Topic: [Cured] TotalMix driving me insane
I'm new to RME and TotalMix. I have not yet read the entire manual. Just to put that out there from the get. I'm working on it.
That said, I'm trying to do something pretty simple here and it works, for a moment, before TotalMix seemingly decides to use it's own settings and bug out.
Let me explain:
DAW Mono output 3> Mono output 3 on UCX II > Sampler ok (line)
Sampler > Mono input 7 on UCX II > Mono input 7 in DAW ok (line)
I hear that coming out of one speaker. Ok, change respective channels (Input/Output/SW) to Mono. In preferences I have it set to Center Balance/Pan when changing Mono/Stereo so it's all good so far. ok
SW Playback looks fine, 1 Meter on Mono 3 ok
Hardware Input looks fine 1 Meter on Mono 7 ok
Hardware Output shows signal on both Mono 3 & 4 Why? There's nothing connected to Mono Output 4. Seemingly not ok
I turn down Software Playback on Mono 3, turn up Hardware Input on Mono 7, now I hear my Sampler's output. Perfect ok
Now here is where things go haywire
I switch over to my DAW to load up an audio file I intend to send to the sampler, go back to TotalMix to make sure it's all good and all of a sudden Software Playback on Mono 3 is back up, Hardware Input on Mono 7 is back down, Hardware Output Mono 3 & 4 show nothing. I can hear Software Playback on Mono 3, I'm guessing. So obviously I put Software Playback on Mono 3 back down, (can still hear it at this point) put Hardware Input on Mono 7 back up and then nothing. No sound no matter what I do from there on until I do a complete reset in TotalMix and the cycle continues over and over. There's just no wining for me.
I have uninstalled, reinstalled drivers ect Restarted the computer, restarted the UCX II, all several times. I even Flashed (with latest SW from RME) the UCX II just in case the SW was bugged in the actual unit. I tried all 11 USB 2.x & 3.x ports. I even went back to the USB cable that came with the UCxX II just in case. Non of these helped.
The computer is up to date and new itself running Windows Pro 10.
I've been yelling at a computer all day today. Fun times.
Hopefully it's just a setting I'm unaware of but it sure looks bugged out.
Meanwhile I'll continue reading that boring manual.
