Topic: Need help setting up MadifaceUSB and Ferro
I'm trying to set up a new MadifaceUSB and a new Ferrofish16MX via Madi/USB to my Windows 10 desktop to run in Pro Tools 12 at 96. MFUSB is plugged into the Desktop and the Ferrofish and MFUSB are connected via the Madi cable that came with the new MFUSB.
I'm pretty sure I ran all the required drivers and restarted the computer, the MFUSB, and the Ferrofish. "driver_madiface_win_09747"
Pro Tools lets me open the program, which it will not let me do unless it sees an interface. When I play audio in Pro Tools the TotalMix shows levels in Main and Input 1/2 (but not output 1/2) when in Digital Audio Workstation view/mode. I can open the MFUSB settings from the system tray. Oddly the 1 and 2 channels in the Hardware Output of TotalMix are not even there.
I updated the MADI and MASTER settings in the Clock Source to be 96 on the FF.
Clock Mode in the MFUSB is currently set to Internal. Should it be Optical? Input status says Madi Optical sync at 96. Output Format is 96k Frame.
Pro Tools has the audio output set to MADI 1/2. When I click on the audio output of a track it only gives me out options up to 9/10 instead of 15/16.
However, Windows 10 does not show the MFUSB in Sounds and from what I can tell the MFUSB doesn't see the Ferrofish.
I would like to run output channels 15 (L) and 16 (R) out as Main mix via 1/4 inch speaker cable to my subwoofer that goes to the Yamaha monitors or to a mixer that will go to the subwoofer. 1-14 channels I would like to use for outboard gear pres, comps, eq, etc. I would also like to use the headphone out on the Ferrofish that goes to a headphone mixer. I'm not the best with TotalMix and probably need help configuring that, but I need to get Windows to see the MFUSB and the MFUSB to see the Ferrofish first.
Thanks for any suggestions and your time.
