I have been using an Roland Edirol UA-1Ex Audio Interface for a long time with Audacity. Although Win 10 is not set up to use the UA-1Ex, a simple tweak makes it work. The UA-1Ex In and Out lights up correctly in the instrument, UA-1Ex, computer, UA-Ex1, mixer, amp, speaker chain. So far, so good.
Audacity settings: Win WASAPI, Speakers (3-UA-1EX (loopback)), 2 stereo recording channel, Speakers (3-UA-1Ex), recording slider up, transport options software playthrough on, Project Rate 48000 Hz.
Windows: Win 10 home Version 1909, OS build 18363.1139, 1/8/2020, 16 GB RAM Lenovo Y50 gaming laptop
Win Sound settings: Output Speakers (3-UA-1EX), Input Stereomix Realtek High Def. Audio (no other choice)
Win Sound shows UA-1Ex in the device list.
problem: Audacity doesn’t record, although cursor is running, only flat line. Input and output go through and I can hear the instrument coming out of the speakers. Good volume. Switching Software Playthrough off causes the cursor to freeze, I have to reboot Audacity to get out.
Trying MME, Win Direct Sound, Stereomix, Loudspeakers options don’t work. Tried Project Rate 44100 Hz. Changed the UA-1Ex input volume, no effect.
I checked the comments and topics, manual and searched online to no avail. What is the problem? Thanks for your input.
