Question about E-Mu 1212M Sound Card

EMU 1212m clicks in audio

Hi all - I have the same problem with my EMU 1212m running on WinXP Home, Asus P5LD2SE 2Gb RAM, Antec signature PSU. Intel Pentium D 2.8GHz. The clicks appear on analog and optical output. I have already replaced the card via EMU's returns policy, but after that they just suggested it would be "some other system problem". I'm growing increasingly wary of EMU products these days ... my last ESI4000 sampler broke a memory controller after only a couple of years of light usage, and this current problem seems unrelated to drivers etc as i've tried everything. I don;t know enough about the PCI bus to start tinkering with that - does anyone have any ideas? It's driving me nuts.

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.

Hi, from here you can download a manual:

Please select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global for download.
The file has to be unziped before you can read it.

Maybe you just need a driver or a bios upgrade.

For the bios update you need to download the asus update utility.
It can upgrade the bios while the system is running.

Good luck.

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.

Make sure power is connected to video card, Check standoffs, make sure no extras shorting mobo, Make sure video card is plugged in slot properly. Post mobo - cpu - ram - video card out of case. if all ok then mount with proper standoffs.

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.

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.

Emu 1212m mysterious audio clicks

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.

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard

Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
