Hi all, 

Just swapped one of our Studio machines with a new machine, and Windows 7. 

The existing Echo Gina card isnt recognised by the new machine, just cant seem to see it. ( using the lastest version of drivers from Echo)

Any other stations had a similar issue ?

Thanks 

Thanks,

Chris,

if that was the soundcard we supplied in 2003 it hasn't done too badly w00t !??!!

We started to move away from the Echo range a couple of years back because of manufacturing and supply problems. The last batch of Mia's we had just stopped Windows 7 dead randomly and we never found a solution from them.

Replacing it you have the choice of:

M-Audio Delta 1010LT - this is a 4 channel UNBLANCED PCI soundcard on RCA Phonos

Roland Octa-Capture -  this is a 4 channel USB soundcard on 1/4 jacks

Audioscience - these are professional Analogue /  AES Digitial multi-channel soundcards (XLR Breakout cable)

Lynx - these are professional AES Digitial multi-channel soundcards (XLR Breakout cable)

hope this helps

Regards

Not to contradict David but I was at a station earlier this week that was running Gina 3g's (differrent for Gina of course) on windows 7 on new HP PC's.


We didn't supply them or set them up so cant help with how but it must be possible.

Just as note about  Echo Soundcards, we are running Windows7Pro with the Echo Mia Midi without any lockup issues using the current drivers from Echo.  Again it depends how many in/out's are required.

Hi,

We are using Gina 24 under Windows 7 Professional and we are running software version 8.5 and it is working fine. So I suggest you use 8.5 drivers.

All

Any body using the Roland Octa-Capture cards?

I'm having some issues on Studio where there is a sound leak on cart 2 (channel 2). With fader up full and cart loaded, it is possible to faintly hear what is being played on the other faders. It also draws down the sound quality a little making it more tinnie sounding.

Not sure if it is a fader issue or an octa-capture set up.

Have checked that the windows listener service has been disabled on each of the outputs.

Any screen grabs / advice for optimal settings would be great (incl Direct Mix & Patch Bay settings)

Paul
