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

SOURCE: EMU 1616M sound card

Hi,
I know this is a longshot, so forgive me..
Hit F8 on booting up and go into the BIOS, and use the arrow keys to navigate to sound and check that the PCI (sound card) is checked and not the OS (onboard sound). Save to CMOS and Exit.
I know.. I know.. but sometimes it's as simple as that..
Let me know how you get on..

SOURCE: HI, I have an emu

You have to select the EMU as the default playback device in Windows and or select it as the playback device in the software you are using for recording or playback.
Go to Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices icon, and select the Audio tab. There is a drop down box that lists all playback devices. You have to select the EMU in there.
That should get you working.

SOURCE: EMU 1616m (cardbus) not offerring its input sources to Reaper

While you probably solved this already here goes. I'm not familiar with reaper but most audio recording software can select between using windows wdm & ASIO. If you aren't set to ASIO you won't be able to see the Hi-Z (Dock A/Dock B) inputs. It looks like Reaper supports ASIO so that should be fine. If though you are using a program that doesn't support ASIO you need to use the EMU patchmix and 'patch' the input through to a 'wave' channel.

Buzz is caused by a bad ground or interference in your shielding check out your cabling or plugs that is where the problem lies.

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."

EMU 1616 + vaio = BSOD


You need combofix utility, first install on your os and then run it. After complete the process take a reboot and then try to reinstall the driver, your BSOD problem will have been removed.


Good Luck

E-MU 1616. Problem installing drivers


"I am running windows XP proffessional 5.1 on a HP (compaq) dc7600.
Could this be the problem?"

It could be. Bring up your system properties box (Windows key + Pause/Break key). Is that the version shown at the top right on the GENERAL tab?

Is there some reason you have not installed service pack 2 or 3? Of course if you're running an illegal copy of Windows you can't, but I mean any legitimate reason? If we can eliminate the problem with installing the latest service packs we can move forward.

Us-144 working only on high latency!


Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.

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.
