Bought another computer some time ago to use as a server and i had an m-audio delta lying around so i though i would just use it. However when i got it installed i couldnt find/see a record(software, yes i found the hardware one) input. It wouldnt show in the standard windows/controlpanel interface; nor could i choose it in wavelab as an in device. I said F*ck it and my mind convinced me i didnt need it cuz i was only installing it to use for playback(yes, im mental). Then this day came and i had to go an install a terratec phase 28** wich i sold to a friend of mine; guess what, we experienced the same shitty problem. I think i used 4 hours not getting anywhere. Let me summarize.
- Asio refuses to show in controlpanel/sound, nor does it show any devices except one(i believe this is some standard wmv-something output); it should be showing 10 different for the terratec.
- Renoise refuses to use the asio unless you actually activate directsound first then flip back to asio; if you dont it just shows a not found error message. Wierd huh.
- Wavelab refuses to record when asio is selected as playback output, that is; the record section in the wavelab config turns grey when asio in playback is selected.
- We even removed some ac97 strappings and told the bios to terminate all lifesigns.
I’ve duked this soundcard issue for too long now and my brain is transforming into white cooling lube, so if anyone got any good pointers dont be shy.
