Yes Its Upgrade Time…
Seeing that I was not running Win10 on my old Win7 Laptop, when I came into a bit of money I decided to Upgrade the whole mess with a quick HP that ran the needed programs. I was sure to get a fast & fat unit that should meet my needs for the rest of this old guys life…
The Crown Jewel of all my Gear is the Alesis Multimix 16 USB 2.0. For those who don’t know, USB 2.0 allows your DAW to run 18 Channels of Audio from the Multimix into a DAW or Cantabile and record each channel independently from the others.
However, now that I have upgraded to Win10 and new computer, I am no longer able to see or use this capability when running Cantabile. I’m stuck with only 2 ins & 2 Outs.
I have updated my Win10 Driver for the Multimix downloading it from Alesis.
Driver Version 2.9.64 ; Firmware Version 1.1.0 (k4)
The Alesis USB Audio Device driver shows it working with 18 in and 2 out.
I follow the Alesis Protocol when turning on my Studio. Alesis suggest users turn on all their Audio/Midi gear first, before turning on the Win10 Laptop last. Which I do.
I am using a USB 2.0 cable and have it plugged into a USB 2.0 port in the computer.
I have been able to use the 16 channel audio input feature in my current DAW - Cakewalk.
So, if you have any insights or a solution I would appreciate hearing from you.
