Question about Edirol UA-4FX External Sound System
I am recording using the Sonar LE program included with the UA 4FX. The sound card frequently stops working when I am using the program. I have to close the Sonar program and reconnect the usb to get it going again. Sometimes it will run smoothly for a bit and then stop working again. My desktop has a an Intel Celeron processor at 851 Mgz, 248 MB of Ram. I use Windows XP, Version 2002, Service Pack 2. I have disabled the onboard MME sound card, tried reinstalling the UA-4fx number of times, set the system properties to Background, and adjusted the buffer rates in various ways. Would appreciate any advice on what i can do next? Also when I open the volume control through Start-Programs-Accessories-Volume Control-Properties, there are no volume controls available for recording with the UA-4fx as the mixing device? I have been unable to convert midi files to audio using Sonar because of this. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.
Celeron CPU's will struggle with making music and limit what you can do with audio. Celerons are ok to play music but nor really for making music. Firewire is a better option for making music as it's really fast unlike USB. An option would be to get a faster CPU and try the soundcard again. But i would not use USB audio and would use an Audiophile 2496 soundcard as they are really cheap. Also midi is data and not audio, midi just works virtual instruments and is able to control keyboards through midi out. But first try a better CPU as a celeron isant that good for makign music. I know becouse i've been there done that and go really upset with the same problems your having at the moment. I played the midi files on cuabse and recorded it onto an audio chanel.
