Re: Audiophile USB / OSx 10.4.10 / Audio is fine but Midi...

Ok her's wuz up! It's the install **** that this driver's been tackling with since the beginning! (This somewhat goes for the oSX to i gues =) Anyway, so...

1. Uninstall the whole thing! Also run regedit (XP,Vista?) and delete everything named "Audiophile" (installed audio apps mostly recognices to the new drivers once installed so don't worry).

2. Then reboot and run the new drivers - and remember that old ****, click "continue anyway" at all THREE times. 

3. Then reboot again (do NOT turn the card on yet). I turned it on after shortly after BIOS screen and that was almost too early! Anyway, then follow the "found new harware" routine - TWO times - one for SOUND and one for MIDI. 

This might seem basic and all but, hey... with theese kind of cards.. sheeesh!. And when ARE they going to get there "protocal" aproved?! Next OS?!

Gaps and noises in my Session recording

Is it bus powered? If it is only plugged into the USB port and not also into the AC outlet, it may be because your USB port does not supply enough voltage or enough current. USB is spec'd at 5V, 500mA, but many fall short. I have the same problem with a Tascam US-122. I haven't tested yet, because it doesnt have an external power port. I would need to splice 5V power into the USB cable.

HI there I'm using a Korg synth with my M audiophile and I have a latency problem, I can access the usb control panel but it doesn't let me change the latency or sample rates can anyone help

the latency is in the sound card.
usually you can set the CPU cache to 512 in a program or synthesizer.
Your Korg softwear may be able to ajust this if it is on your pc. Most PC have the sound card built into the mother board thereby not cutting the performance.
2. You will have to purchase a external sound card for your Audio and midi interface to get the least amount of latency.
The PC cabinet with all it components has a lot of EMI (Electromagnetic interference) that cause some of the latency issues with these device. If you can live with 2ms latency which the human ear can't determine then you can render a acceptable audio and midi setup, The Ableton Live 8 series has a latency setting for the CPU in the program. Download the demo and see if you notice a difference.

Will not recognize Midair 25 (drivers installed)

Sounds like a USB issue. Is the device self powered? Did you try plugging in a different USB cable? Is it plugged into a powered hub?

USB 1.1 devices and USB 2 devices can cause issues together on the same bus or port. Try keeping devices separate or plug in just the maudio device. I had issues with USB Network adapters not being seen all the way because there was a older usb 1.1 device on the same hub.

Problem with stability

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.
