Cannot open wave device anymore.

I have lost the ability to record on wavelab elements v8. I get a message “Cannot open Wave device for recording. Are you sure your audio device supports the currently specified sample rate and/or bit resolution?
Check also if the input of the audio device is in slave or auto-sync mode.” when ever I try to record. Playback is working fine through the selected device.

I am using MME audio device with Dante Virtual sound Card. If I try to switch to ASIO4ALL I lose all my other outputs to yamaha QL desk, which is unworkable.

Have raised a ticket with Steinberg.

Any ideas welcome.


Panic over! Problem solved! In windows privacy settings the permission to allow apps to use a microphone had changed for some reason. Giving Wave Lab access resolved the issue.

Thank you for posting this. I Actually was trying to open it
