Question about Alesis io 2 Portable 2-Channel 24-bit 48kHz USB Audio MIDI Interface

Open Question

I'm using an alesis io2 express to record guitar in fl studio 9. for some reason the latency is annoyingly high for an expensive interface. its about half a second or something. do you know what i might be doing wrong? (my computer is a lenovo thinkpad x61 and my soundcard is a soundMAX one. i'm using an asio directX full duplex sound driver)

Did you get the windows 8 version of the driver? If so uninstall the driver and reinstall it. If not, then you'll have to get a windows 8 driver.

Alesis io2 guitar inpu and mute playback for backing track in audacity


Audacity is a copyrighted audio source and does not permit you to record tracks or playback of any kind. you will need to D/L the audio file you are trying to record in tangent and then play them together through an audio remixing app, like Ableton live or FL Studio

When i import an instrumental into cubase it will playback but will be very distorted, if i change the device settings in cubase and dont use the io2 it will playback fine so im assuming its something to...


In order for an imported file to sound correctly in Cubase, the bit rate and KHz must be the same or you will create garbage when going through your interface. For instance if you have ripped something from a CD it will be in 16 bit 44.1 KHz format. If you were to pull this into Cubase at 24 bit with 48 KHz selected as your projects rate you would encounter this problem. (I'm guessing this is what is causing your problem.)
Please open up cubase and click import, a window should pop up asking if you want to convert formats, please select the check boxes for conversion for the bit rate and KHz (depending on what version of Cubase it will be something similar to this.) An alternate solution is to go to the project preferences and select the rates that match the imported material before importing and no conversion will be necessary. (Although, I recommend always working in 24 bit and 48 KHz if you're machine can handle it.) A final possibility is that you have the latency set really low and the converters can't handle the speed at which the information is being processed. If the above should for some reason not work, check in your preferences box in Cubase if possible or through software that came with your interface and increase the latency. This can cause an audible delay between the time you hit a note and hear it back so make sure to decrease it before recording and increase it while mixing since you won't being recording new material and can use that processing power that would have gone to making sure you hear your live audio quickly can be steered to use plug-ins and get crackling free playback. Remember, with latency, even if get crackling from a low latency you will not hear that crackling upon mixdown! However, I'm quite sure your problem is with conversion rates, but if never hurts to know or get a reminder on things like latency. Cubase is a high quality product and I hope you enjoy using it. Thank you and I hope this helps.

My alesis io2 express isnt working, doesnt work with my mac, not on garage band or cubase, is it compatable? what should i do?


When using with PC you have to go into soundcard settings and disable the internal sound card and select io2 or asio drivers.
I'm thinking it's the same on a mac

You may have a conflict with the onboard sound. If that is not turned off your card will not function.
