removing audio interface options from Live Audio Preferences

Post by behndy » Mon Nov 30, 2020 9:36 pm

hello!

i've gone through a few audio interfaces, and they all still show up as options in Audio Preferences, even though i've removed them from my Windows pc.

is this a registry issue? they haven't been purged from Windows at some level?

or is there a way to remove all out of date options from Live Audio Preferences?

thannnnnks!

Probably you still have the management software and drivers installed. Not sure as the interfaces I have will only appear as options in Live if they are actually connected to the machine. Wouldn't have thought they would be available if they weren't';t physically attached to the system.

May help to know what interfaces these are.

yeah, the only interface connected is the Presonus StudioLive AR16c i'm using right now.

what shows up that shouldn't be there is -

Audiobox ASIO Driver
Komplete Audio 6
ASIO Presonus Firestudio
Studio 192 ASIO
Studio 192 USB
StudioLive Classic USB
StudioLive Series III

any of them, when they're selected, it says "Failed to open [X DRIVER].

i'm pretty most of the StudioX stuff will disappear once i unistall the PreSonus drivers when i move to the Tascam mixer that gets here Monday, but the Komplete is... jebus. i haven't had that for 4 or 5 years?

whichhhhhhhh makes me realize it MIGHT be time to get a new pc.

even though this one seems to be doing okay.

JUST SAYING.
