E-Mu 0404 USB & Windows 8

Has anyone got an E-Mu 0404 USB audio interface working under Windows 8? 

If so what drivers are you using?

    That's really a fantastic audio card. Too bad there's virtually no support for it.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on Windows 8 drivers ... they just came out with Windows 7 drivers.

    I just threw out my EMU-0404 PCI card a couple months ago ... it just didn't seem to work right on anything but a Pentium XP based system.

    It is a great card and I've been running my Emu-0404 PCExpress card with windows 7 64bit & 32bit perfectly well for the last two years.

    I'm still running an EMU 1820m with no problems on Win 7 64 bit, but I also have doubts about them issuing any newer drivers. If the Win 7 drivers don't work in Win 8, we may have to choose between staying on Win 7 or doing both a new OS and a new interface. That's life!

    1820m here, win 8 64.  using all inputs/outputs, with ADAT I/O connected to mixer, and both MIDI ports. Currently at 44.1/24,   X2,   8.5.3.  Works fine.  Using the last drivers published.

    I also tested the 0404 usb, with this computer, trying to get the fader port to work. Interface works. Not Faderport.

    X2a cured the computer freezing when exiting Sonar.

    The main problem I have had with the 1820, win 7 32/64, and win 8 64,  is the drivers do not play well with the Faderport. Hence not using the Faderport.

    That's great. The version I had was the original PCI one, not the PCI-e ... it was really old.

    I had the PCIe version on Win7 64.  Could not get the SPDIF to work correctly.  Had them RMA it, second version could not work.    After it was too late to return, MAudio put out better drivers for the AP2496 it was supposed to replace.


    Boo creative.

    I HAVE A FIX!!!! AFTER HOURS and hours of scouring the web nobody had a solution so I figured it out trial and error. First plug the emu 0404 in, and go to device manager. Make sure it shows up there, even tho it says no drivers available. THEN AND ONLY THEN INSTALL THAT LINK IS TO THE WINDOWS 7 BETA DRIVER 32 BIT. The reason it keeps saying the no product is available on your pc error is because device manager isn't reading the emu as connected. THAT is the product the error message is talking about. Please share this as I almost had to buy a new audio interface and definitely saved a lot of hassle by figuring this out. Hope I helped.

    I have an EMU1820m and I upgraded my DAW from Win7 64-bit to Windows 8 64-bit and it works.  The only thing that was a little bit of a problem was that my windows system sounds weren't playing back at all when playing back videos and such.  I ended up routing the system sounds to my HD TV/Hdmi and looping back from the TV with an optical out to the optical in on my EMU1820.  Works fine.  Still a great card for my Sonar X3 system.   Sadly, Creative is ignoring the EMU line and future drivers probably won't be developed.

    Thanks for this info guys. My 1820M has been working great on Win7 with the beta drivers but I had been wondering if I would be in trouble if I would need to upgrade to Win8. Nice to know it still works well. I love that card, it has enough I/O for my small setup, sounds great and has pretty flexible routing. Not to mention good latency figures.

    I have an Emu 0404 PCI card with the last updated drivers working just fine on a Windows 8.1 x64 home built computer. All music programs - Sonar X3d, Windows Media Player, VLC Player and standalone versions of VSTis get along quite nicely with it.

    DeBro, good to see you! My daughter was asking if you were still around not long ago. Some of your tunes from our SHS4 days are still among our favorites.
    Glad to see there's hope for my 0404PCI. It's a great, but underrated soundcard. I do wish they had made more of an effort to stay in the game.

    RobertB good to see you too in the Sonar X Series forum. Over the past few years I've been much involved in my visual art. However, now I've returned to composing, recording, mixing music and rendering my vocals in Sonar X3d. My first two projects are in the final mix stages and I'll post a link in the Songs Forum when all done. As to the Emu 0404, this card has served me well since the SHS4 days and to this point is still going strong.

    A recent release of drivers for Win7? Where did you find them? I just looked on their web site and the latest release is 2011.

    I've been running the PCI version of the 0404 card for at least six years, maybe eight (don't remember when I bought it). The only trouble I ever had was that--for a while--PatchMix would suddenly and spontaneously become invisible to the OS and I'd have to reinstall. But it doesn't do that any longer.
     
    Frankly, I'll run this card into the ground unless I get a sudden windfall. And I mean a big windfall.
