Question about PreSonus INSPIRE 1394 External Sound System

1 Answer

Installing the PreSonus INSPIRE 1394

I installed this about 3-4days ago and it states in the User's Manual to "Continue Anyway" even though Windows states there was no LOGO testing preformed. Windows states that installing this may impair or destabilze the correct operation of your system either immediatly or in the future. I just had to take out my memory sticks because of this driver error. So I am kinda reluctant to do it again. Can anyone shed some light on this topic???

If a manufactor  doesn not submit their hardware to microsoft  for review then you will get that message.  I would guess most of the Hardware I have ever installed I "installed it anyway" without once having a problem.

I can't find samplerate setting


Most advanced music software propose a menu to set the sample rate and resolution, so you can use your audio interface without setting the sample rate in the control panel.

If you want to set it anyway, in case you are in Windows (for example Windows 7), you can click on Windows button (Start button on older Windows), choose Control panel, go to Sound, and in Sound, you can select Inspire 1394 in the playback list, and click on properties.
In the Advanced tab, you get the default playback format, for example 24-bit 96KHz, and you can change it.

How can I set this up in another daw?

I've come across this problem before in Cubase 4. Is your computer in a compartment in a desk, if so pull the computer forward so that the leads going into the soundcard are not squashed up and putting pressure on the soundcard. try it , it could be a quick fix

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on
if you don't have a motherboard disk or the driver disk you will have to download one
if these packages are not the right
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
(be precise)don't use numbers and / - you might have to try a few times to get it right
also the download software finder under that there will be a list place a tick in the box of any one you want/need
all software windows software mac software mobile and web apps

also this link will provide you with many freeware and share drivers

hope this helps you

Sounds like you have a defective FireBox. If you can, exchange it at your retailer. If this is not possible, please contact to arrange for a return authorization.
Alternatively you can try to search out a solution to your problems on our forums HERE.

No sound output

are you hooking up the headphone jack to the unit and not the ibook? When I hook inspire to my mac, the output comes from the unit, not the computer through the unit's headphone jack or the speaker output. Also make sure the volume is up and no channels are muted.
