Question about Focusrite Saffire Pro Sound Card

1 Answer

Sound card has become inoperable since I loaded on the IKmultimedia software

Using a PC with dual processor and 2.ghz of RAM, I have been using a cracked copy of cubase SX with additional other cracked software with Echo Mia sound card but have recently purchased the Saffire Pro which once installed, was working fine and I had no problems. It was only until I installed a complete and legit copy of Ikmultimedia total studio bundle is when the Saffire started getting unstable. (I have disabled the old sound card to prevent any conflicts) I was just choosing a sound in Sampletank 2 via Cubase when the system froze. I then rebooted but while the system was rebooting the Saffire made a load buzz noise. I turned it off to reset it along with the system but I now have no sound coming out of the Saffire at all. Everything looks fine and is visually working correctly but I am still getting no sound what so ever. the midi works but I feel the something maybe below when I restarted Cubase. Can anyone help?

Hi,

It seems your system complicates soundcard's driver version and patches. To eliminate problem that causes inoparable one at a time; please consider to uninstall software sound applications and drivers. Remove any secondary or external sound cards and enable the built-in sound card at the BIOS. Now, start the system in Safe Mode try to remove the existing soundcard drivers at control panel sound card properties. Restart the system, well try to prove that the built-in sound card still working by reinstalling it. By then you can disable it again and install your secondary or external sound card. Hope it will work this time, else you'll need to clean up your Operating System astrays dll's using registry cleaners third party software. I met this problem before that my only recouse is by reformatting the system.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

I would check to make sure that you dont have anything else running while encoding the audio. Since audio encoding is processor intensive it very easily could be an application or AntiVirus software interfering with the ability to record audio.

Stuart, make sure have the System requirements Here are the recommended memory (MB or GB of RAM) and processor speed (GHz) requirements for using Audacity with different versions of Vista:

Version Recommended RAM/
processor speed Minimum RAM/
processor speed Vista Home Basic 2 GB / 1 GHz 512 MB / 1 GHz All other Vista versions 4 GB / 2 GHz 1 GB / 1 GHz
Note that the minimum system requirements as defined above (i.e. those that allow the operating system to run, ignoring what is required to run applications) are much greater than for Windows XP. If your computer does not significantly exceed these minimum requirements then you may have problems doing more intensive tasks in Audacity such as recording for long periods or editing a large number of long tracks, or may need to close other programs and processes before you can do so. Please be aware that the cheapest "deals" for new Vista machines may well only include the Vista Home Basic Edition and system specifications little in excess of the Vista minimum requirements.
Other things being equal, 64-bit versions of Vista will require more RAM than 32-bit versions. While some users report Audacity runs fine on 64-bit Vista with 2 GB RAM, this depends on the number of tracks being worked with and the number of other programs and services running on the computer. Memory is now very inexpensive. The general recommendation for 64-bit Vista is to install a minimum of 4 GB RAM - and for very best performance, install the maximum RAM that your motherboard supports.

If you meet the min system requirements. Uninstall your sound card drives and try the beta version for Windows Vista.

I had bought new creative inspire m4500 but instead of four only


I found the solution to my own problem.

(First install the software that is provided in the form of a CD with your SoundBlaster. I had to buy a 5.1VX Creative Sound Blaster for my Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 speakers.)

Go to the folder ‘Creative’ which you may find in your Program Files.
Then double click on the following one after the other:
Creative
SB5.1VX
Surround Mixer
SurMixer (SurMixer.exe)

Now go to EAX.
Select CMSS 3D.
Check on the box ‘Enable CMSS 3D Surround.’
Select ‘Stereo Surround.’

Hope your problem is solved now:))

You said the magic phrase premiume HOME computer...
and the key word VISTA.
I've heard of VISTA pro running this but the home version is really not that robust for the type of gear you have there.
vista just has to many bugs.
go back to xp pro sp2 for good results.
good luck
