i’ve had this with the Delta 1010 and Windows 7 in the past, as far as i remember it was due to not having the latest driver version installed. Workaround was to make any ASIO settings before opening Cubase!
I am aware of that. This is not a new problem and until now I haven’t found a solution…maybe RME (or Steinberg) will fix the problem - maybe not.
Until then I’m restarting Cubase everytime I have to change buffer size.
I have the same problem as the OP (Control Panel button in Cubase won’t open the ProFire’s control panel) with my M-Audio ProFire 2626.
I think this is an M-Audio problem.
But I can just open the control panel from the little icon in the system tray (the lower right-hand corner of the task bar in Windows, where the time appears).
I also can’t change the latency while Cubase is running at all. M-Audio disables the control. That just pisses me off. I tried out a Steinberg MR816 and could change the latency no problem. Unfortunately, I don’t OWN the MR816. And honestly there are other things I really like about the ProFire.
I am pretty positive this is specific to M-Audio’s drivers.
I noticed that when I ran the Cubase setup app, the buffer settings in the ProFire 2626 control panel were disabled too. So I kind of feel like some lazy programmer worked around a bunch of crashing bugs related to changing buffer size by scanning the active processes for executables with “Cubase” in the name and disabled those settings.
Same here! But it has been this way since my first M-Audio interface: Firewire Solo.
I think it is M-Audio related, but I’m not sure though. Then again, it’s not really a problem, it’s just annoying. If I’m done recording, I have to close Cubase, start the control panel from M-Audio Profire 610, change buffersize and start Cubase again. I don’t do this very often though. Mostly 1 times a day or something.
I’d like to see it get fixed too, though. But like I said: not a real problem, just annoying!
I use an Audiophile 24/96; I don’t know if this applies to the other M-Audio cards but I suspect it does.
The issue arises in a 64 bit Windows environment because although M-Audio provide a 64 bit driver, the driver control panel is still written in 32 bit. This means that trying to open the ASIO control panel within Cubase does not work.
However, as someone has already pointed out in this thread, it should be entirely possible to open the control panel from the Windows taskbar (lower right of the screen) and change the buffer size of the card from there. I’ve done it this way for years.
