Question about E-Mu 1616M Sound Card

2 Answers

E-mu 1616m freezes and makes an awful tone (deee!) ouch!

I have an AMD computer. Pretty fast. 3 gigs of ram. plenty of hard disk space at 300 gigs. sounds fast right? I guess

heres the problem

I run Adobe audition 3.0 (full version)

When i record i get a great sound. HOWEVER. it freezes and makes a high pitched squeel sound out of my speakers intermittenly. I then have to close Patch works and restart Audition. Again it will work for 5 maybe 10 maybe 30 min. and then freeze again and more painfull tone sounds enough to seriously damage my ears. OUCH!

please please tell me this is a common glitch with an easy fix. I will forever be greatfull.

What OS are you running? The problem you are having usually comes from a bad driver or a problem with the software you are using. Does it ever do that when using media player or other players? Has it always done it or is this a recent problem?
Have you tried using a different recording software like Cubase or Sonar? If you don't have any others to test with, you can download Audacity for free. It is an open source multitrack recording software that works pretty well. In case the link above didn't work, the page is at http://audacity.sourceforge.net ... It is cross platform and works with most hardware. Even works with my DIGI 001 rack.
You can also try uninstalling it and reinstalling with updated drivers from the Creative website.
Let me know if I can help further.

Cheers

I have the same problem using the E-MU 0404PCIe card, but there is no way out after this happens except to cut power to the computer, then restore power and reboot. Very frustrating! Whatever music file is playing will halt, I get a rapid low pitch pulsing sound for about 2 seconds, followed by a loud high pitched tone, and then lines on my monitor screen from top to bottom. So far no solution from Creative technical support. With other people having this same type of problem, surely there must be an answer, but I haven't heard it yet. Please e-mail me if anyone can help. rickandlezel@hotmail.com

Hello. i have question about soundcard e-mu 1616 (not 1616M) please answer me pls. she work with windows 7? on official site i not see driver for Win7. but on 1616M driver is exists thx


Apparently versions of the E-Mu 1616 sound hardware are still being sold, and this is now 2013. My experience suggests that E-Mu is out of business. Creative Technologies has kept the E-Mu site online, but the forms are broken, nothing's been updated for years, the forum is virtually inactive, and Support links are dead or missing. I recently couldn't even find a support contact for Creative (Soundblaster). The 1616 Microdock is a highly capable product, but its software is hard to figure out and compatibility for the constantly evolving Windows operating systems is questionable. Mine currently has stopped working with some of the software it worked with for years (using Windows XP and then Windows 7), and apparently some software (e.g. Audacity) does not support it at all. Online retailers should take this product off their "shelves."

I can't get the software/drivers to download to my PC (Dell GX280 w/3gb ram XPpro). I'm trying to use the bundle that came with the purchase of my 1616m and I get a message that says it doesn't see any emu...


Try removing the device driver in Hardware manager, then 'refresh' to tell it to look for a new driver. Keep the CD in the drive, and have windows search it for the driver.

Emu 1616 will not run on my pc


MONFICAT - What service pack are you running, under Windows XP? Are all Windows updates installed? One thing you may want to do is (after making sure all Windows updates are applied), uninstall and reinstall the E-mu software, as directed in the manual. When reinstalling the software, make sure you follow the instructions in the manual. You MUST follow the instructions in the manual, else the software will not install properly. Good luck with it!

Love the system...


The e-mu sure can do it. You just run whatever output you want into the input on the sound board. The setup is exactly the same as if you just wanted to play winamp music on the system.

It's your computer that can't handle it. Computer only has one sound output, so you can't play two separate things in two separate instances of winamp, because the sound only comes out of one place on your laptop.

You can buy a second external sound card, like the SB Live External USB Sound card, and maybe run both at the same time, having one winamp output to the external device, and the other winamp output to the laptop's internal sound card device, then one line runs to your e-mu system and the other to a pair of headphones.

Or you can bring another laptop in ;)

Major problem with Emu 1616m


what is happening is that you are receiving what techies call the BSOD or blue screen of death. The most likely reason that you are getting this is a driver error. Try and press f8 before you see the loading windows xp screen with the scrolling green progress bar. This will bring you into safe mode. Go to the device manager and remove the driver. Reboot the computer and get the latest drivers from the manufacturers website and install them.

Emu1616m/ acid pro 5 sync problem I have used the Emu 1616m(soundcard) with acid pro 5 on a Sony Vaio Laptop(windows XP) for over a year. I have periodically taken out the soundcard following the simple remove hardware procedure, everytime working properly when loading it back up. The most recent time putting the card back in and turning on the laptop, all the ports were gone. What I mean by ports is all my inputs, micline inputs, Aux In, 1L1R, ect, ect...everything i would normally use to plug in my speakers, mixer, keyboard,mic, ect ect.... Gone....what i Mean is: when i pressed record on Acid Pro 5, a window would pop up showing me the feedback, and record device, when pressing the down arrow on the record device there would normally be a long list of all the inputs available on the emu 1616m. This is my problem, the inputs and all are gone and no matter what i do i can' t get them back. I tried the obvious stuff, going into the sound audio devices on the pc, going into the preferences on acid. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, i might have messed up the ASIO on the pc, but thought i had it back to how it was. I even tried restoring back to an original date, and know i can't even bring up the patchmix dsp application, it say's i got a missing/corrupt (skin) and may need to re-install. At first I thought this would be a simple fix, I'm sure it is but now its beyond my ability to get things back to the way they were. I record daily as independent artist, and unfortunately rely on this equipment, can somebody please help, it would be much appreciated. Thankyou Sincerely Cory Green
