REPOST – OT – Problems with original MOTU 828 on XP

Feb 01 2006 | 2:20 pm

(Will explain my repost in the next email)

Sorry for the OT. This is a problem with my MOTU XP, not MSP, but am hoping
someone has been through this.

I’ve had my MOTU 828 (original version) for many years. Been using it on a
Mac (os9 and osX) no problems.

I now need to use it on an XP machine.

I installed the latest drivers from the MOTU website.

I can only access two channels at a time. In "Sounds and Audio Devices"
control panel and within Max/MSP, my options are limited to selecting a
stereo pair of output and input channels, I don’t see any way to access all
8 analog or all 10 analog/spidf at one time. e.g., I get droplists allowing
me to choose channels 1/2 *or* 3/4 *or* 5/6, etc., but not more than two
channels at a time.

Anyone know how I can access all 8 analog or all 10 analog/spdif channels at

I solved the problem.

The ASIO driver wasn’t properly installed, so MSP was going through the OS’s
sound control panel, not talking directly to the 828.

The installer was confusing — The generic ASIO driver is specifically named
as a "Cubase VST" option. Didn’t realize it wasn’t being installed.
