Question about Edirol UA-25 External Sound System

My Edirol UA-25 suddenly is not working with Nuendo

I have aN Edirol UA25 which has just suddenly stopped working with Nuendo 3.2. The computer says the edirol is there and I can run sound through it. I tried uninstalilng the software, reinstalling and restarting the computer, that didn't help. It was working although glitchy yesterday. I have two computes with Nuendo 3 and it is the same for both of them. Nuendo first said the device is not connected and not it doesn't recognize it all. Though it still appears in advanced VST and I can get the output to work through the edirol but I can't record which is the most important thing. Is this an updated driver problem? If so, I'm stumped I haven't found a driver compatible that can solve this, I tried!

My computer is using Vista

I need to record my show and I'm tearing my hair out! Please help

    Input suddenly not woring for me as well. Also, running ACID it says that the UA-25 doesn't support the current sample rate or bit depth. It always worked before, so I really don't get why it suddenly doesn't.

    Hi there, I have been recording with M-audio with Nuendo for a while and have a never before encounter problem. When I open my tracks up, i set-up all the device connections as usual and then when I play the track, icant hear anything in my headphones. I can see the levels moving, but no sound is possible. If i switch the driver I can hear playback through my computer speakers only but not through the M-audio. have no idea what the problem is. Can you help? Thanks - Trisha

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25

Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

Hello. Sometimes the USB voltage is not enougth. Try connect the usb cable into another USB port, preferring the rear panel connectors. The UA25 drivers must be installed previously.

Edirol not able to record on Cubase essentials

This interface works fine with other hosts but with cubase is more tricky. But you can fix it.

You need to disable the onboard sound card, also use the UA25 Asio drivers, go to programs/Steinberg cubase/ ASIO multimedia setup and you should see the UA25 outports are active and that the sync ref "YES" also that the UA25 Input ports are active. the next bit is a bit of fun select the Advanced options and select Detect buffer size, when thats finished select Check Buffers and Sync, press the start button and the test will run,if everything is ok you should have zero "Sync lost" and zero "Buffer lost"
Depending on how lower you want to get your latency , you may have to tweek the UA25 driver settings and re-run the setup above.

Edirol ua25 jack speaker output

Your are using powered speakers right? Or going into an amp and then the speakers, as the UA-25 does not have enough power to drive passive speakers.
Call Roland customer service and have them walk you through the device setup to make sure you've got everything right.

Edirol ua-25 not detecting midi but audio works fine


On the back of the UA25 there's a switch called "Advance" - this needs to be set to ON for the device to work as a MIDI interface.
