EMU 1616m (cardbus) not offerring its input sources to Reaper

Hi. I bought the EMU-1616m to use with my laptop. i am using reaper to record a microphone and guitar input through the EMU, but when i try to assign the microphone to one track and the guitar to another it doesn't show any input sources coming from the EMU. it should say something like "A-Hi Z mic input" and B-Hi Z mic input" as options to pull from, but it doesn't. it doesn't seem to understand where the sound is coming from at all. everything comes through as one generic source and if I sing through a mic and my friend plays his guitar through the other input they both record to the same track.

Has anyone else had this issue with the EMU? Can someone give me a suggestion as to how to get the input sources to show up or even what to look for when picking the input sources in case they are not called A-Hi-Z, B-Hi-Z? thanks!

While you probably solved this already here goes. I'm not familiar with reaper but most audio recording software can select between using windows wdm & ASIO. If you aren't set to ASIO you won't be able to see the Hi-Z (Dock A/Dock B) inputs. It looks like Reaper supports ASIO so that should be fine. If though you are using a program that doesn't support ASIO you need to use the EMU patchmix and 'patch' the input through to a 'wave' channel.

I can't get the software/drivers to download to my PC (Dell GX280 w/3gb ram XPpro). I'm trying to use the bundle that came with the purchase of my 1616m and I get a message that says it doesn't see any emu...


Try removing the device driver in Hardware manager, then 'refresh' to tell it to look for a new driver. Keep the CD in the drive, and have windows search it for the driver.

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.

EMU 1616M sound card


Hi,
I know this is a longshot, so forgive me..
Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit.
I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that..
Let me know how you get on..

HI, I have an emu 1616m soundcard. My laptop recognizes the EMU and the pulgins, but no sound comes out of the monitors.Only from the laptop speakers.


You have to select the EMU as the default playback device in Windows and or select it as the playback device in the software you are using for recording or playback.
Go to Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices icon, and select the Audio tab. There is a drop down box that lists all playback devices. You have to select the EMU in there.
That should get you working.

Loading problem emu1616


First up, I am no expert, but hope I can help.
I think that it is just a matter of following the installation procedures which EMU describe in the booklet.

When you insert the card for the first time, do not install using the hardware wizard.

Instead exit out of it and insert the cd, which will run a seperate install procedure (if autorun is enabled).
During the installation, a splashscreen will pop up (at around 45% complete) saying that the driver is not signed. Choose 'continue anyway'.

This should take care of the digital signature issue.

After this, there might be a problem with the cardbus controller.
This is highlighted on the EMU website.
Thats the problem which I am struggling with and hope someone can help out ..

Emu1616m/ acid pro 5 sync problem I have used the Emu 1616m(soundcard) with acid pro 5 on a Sony Vaio Laptop(windows XP) for over a year. I have periodically taken out the soundcard following the simple remove hardware procedure, everytime working properly when loading it back up. The most recent time putting the card back in and turning on the laptop, all the ports were gone. What I mean by ports is all my inputs, micline inputs, Aux In, 1L1R, ect, ect...everything i would normally use to plug in my speakers, mixer, keyboard,mic, ect ect.... Gone....what i Mean is: when i pressed record on Acid Pro 5, a window would pop up showing me the feedback, and record device, when pressing the down arrow on the record device there would normally be a long list of all the inputs available on the emu 1616m. This is my problem, the inputs and all are gone and no matter what i do i can' t get them back. I tried the obvious stuff, going into the sound audio devices on the pc, going into the preferences on acid. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, i might have messed up the ASIO on the pc, but thought i had it back to how it was. I even tried restoring back to an original date, and know i can't even bring up the patchmix dsp application, it say's i got a missing/corrupt (skin) and may need to re-install. At first I thought this would be a simple fix, I'm sure it is but now its beyond my ability to get things back to the way they were. I record daily as independent artist, and unfortunately rely on this equipment, can somebody please help, it would be much appreciated. Thankyou Sincerely Cory Green
