Either a bug with Focusrite or Live 8.jszy wrote:Hi,
I am using Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 as the audio interface, the front panel is working, but I cant get the line input to work.
Plug my guitar (through a preamp), into line input 5, the mixer software (mixcontrol) detects it, I can hear it loud and clear with the monitor headphone, but Ableton Live does not detect any signal no matter which input I chose. (I am using it on Windows 7 by the way.)
Could anyone tell me what the problem is here? Thanks in advance.
Are you using latest drivers and Ableton 8 update?
If so I recommend trying a different DAW and not to worry Reaper can be downloaded and fully tested for free.
If Reaper works then the problem is with Live, if Reaper don't work, the. I suggest calling Focusrite tech support.
Also you can download ASIO4All and run the Focusrite as a shell inside of that driver. If that works, then you could use that until Focusrite comes up with a fix.
