"digital in" led flashes instead of burning constantly

Hello there, I have a labtop with cubase installed on it and the Edirol UA-25 connected. The problem is that the "digital in" led flashes instead of burning constantly. The manual says that this isn't correct but doesn't give any solution. Can anybody please help me. With kind regards, Stephan.

Re: "digital in" led flashes instead of burning...

Sorry, i'm new to the UA-25 as well, but from my understanding, if you are using a digital signal device and it is connected properly, that indicator should be steadily lit. IF you are NOT using a digital signal device and it's flashing, it's because you have the button pressed when you shouldn't have it pressed unless you want your sound to loop through the computer and come back to your headphones.

Hello. Sometimes the USB voltage is not enougth. Try connect the usb cable into another USB port, preferring the rear panel connectors. The UA25 drivers must be installed previously.

Can get signal from UA-25 to computer... but no audio from computer to UA-25?

Here is one solution uninstall the default driver or roll back driver. Restart your computer. When you get into windows wait for everything to load and then plug in your audio device. If you have it plugged in when windows starts then it will install a driver. In automatic updates you can select to notify of updates, but lets you install the ones you want.

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25

Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

Digital in out

The ada800 gives out 8 channels of ADAT, the edirol UA-25 are only stereo opticals and not compatible with the ADA8000 as it does not have any adat inputs or outputs.
Hope this helps

Edirol not able to record on Cubase essentials

This interface works fine with other hosts but with cubase is more tricky. But you can fix it.

You need to disable the onboard sound card, also use the UA25 Asio drivers, go to programs/Steinberg cubase/ ASIO multimedia setup and you should see the UA25 outports are active and that the sync ref "YES" also that the UA25 Input ports are active. the next bit is a bit of fun select the Advanced options and select Detect buffer size, when thats finished select Check Buffers and Sync, press the start button and the test will run,if everything is ok you should have zero "Sync lost" and zero "Buffer lost"
Depending on how lower you want to get your latency , you may have to tweek the UA25 driver settings and re-run the setup above.

Edirol UA-25 not working on Mac OS X

I had the same problem. When I installed the Edirol software it prompted to 'reboot' and when it restarted all the lights on the Edirol came on.
Why don't you try it like that.
Hook up the Edirol Install the software Reboot
Best of luck Victoria
