Topic: Fireface UCX : ASIO driver not loadable... (SOLVED)
I received two days ago my first RME unit, a Fireface UCX, and proceeded to its installation with an USB connection. Beside the fact that the driver CD was almost unusable (more than 10 minutes needed to make the RME driver installation window appear), I finally got the driver installed, after downloading the 1.164 version from the RME site and it seems to work correctly, according to the Windows device manager.
The problem is that the ASIO doesn't work, this, either with Cubase 6.5 or Reaper 5.91. I get these messages :
- Cubase 6.55 (in the Devices>Device setup>VST Audio System... pane, trying to change the ASIO Driver) :
Audio Engine Error: could not activate ASIO driver (following few symbols not european)
- Reaper 5.91 (as soon as Reaper is ready to be used) :
There was an error opening audio the audio hardware
Error loading ASIO driver
In Reaper Preferences>Device pane, choosing ASIO Fireface USB leads to no inputs or outputs available, making it unusable.
Seeing this, I tried to uninstall completely all what was RME related and reinstalled the whole stuff again, using another USB port for my UCX unit : same thing...
I must be missing something here. Thanks for any enlightments that could help making my Fireface UCX usable...
FWIW, my system configuration :
i870 / P7P55D-E / 16 Gb RAM / AMD Radeon HD6450 / Ethernet adapter / No other soundcard installed, HDA disabled in the BIOS / Windows 7 (64), SP1.
EDIT : I do get sound when using a mp3/wave file or an internet sound source.
UPDATE ! Seems that the ASIO driver is perfectly loaded when using an Windows administrator account. Until now, I was testing/configuring the unit with my usual (and limited) one. Now, the challenge is to make the ASIO driver also loaded with it...
