motu828 + asio

Post by gw » Fri Feb 15, 2002 3:49 am

i'm running a powerbook w/ the motu828. the soundmanager drivers for the 828 work fine, but when i attempt enabling the asio drivers i get the following message..

Could not open the audio device output /
MOTU 828

the asio drivers are installed properly into the live directory, so i can't figure out why things won't gel.

do you have the latest version of Live? 1.1? This problem was fixed in the version prior to that [can't remember number] and works flawlessly for me using 828 driver v2.1 and Live 1.1 on OS 9.2.2

I have the same problem! I'm running a 2408 on a DP 533, MidiExpress XT, FreeMidi 1.46, MAS 2.33, and pci 324 driver v2.1...

...If I could get this to work I'd be in heaven.
