Question about Edirol UA-4FX External Sound System

Open Question

Recording and hearing

I bought Edirol UA 4FX 3 months ago. Since then I couldn't record anything. Seemingly I am doing something wrong. I have Cakewalk, Sonar and Nuendo for recording.
Can you explain simply how to use the equipment, I just want to record my songs with my guitar.
Best regards

make sure, if you are using windows you have the right sound card settings (control panel->audio and sound devices or however) as mentioned in the manual. Also, using sonar LE make sure to have correct settings (options->audio settings). i had trouble with playback too but now everything's working fine. in my sonar settings i use the ASIO driver mode, and mark 'share with other programs'. make sure the right sound card is selected too (options->audio->drivers) and then it sould appear in the advanced window (as for the playback and the record timing master). other possible solutions might be in the options-> midi devices window, though i doubt that. I hope this can be helpfull. Good luck! btw, any solutions on how to NOT get the registration window on the startup?

Problem with guitar

1.make sure the guitar/mic switch is pointed to the guitar side. increase the guitar/mic level. increase the output level. 2.another thing you can do is check the "sound and audio devices" to see if everything is set to Edirol UA-4FX. If everything isnt, fix it so that it does. and remember to disable your computers stock sound card. Edirol UA-4FX is your new sound card from now on. 3. if thats not the case, try reinstalling the drivers. 4. If all of the above fail, you probably have a loose connection/ bad wiring in the guitar/mic 1/4" input. you can choose to open up the device and solder that yourself and possibly lose your warranty or have the entire unit replaced. Hope I helped! good luck!
