iRig Asio Driver with Cakewalk

Recommended Posts

Hi there,
I am using a iRig HD2 and Cakewalk (Bandlab). Initially I worked with Asio4all, but the connection dropped out frequently, even at high sample rates (same problem in the Amplitube console ) . I've then changed to the new "iRig Asio driver" and it works very well in the Amplitube console in Cubase or in Reaper (at sample rate 128), but I can't make it work in Cakewalk at all!? I only get the message "unable to open audio device".
Thereby, I've set the driver mode to "Asio", the devices to "irig device in/out", and aligned the driver settings accordingly. Of course, I've closed all other programs that access the ASIO driver. Whatever I set, the Asio status in "IK Multimedia irig Device COntrol center" is ""ASIO not active". Thus, I assume that cakewalk is not accessing the driver at all.
Any ideas?
Thank you!
Marc

Same thing here.

Is it all OK for playback?  That works very fine for me. But as soom as I arm a track for recording or turn on input echo I get that same message.

Both on my laptop and my desktop.

The iRig ASIO works fine for me in say Amplitube.

Im quite impressed I can put the latency down to 16 samples and it works fine here.

Yes 16 at mine too :)

But.. .I was maybe too quick.
When trying to record now I got the output from iRig in to the input of iRig when arming a track. So I got both line in and out to in... if it makes sense.
When using ASIO4ALL it behaves the way I expect it (sent this to Morten as well).

Could you have a look?

Yes I already fixed that last night (after the build you got).  In the next release you will not be able to choose a stereo or right channel - that was the problem.

I use an iRig HD live (albeit with an iPod running my amp sims, etc.) and it's really solid. This is all good news for me, because I'm eventually planning to run it with either a small laptop or a NUC or something rather than the iPod. :)

I'm using iRig Pro i/o and can't hear any sound through my headphones using ASIO on "playback and recordings" and Devices set to Input Drivers > iRig Device IN 1 & Output Drivers > iRig Device OUT 1. Echo/Input monitoring is ON.

With ASIO selected, the iRig Pro light goes green when playing (so there is a signal) when using the left channel.

When trying to record using the iRig ASIO driver, I get this error:-

I do hear sound when setting "Playback and Recording" to WASAPI Shared (but latency is very poor). I also hear sound when setting "Playback and Recording" to WASAPI Exclusive (better latency, but very unstable - becomes very distorted every few minutes).

How can I get the iRig Device drivers to work with Cakewalk (they work with Amplitube 4) ?

Thank you Noel. Unfortunately there's still no sound. In addition, now the iRig Pro i/o signal light only shows a signal light for a few seconds after pressing Echo/Input monitoring.

I've updated the iRig firmware and the iRig driver, rebooted the pc several times.

The Cakewalk version running shows 2020.10 Build 075, 64 bit)

Any suggestions and would you know whether you've tested the iRig Pro i/o at your end (it's quite a popular device I believe) .

Hi Noel,

I'm going to return the iRig Pro i/o as their ASIO driver doesn't seem to work with Cakewalk.

Could you confirm that the Focusrite Clarett (solo / 2i2 / 4i4) ASIO drivers have no issues with Cakewalk ?

Hi @Nick Maltzoff,

 

I tested with the iRig pro I/O. It's working for me and @Kai Olav Fredriksen with no problems so it should work for you. Esp is it's working with amplitude. 

Please try the release candidate build 84 which has some more related fixes that we posted yesterday. In this build  you should only see a single mono input.

Let me know if you can't hear the output with this build and we can troubleshoot further. You can also play with the asio driver settings. Also make sure that your master bus is routed to the iiRig output.

Thank you Noel. Build 84 worked immediately (after a pc reboot) and beautifully.  Love the low latency :)

I've already ordered the Focusrite Clarett 4i4 (and the return of the iRig Pro i/o), but for all other iRig Pro i/o owners, they'll be very happy.

If you're reading this and considering purchasing an iRig Pro i/o, I think it's only fair to point out that whilst the iRig Pro i/o worked well with Cakewalk with low latency, the Focusrite Clarett 4i4 that I subsequently received worked better as there was no perceptible latency whatsoever.

Latest version (Build 88) still doesn't work with the iRig HD2.

I am 100% my settings are correct and all is working fine in Reaper, Audacity, Amplitube, Guitar Rig 6 etc.

What to do?

Strange, it works perfectly with my Stomp I/O. I do think I have the HD2 lying around, I will check it and come back to you.

Ben or anyone else still having issues with iRig HD 2 i let us know if this is ok in the latest build. The folks at IK multimedia have validated the build and it works ok for them so if you have issues please contact IK directly and they can help troubleshoot it.
