Sorry but I guess I wasn’t specific enough when I first posted this topic…
My ongoing concern is that CB will not recognize a USB connected midi device after it is running (windows only). Not the audio device discussion that has been introduced in this topic. So, to be a little more specific I edited this topic’s subject to add the word “Midi”.
BTW… my firewire connected audio device will work if I connect it (the same device that has been previously connected) after CB is running. Also, I do get a warning if my audio device gets disconnected during a CB session.
