Hi all,

I'm having an issue with sample rates when opening Cakewalk. My interface is a MOTU UltraLite Mk3. When I open Cakewalk, I can see the sample rates cycling from 44, 48, 88 and so on until it lands at 196 and does not work with Cakewalk. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Probably important to note that I recently did a lot of upgrades on my Alienware PC  for gaming purposes and didn't have this issue before. I upgraded my hard drive from HDD to SSD, RAM, the video card and installed a liquid cooling system. I have occasionally been able to get it work after randomly messing with settings and reinstalling drivers. But the sound will only work for Cakewalk and no other audio on my computer. Any help would be much appreciated!!!

For a device to work with Cakewalk and Windows it is important that both Cakewalk and Windows are set to the same sample rate.

The same is true for any other application that can set the audio sample rate. Fortunately, most programs use the Windows settings.

Here is one way to set the sample rate in Win10

Thanks for the feedback scook! Unfortunately I've already tried that and am still having the same issue. I wonder if maybe it's a software issue/setting within Cakewalk... my whole computer sometimes crashes when I even attempt to open the DAW. ugh!

This suggests driver or hardware problems.

There may be some indications in the Windows event log.
