Thank you for your reply,
OK, so I turned off the direct monitoring. Nothing happened, same thing just no more monitoring.
SO, Then I decided to import an audio track too see if it would even play back.
I inserted the audio track and hit play… No audio coming out either. I have pictures showing the inputs set up to input 1 and the outputs to output 1/2 which would be stereo.
I uninstalled then re-installed the drivers today, as last time my computer did not prompt me to restart (found this to be a bit odd). After another installation, windows showed one of the popup bubbles stating it was installing the driver software, then saying it was ready to use (found this odd too, thought i just installed that?). Then my computer prompted me to restart and i happily did thinking this would solve my problems. It did not… still back to square one. I did some searching through the manuals and found installation confirmation steps in the book, with an included picture showing i should have the series, FW Bus, and FW WDM audio. I had all three, but there was a 4th repeated FW bus (as shown in one of the (hopefully) attached pictures). I found this odd and didn’t know if this could be the problem.
Again everything seems to be working perfectly, except audio is not getting from the interface to the computer and back out. Quick connect works (so that means the extension installed correctly from the MR tools), i can hear audio through the direct monitoring, and the interface communicates with the MR editor and options within cubase affect the interface. so i know they are connected, just not the audio part.
I have also tried to use the MR editor to get audio into another program, Sonar X1, but no such luck there either. I thought i did everything right in the software aspect, so I’m beginning to think it is my FW card or another part of my system, so here is a list of my system:
—32 bit windows vista running on a laptop.
—AMD dual core processor 2.00ghz.
—Firewire PCIe Notebook card from Rain Computers (Just got this for the occasion, and is suposed to be made for audio interfaces. If i find out this is the problem i will be very unhappy with Rain, but it is possible…).
—Unknown speed hard drive (and very limited space left if this means anything?)
Thank you for your help, and I will answer any more questions needed about my system or settings, and provide pictures upon request.
Cheers to all, and happy holidays!
