When you first plug in the quattro, it will be recognized and autoconfigure as hw:1 . Unfortunately, at your first reboot, the snd-usb-audio module will load before the pci or integrated soundcard, making the quattro hw:0 .
When you connect a USB audio device to a Windows 10 Version 1703-based computer the first time, the operating system detects the device but loads the standard USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) instead of the specific device driver.
This issue occurs because the USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) isn't classified as a generic driver in Windows 10 Version 1703. Therefore, the system assumes that a compatible, nongeneric driver is installed for the device even though the driver is generic.
If the device is not yet connected, first install the device-specific driver, such as by using the appropriate installer. After the device-specific driver is installed, Windows 10 will select that driver instead of the standard USB audio 2.0 driver when you first connect the device.

This compact mixer is perfect for computer-recording setups, intimate live-sound environments, video-editing and production studios, and portable podcasting setups. It outputs line-level analog audio and stereo 16-bit, 44.1/48 kHz digital audio over USB for recording low-noise, CD-quality mixes directly to your Mac or PC. The MultiMix 4 USB FX mixer has four input channels, all of which can accept a 1/4\" line input. You can plug XLR microphones into channels one and two, including condensers thanks to the selectable 48V-phantom power supply. You can also plug a guitar or bass directly into channel two's switchable high-impedance input. A stereo, 1/4\" headphone output has its own level control for private monitoring. Ideal for live sound engineering or home recording, MultiMix 4 USB FX features onboard volume, pan, and EQ controls for making quick, accurate adjustments to your mix. The MultiMix 4 USB FX mixer has a two-channel, five-stage, multicolor LED meter for visual monitoring the main output level. Channels one and two offer switchable high-pass filtering at 75Hz to reduce low-frequency rumble, handling, and wind noise. Channels one and two provide high- and low-shelving EQs, independent gain trims, and have independent pan controls. For convenient stereo mixing and recording, channels three and four are configured as a stereo pair at the level, EQ and pan controls.

Its compact, durable design and pristine sound makes it the perfect foundation for portable, multichannel computer-based productions on the go. With quality and performance that far exceeds its size and price, QUAD-CAPTURE stands at the head of its class.
The choice of the soundcard (or audio interface) depends on many factors, among which recording quality, number of inputs, MIDI I/O, mic/guitar inputs (XLR etc.), external vs internal, and of course price.
n-Track is compatible with most audio interfaces on the market, including USB, Firewire and PCI. n-Track on Windows is compatible with Asio, Wasapi, WaveRT, WDM or MME audio drivers, while on Mac it works with any CoreAudio device. Follows a list of a few soundcards that have proven to work well with n-Track Studio. New audio devices are released all the time and others quickly go out of production so the list below may not be always up to date.
The new MMI control scheme is quite a good evolution of the old MMI controller, but I get the feeling that it's been optimized for drivers who are already familiar with Audi's interface. For newcomers to the brand, the controls can be a bit confusing -- perhaps not overwhelmingly so, but my passengers had issues with the more spread-out controls, particularly the toggles for the infotainment mode changes. You'll first want to spend some time getting comfortable with this setup before you hit the road.
You've also got steering-wheel controls at your disposal and a small, flexible, and functional information display in the instrument cluster that allows the driver to jump between turn-by-turn navigation directions, contacts for hands-free calling, and the current audio source with the ability to browse radio presets with a thumb roller.
Q to oF audio gurus. I could put a separate listener to a second soundStream, how would I go abouts syncing output of a single multichannel dsp chain to two soundStreams Suppose my chain outputs 4*bufferSize, 1,2 go to interface 1, 3,4 go to interface 2, in sync
If you only need outputs and want USB I would try something very simple with class compliant drivers, like a budget 7.1 usb sound card. They do not have the flexibility of a more pro soundcard, that usually have some mid level interface for routing and mixing and duplexing, but the chances of compatibility seem a little higher.
The default behavior of the snd-usb-audio driver is to list the devicecapabilities at startup and activate the required mode when requiredby the applications: for instance if the user is recording in a24bit-depth-mode and immediately after wants to switch to a 16bit-depth mode,the snd-usb-audio module will reconfigure the device on the fly.
