Question about Bob Mackie Onyx FireWire Sound Card

1 Answer

Onyx 1640 shows connection but no audio recorded.

Last night I went out for a live recording, setup my gear, I was planning on setting my pres for record level and then working front of house off of the same Onyx 1640. Everything went as planned until I started to set my pres for record level I couldn't get a signal through any of my inputs, no audio out from pc either. I reinstalled all the drivers, and went through all my asio configurations I also went through all my firewire drivers. The board worked fine for foh, but nothing was recorded??

Sometimes Windows XP will seem to "forget" that you have Mackie drivers. In such cases you need to go into Hardware Manager, uninstall the drivers, then press F5 to check for hardware changes. It will find the drivers again and take you through the installation process. Sometimes this "forgetting" seems to be triggered by the order in which you turn on the computer and board. It seems that for the first version of the Onyx drivers I had to turn the board on first, then the computer. I have updated my Onyx drivers and now it seems that I must turn on the board after XP is loaded and ready to go. Otherwise Windows can't "see" that the board is attached and thus Sonar or whatever won't be able to record. Sometimes when this happens I can turn the board off and back on, then Windows sees it. However, when that fails I uninstall and reinstall the drivers as I described earlier and it always solves the problem.

Have you used a shotgun microphone before? Is there any changes you need to do in the recording setup to use shotguns?


First you need to get the understanding for the use of a shotgun mic.
It's ment to be used for movies, live recordings, and mic mixing.
So for mic mixing you need to get all the mics for the musicians leveled and then you mix the whole studio sound together by getting a level of how all sound is in sync.
I hope this was helpful.

With adobe audition 1.5 how do i get my voice to play back through edit view? Ive really been up all night trying to figure this problem out someone please explain step y step


First, be sure you see the audio track on "edit view". It shows the peak of the recording level. If it is a straight line, you have not recorded your voice. If the recording is there, you have to be sure your computer audio is set to play back through the speakers. If the recording is not there you have to set the computer to record from your input, either line or mic input. Set the level to the max. When you record you can see the input level on the two bars at the bottom of the screen. Double click on them to see the input level before you start recording. You want the level to be near "zero", at the far right. If the level is above "0" the peak indicators will turn red. You don't want red lights. Set the input level just below the red peak. Click on the red record button at the panel on the lower left of the screen. When you click the record button you may see a pop up that want you to set the recording parameters of the file. You have to make these selections before you can record. Once that is done, the record button will show the record position and audio track scroll across the screen. You will also see the level bars respond to the input. When finished recording click the stop button. You should then be able to play back the recording.
There are many adjustment and changes you can make to recorded files. The Adobe help files are very good explaining the features of the software. It is a very powerful audio system. Good luck and have fun with voice and music tracks.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Recording quality just went downhill fast.


Make sure your computer audio is NOT set to "echo" as this will loop the audio back out. This setting can sometimes get set by whatever... it happens.

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish


Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

Distorted sound, Low signal, unable to use deck with serato.


Hi there,
I just want to clarify the way you have your gear set up.,
Normally this is enough to annoy anyone.

Having set all the equipment up,this is what I would do.....

Try without Serato

Firstly I would set the records & platters and then the counterweights,
Then I would do an audible check.Headphones,Monitors and then front of house system
If this passes I will then set the room levels for comfort and then the eq band gets a tune up for the room,

If this set up procedure works then connect Serato,
If problems persists then Uninstall Serato and Reinstall.

Try Again if all else fails ......

www.serato.com they have a contact us,report the problem.

Hope this helps ,If you need more help please let me know,Misterdj

All connected, but when recording, records a symbol only of an eye and a microphone crossed out ( a no entry symbol) the camera used to work fine, both for video and audio, so i have removed all software,...


Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
