Using CW with Mackie ProFX16v3 mixer via USB....

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use CW with my new Mackie ProFX16 v3 mixer via USB.   I downloaded and installed the Mackie driver for it, but for some reason it doesn't let me choose the Mackie in my Preferences, they're greyed out - see screenshot below.   Does anyone know why this might be?

Disable AIO IN 1 on the top and see what happens.  All existing drivers have to unload before the new one an be utilized.  No fair having a different driver for IN and for OUT.

I had a similar problem once with my Focusrite after upgrading the drivers. 
Turned out i didn’t have ASIO selected within Cakewalk. On selecting that, then closing and re-opening Cakewalk, all was back to normal.

Good luck,

Many thanks all.

I finally got it working, using ASIO4ALL, but it was very disappointing.  The sound via USB was nothing like as good as that using my RME Aio soundcard, and the desk's controls didn't all operate in the same way as with connections to my soundcard.   I realise I've bought a mixer that is probably 90% for live band use and 10% for home recording, despite the marketing blurb.  I bought it in order to have something with a much smaller footprint than my very old Tascam 2600 16:8:2, which I think I'll go back to, and sell the Mackie. 🙁
