Hi,

My old computer died and am trying to set up a win. xp machine with my old 20 bit layla sound card and nTrack. From what I have read my best bet is using the MME drivers, but not seeming to have any luck. I downloaded the latest know drivers from echo audio for the layla. nTrack shows the layla inputs 1-8 on the vu's but nothing registers when I hook up a microphones. Does anyone have any insights on this?

I know the sound card may not be ideal, but it has worked great for me in the past (with nTrack) and produced great results.

Thanks,

What operating system are you using?  I if you have Windows 7 try installing and running the software as XP in  compatibility mode.  I have a Layla 20, but have not tried to use it in a while.  As you have no doubt noted the software and unit are no longer supported by Echo.  As for nTrack, I can't be sure but I think it will work if the software for the Layla runs correctly, and I feel confident that  XP would be the very newest operating system that will work (check the Echo site).

Does the Layla software indicate that it is hearing the sound?  If so, be aware that the record button ate bottom of the recordingVUmster has options on how the sound is handed by nTrack

I am running XP and have a Darla card.  I have to use MME drivers and those seem to work fine.  I do get crashes and sudden speed changes (song suddenly plays slowly) if I change things in the tracks while playing or when i paste things into a track sometimes.  I just need to save and restart the program and everything is back to normal.  Odd, and a pain, but workable.

I am not sure how to test that the Layla is 'hearing the sound'. When I press record, I get the blue screen of death - computer seizes. The VU's show some activity when not recording, but it is with a great delay and then stays fixed.

Thanks ZeCoop for the info that you have some success with the Darla - that is encouraging...

I am not sure what to do to get this to work, any thoughts for trouble shooting?

Thanks,

I was suggesting that the Layla console might not be receiving the signal.  There are also some settings in the console that are not  all that intuitive.  I don't have XP operating on any computer to check things here.  Check to make certain that Ntrack is set to 16 bit.  The Layla 20 will not work with 24 bit and that might crash things.  If Ntrackis shutting down, you have the option of sending tha dump file to ntrack to be annualized..
What version of ntrack are you using?

Thanks for replies bax3. Yes, I follow you regarding the signal - I am just not sure how I can test it? And, where do I check that Ntrack is set to 16 bit? (I don't see any options under preferences)

Also, I just purchased the new version of Ntrack - 7.03

Thanks,

I assume you are talking about the box that says 'freeze file bit depth' ?  If so, yes that was set to 16. Any other thoughts as to why it is not working with the Layla sound card?
