Question about E-Mu 1212M Sound Card

Emu 1212m mysterious audio clicks

After first 15-30 min. after reboot kind of static like clicks appears in stereo image of audio (left,right,center - anywhere but not often). It can be at ASIO or not (maybe at Microsoft mapping more frequently). It doesn't matter if the audio file is actually playing or not. It doesn't matter if it is audio sequencer (Reaper, Sonar), player like Foobar, video player or simply nothing. Just sometimes something clicks happily(it's always one click not a series). No conflicts or anything as far as I know. Equipment is - Emu 1212m - the newest drivers, Gigabyte GA EP35-DS3 Rev.2.1, NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT, Seagate drives Tech Solo 450W power - thank you in advance - ****

With digital sync there are 2 devices one is the MASTER one is the SLAVE the MASTER is like the leader he determines when to start what the sample rate and frequency will be, the amount of latency and so on.
If you look in session settings in PATCHMIX you will see 2 options under system. These are Internal and External, Internal sets the 1212 M as Master and External sets it as Slave.

Can the EMU 1212m work with the EMU 1820m Audiodock?

If I remember correctly you'll have to choose between the 1212-board and the 1820m-dock. The internal 1212-board is not needed if you have an 1820 and, as the line inputs/outputs on the 1212 appears as DockA/B and line 1 R/L on the 1820.

I need em 8810 sound card driver.can you help me?

try looking for the drivers for the, say, Emu 1212m PCI on the EMU site. The 12112m sound system consisted of an em8810 PCI card and an em8820 interface card as a set. They don't list drivers for the 8810 but they do for the 1212m sound system and those will work fine. They have beta Win 7 drivers but if you can find them, the Vista drivers work fine and in 64 bit as well.

I work with windows 7 and i need a driver for the sound card

This is a link to E-Mu for info for the 1212M sound card. Unfortunately Win 7 is not listed. Does Win 7 offer running a program/drivers in compatibility mode? Just a thought.

EMU 1212m clicks in audio

Note that there are new drivers that can be found on and that some E-MU products need to be grounded, like my E-MU 1616m, check also the ASIO drivers settings,
setting in them the milliseconds to low wil also
cause audio stutter.

I have a behringer ub1832fx pro mixer. i also have an emu 1212m soundcard. how do i connect this to my computer and record using my DAW and keyboard. thanks

You first need to make sure the 1212m is installed properly in windows. When you load your DAW (Sonar, Cubase etc) you should go to preferences and make sure that the 1212m is selected for input and output audio.

The 1212m only has 2 physical input and outputs, so you will be able to record and play back in stereo, but if you want to record or play back 8 channels at a time you will need a seperate analogue to digital converter, like the Behringer ADA800.

Cannot get all speakers to work at once!!

It could be that every sound has its recording style, some record the sound to just left or right only(mono left or mono right) some has stereo, recorded on left and right. Some have induced additional sound that only surround sound is best at.

Or some base on signal strength, some cut or boost only to the level it is set to appear.

Speakers work only on DVD

You might have connected your TV/Stereo Receiver up to the wrong audio outputs of the DVD player. Make sure you are coming out of the FRONT left/right audio outputs and not the CENTER?REAR left/right audio outputs.
