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.

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.

My webcam microphone doesn't work. It's can't be heard by the other person.


Good day sir/maam, I suggest you should try first the sound recorder program to see if there is enough signal strenght the mic receives as you talk, to load the sound recorder goto start/all programs/accesories/entertainment/sound recorder. press the record button and talk as loud as you can, you will see wave patters on the sound recorder screen, tone up or down your voice. play the play button after the test, if you can hear your voice, its good. if not, problems on your web cam mic. hope this helps. let me know your progress. thanks

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.
