Topic: FX on my HDSPe MADI FX PCIe ... not working ?

Hi, I'm a long-time user of RME stuff. In my Studio Mac Pro I use a PCIe card - HDSPe Madi FX - ... working fine for years now :-) ...

But, the FX on this card are not working (I think ...)

Never needed it ... but now I tried an EQ ... NOT working ??
Then I tried Reverb and Delay ... NOT working ??

When I put up the FX Send ... Input is showing in the FX section ... but no output ?? So also no FX Return on the outputs ?

What goes wrong ? Or am I missing something here ??

1. Outdated firmware and drivers. Check the firmware version, current Flash Update Tool on our website includes v91 and DSP26.

2. If that doesn't help: Card defective. You should send it in for checking.

Hi, thanks for the reply ...

TotalMix FX is version 1.50

Firmware of the PCIe card is : v91 - DSP : 26
Driver : v1.24

All up to date I think so ...
Defective then ?

Yes, card defective then. DSP is not starting reliably after boot. Please contact your local distributor.
