receiving audio from recognized interface

    Apr 29 2006 | 10:54 am
    I have an Alesis I|O 2 here. MSP knows it's there (DSP status) but appears to receive no audio.
    Garage Band has no problems, so there's nothing up with the interface.
    Any guesses ?

      I had a similar problem with my audiofire8. It would show up in the DSP window, but where it shows the input channel and output channels selected, it just said OFF, and no audio was going in or out. I would select a different driver, then reselect my audiofire8 driver, and then the ins and outs would display properly, and everything would work fine.
      I also had to download the older drivers for my interface, as the newer ones werent working at all for me. I know this prolly doesnt help but good luck.

      I should have mentioned the other hardware, which is a mac mini. So no drivers - it's supposed to be class compliant, it says on the Alesis website.
      This is the first time I've used a USB interface instead of Firewire. Does USB have its own problems ?
      I tried swapping between the Alesis and mac audio hardware, but to no avail.