One exception is the hw:1,2 port which was reported to be Little Endiancompliant (supposedly supporting S16_LE) but processes in fact only S16_BE streams.This has been fixed in kernel 2.6.23 and above and now the hw:1,2 interfaceis reported to be big endian in this default driver mode.
Due to the hardware constraints described above, the device initialization madeby the Alsa driver in default mode may result in a corrupted state of thedevice. For instance, a particularly annoying issue is that the sound capturedfrom the Ai interface sounds distorted (as if boosted with an excessive highvolume gain).
When device_setup is given as a parameter to the snd-usb-audio module, theparse_audio_endpoints function uses a quirk calledaudiophile_skip_setting_quirk in order to prevent AltSettings notcorresponding to device_setup from being registered in the driver.
I've been working on my iMac 27\" with M-Audio Fast Track Pro in the last months, always at 24 bit, without any problems... I don't know why, but today the audio is distorted when it sounds throught Fast Track Pro, and I've not made any changes to the configuration, hardware or software. I thought it was a problem with the USB audio interface, but I noticed that it continues still working good with my MacBook Pro. Why not with my iMac
I've been looking for a solution: I've tried to reboot, repair permissons, clear caches, run mainteinance scripts, reset PRAM, reinstall M-Audio driver, unplug all USB devices, turn off Wifi and Bluetooth... but nothing solves the problem, and the distortion of audio persists.
The Audient Evo 4 is a compact 22 USB audio interface that produces amazing audio considering its price point. It is a class compliant interface that features a maximum 96kHz sample rate and a 24 bit depth.
Audient has been around for more than 2 decades. Their products have always been great and the Evo is no different! Prior to its release, Audient had great success with their budget-friendly iD interfaces (they have a large following in the audio interface market). The Evo line consists of the Evo 4, Evo 8, and the Evo 16. The main difference between the 3 models lies in their number of I/Os. The Evo 8 has 2 extra line outputs, 2 extra XLR/TRS mic inputs, and 1 additional headphone socket. The Evo 16 features 2 headphone sockets, 8 input channels, and 8 output channels in addition to ADAT I/O. However, all 3 units contain the same components, similar controls, and produce the same sound quality.
The main thing you should look out for when choosing an iPhone audio interface is device compatibility. Audio interfaces that are fully compatible with iPhones are hard to come by. You can find a lot of audio interfaces that work with iPhones, however, most of them are either plagued with driver issues or are extremely unstable. Some newer audio interface models also have features/controls that can be exclusively accessed through a PC/Mac software. For that reason, you need to make sure that your interface has sufficient hardware controls or at least supports a basic IOS version of its control software.
I can just tell everyone: \"avoid the m-audio quattro usb!\" i nevergot it working with more then one stereo out (debian/ubuntu,alsa/jack), furthermore the card is really sensitive to the powerenvironment - i strongly encourage people to use a separate powercircuit when performing on stage. it just crashes, even worse onwindows. i know three other people with similar problems. this cardhas great sound, but otherwise it's a troublesome interface.
Hmm... Can someone please verify that the quattro is really as badas the guy above says it is I'm questioning his credibility... hecalls the quattro a card twice. The quattro isn't a card, it is abox that connects via usb. Hard to imagine someone who had actuallyused it or even just seen it would make that mistake 2 times. Isthis person just messing with wiki, or does he work for an m-audiocompetitor or something
Getting it to work with Linux/Alsa was trivial. The USB audio chip is aBurr-Brown PCM2902E stereo audio codec supporting sampling rates up to48kHz and is well-supported by the snd-usb-audio driver. In my own case,I just rmmod-ed the snd-intel8x0 module for the onboard sound card(which I have always hated), and when I plugged in the device, thehotplug and usb subsystems identified it right away and loaded thesnd-usb-audio module.
DJ controllers typically do not do any actual audio processing. Instead, theysend signals (typically MIDI or HID over a USB cable) to thecomputer to instruct DJ software how to manipulate the audio. Many DJcontrollers include an audio interface with2 separate stereo outputs built into the device. This allows the DJ totransport and setup only one piece of hardware in addition to a laptop. Somedevices can be used as both a controller and hardware mixer. 153554b96e
