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!
Re: EMU 1616m (cardbus) not offerring its input sources...
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.

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.
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..
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.
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 ..
