Re: EMU 1616M sound card
Hi, I know this is a longshot, so forgive me.. Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit. I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that.. Let me know how you get on..

1. Check for update for you sound card at the manufacturers site this may be the issue. Some sound cards will not be fully recognized by Windows 7 because the manufacturer has not given or developed a full driver set for the new Windows environment.
Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.
You have to select the EMU as the default playback device in Windows and or select it as the playback device in the software you are using for recording or playback. Go to Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices icon, and select the Audio tab. There is a drop down box that lists all playback devices. You have to select the EMU in there. That should get you working.
While you probably solved this already here goes. I'm not familiar with reaper but most audio recording software can select between using windows wdm & ASIO. If you aren't set to ASIO you won't be able to see the Hi-Z (Dock A/Dock B) inputs. It looks like Reaper supports ASIO so that should be fine. If though you are using a program that doesn't support ASIO you need to use the EMU patchmix and 'patch' the input through to a 'wave' channel.
First up, I am no expert, but hope I can help.
I think that it is just a matter of following the installation procedures which EMU describe in the booklet.
When you insert the card for the first time, do not install using the hardware wizard.
Instead exit out of it and insert the cd, which will run a seperate install procedure (if autorun is enabled).
During the installation, a splashscreen will pop up (at around 45% complete) saying that the driver is not signed. Choose 'continue anyway'.
This should take care of the digital signature issue.
After this, there might be a problem with the cardbus controller.
This is highlighted on the EMU website.
Thats the problem which I am struggling with and hope someone can help out ..
