I put LE5 on my PC (Windows XP service pack 3), yesterday. Bought it with a Lexicon Alpha Studio USB interface.
How do I set the thing up - it’s very frustrating knowing I just need to click on the right thing, or load the right option to get it all working.
For the life of me I can’t get the inputs & outputs configured - when I start the LE5 software up a window opens on the screen headed “Missing Ports”.
It has the Alpha ASIO direct duplex showing against each of 4 lines/ports, with text against each line as follows:-
1 IN Unmapped
2 IN Unmapped
1 OUT Unmapped
2 OUT Unmapped.
I can open the LE5 by closing this window, but there is no input to the recording software.
I have gone into Control Panel/Sounds & Audio devices & changed the setting from the Realtek AC97 to the Lexicon Alpha In/Out for both Sounds & Recording, and the result is that you can listen via the Apha interface headphone socket to Youtube etc., but I can’t get a signal in or (therefore) out of the recorder - yes the USB Alpha is “on” - you can plug a guitar in the front & strum & hear it on the direct output on headphones, but that is about it.
Can anyone help please?
I have looked a the manual that came with it - this is however for LE4 - so not the same(?) I’ve also looked at the Help on screen, but it makes even less sense to me. I looked at the “Tutorials” & “Projects” that came with LE5 - it says “Drag these to your computer so that you can run them”. I did this, but when I try to open them I get a little Window saying “This is a read only file”…
I really don’t get this.
Any help most gratefully received.
Is there perhaps an online facility to have live chat with the guys at Steinberg to resolve this?
