Question about Echo Indigo IO Sound Card

1 Answer

Output activity showing but no sound.

OP: Windows Vista Home Premium--Up to date I purchased the indigo io for taking my home studio with me to college after reading rave reviews. My Indigo I/O soundcards seem to be working when looking at it. the blue LED is lit, windows recognizes it, and there is output activity, BUT NO SOUND! on itunes, windows media player, games, sonar 6, cubasesx3. I installed the card with the 7.1 and updated to 7.2 for vista but neither works. I check to make sure the indigo output is selected as default under windows. I used both sony mdr-v600 headphones, and a harmon/kardon speaker system which both work 100% fine when connected to the internal soundcard but NOT with the IO! THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING! I contacted but their answers were so vague but they DID say this was a common problem. did anyone else experience this? can someone PLEEEEEEASE help me out? Also, I am using a duel system express card to pcmcia adapater both with the latest drivers and my system rarely reads both devices and usually either rejects both the adapter and card when the card is inserted or reboots. Sometimes, it reads flawlessly; What's up with that? Thankyou for your help.

    well, the io actually has 8 virtual inputs and analogs input 1/2. they all work the same. Well, FINALLY i seemed to have gotten it working after disabling the onboard playback and reinstalling drivers. but the sound is worst than my onboard chipset with fuzz in the music once in a while. also, i am using a duel systems expresscard to pcmcia cardbus slot adapter and the connection is very inconsistent and even sometimes losing connection during playback. i have the newest drivers for both and duel systems insist it is compatible with the io.

Virtual outputs? in Echo console The phones output is Analog 1-2 and the line output is Analog 3-4. In the Echo console, you can choose between the Analog 1-2 bus and the Analog 3-4 bus in the upper right hand corner. In the Analog 1-2 bus make sure you have virtual output 3-4 muted. In the Analog 3-4 bus make sure you have the virtual output 1-2 muted. From within your audio application you can now assign your headphones output and your house (line) output. Hope this is some help.
