Question about Alesis iO 26 Sound Card

1 Answer

Frequent random glitches/drop outs in sound

This unit worked fine on my Mac, but when I use bootcamp to run windows, I am getting these little playback glitches sporadically and frequently. itunes plays back fine, but sound forge, logic, acid and even realplayer all experience weird little pauses in sound very frequently. The lights on the firewire will often flash for a second when this happens. I have the most recent drivers and the unit is only a few months old, anyone know of a fix?
thanks

    Hi there
    I got an IO26 too.
    Here`s an idea.
    I got the same issue after I moved the computer and had to unwire/rewire everything.
    I have a 2 channels FireWire adapter and after I plugged into the other channel it seemed to have stopped dropping out.
    Good luck!

I'm looking for a driver E-MU 1616 m, for Mac


As I can see, there are no Mac drivers for this device yet.
You can however use a (virtual) PC emulator or Bootcamp
to be able to start a suitable Microsoft Windows.

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer

I have a lexicon omaga drive but when i hook it up its like i need a 64 bit driver


Don't know what OS you're running. Omega has published drivers for Vista and 7 64-bit versions. They say they don't support XP 64, but when I hooked my unit up to my computer and the hardware install wizard came up the OS found and installed Microsoft published general USB audio device drivers for all inputs, midi, and mac USB channels of the Omega, and automatically set it as my default device. I hooked headphones into the Omega unit and could hear system sounds. So far so good. Went to My Music and fired up an audio file. Windows Media Player started up and the song started playing but I couldn't hear anything. Opened the same file with Audacity, could see the VU meters bouncing, but still no sound in my headphones. Went in to the preferences of Audacity, and manually set the speaker default to the Omega mac USB device. Hit play again and voila! I had sound. Closed the file, started WMP manually, went in to options, and again set the speaker default to Omega mac USB. Opened the same audio file and this time it played just fine. The driver files Windows used for my card were
C:\\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\ksproxy.ax, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ks.sys, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ksthunk.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\portcls.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\stream.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\USBAUDIO.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\ksproxy.ax,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\ksuser.dll,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\wdmaud.drv,
all version 5.2.3790.1830
Hope this helps everybody else with this problem.

Nasty ***** distortion on Delta 1010's on Mac G4


Your first line stated the obvious; the PC can run 2 cards, but the G4 cannot. The Mac, although a 'PC' has significant hardware differences with an IBM derrved PC.

TASCAM US 144 and Mac incompatible???


A lot of the Audio drivers or Tascam and m-audio devices really only work for windows 32 bit reason i tried installing the same stuff for windows 64bit won't work in less u have vista 64bit But regular windows 32 bit works with every program out there. The mac if it did work it should pick up a signal if it worked properly but it sounds like the mac don't read it even with drivers .

This also could be a problem with your device if you had the same problem with it last time. replace it with a new one and try the install again on your computer and see if it works after that.

I am not able to play sound on my p.c


Why would you put windows on a mac? Windows has so many problem errors even on a pc. I'd say that is your first mistake.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 doesn't recognize Tascam US-224



After a google, I found this:

The audio sputtered when I first installed the US-224 on my laptop, but that's a common USB problem on PCs that have too many applications running in the background. The audio and controller functions worked after I ran msconfig.exe and turned off all of the unnecessary startup items, but I still heard an annoying stutter. I solved the problem by tweaking the buffer settings in the US-224's control panel and in my audio applications (Steinberg Nuendo and Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro).

SONAR LE NO AUDIO


Microsoft re-engineered the audio bus for Windows. HD Audio is hardware specific, in the sense that specific drivers have to be written to make a piece of hardware compatible with it. Roland is not writing a driver for the UA 25 because they want you to buy an UA 25EX. Get my drift? The UA 25 uses Kernel Streaming, the old way, which exists in parallel, sort of, with the HD Audio bus. But the new ways are always prioritized over the old ways in software, so there is bus contention (glitching).

To fix this there are a few things you can try:

1) Roll back to SP2. SP3 implements the HD Audio bus, so don't use that implementation. If your laptop has an HD audio sound card then I doubt it would work, but your UA 25 would.

2) Try ASIO 4 ALL. This fixed everything but glitching in VST instruments.

3) Reduce the amount of stuff your computer is doing. Optimize your OS by turning off the cute shaded windows and desktops and various processes that you don't need to see or use. There are sites for this. This increases available RAM, CPU time, etc.

4) Video hardware acceleration, sometimes, would fix bugs in software left in by not so clever programmers.

4) You can always just give-up and go along with the bastards and buy new stuff and toss the old stuff.

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.
