The XP volume control for FW-1884 Analog 1:2 remains greyed-out.
That's because XP is "XP-ecting" you (sorry, bad pun) you to use the TASCAM mixer. Before you do anything else open SONAR (create a "New" project, any template you wish to use). Click on Options-->Audio-->General. Click on the ASIO Panel button. This should open the TASCAM's mixer and settings window. You can then configure the TASCAM as you need it to work.
If that doesn't work try this. (If some of this is redundant, bear with me. I've C&P'ed this from a text file because I got tired of typing it over & over again in the forums). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
With SONAR closed, delete the AUD.INI and TTSSEQ.INI files from your computer. They are normally found in the following location:
C:\Documents and Settings\"Your Windows Login Name"
\Application Data\Cakewalk\Sonar XXX
The "Application Data" folder is, by default, invisible. To make it visible go to "Tools"->"Folder Options"->"View"
. Look for the folder "Hidden Files & Folders" and enable the "Show hidden files and folders" option.
Reboot your computer (not a necessity but I like starting with a "clean slate") and open SONAR. You will be informed that you haven't selected any MIDI Output devices. Click on "Choose MIDI Outputs Now". You should check the boxes for the TASCAM in both the Input and Output windows of the dialog box. The only other option should be "Microsoft GS WaveTable..." which you should NOT select.
Open a "New" blank project using the template of your choice. Click on "Options"->"MIDI Devices" and you should see **YOUR DEVICE**
selected as the option. Now click on "Options"->"Audio"->"Drivers" and you should see only the **YOUR DEVICE**
Analog ASIO and S/PDIF options. Make sure you've selected **YOUR DEVICE**
as the Input and Output. Unless you have any S/PDIF devices connected to **YOUR DEVICE**
there's no need to select that option.
Click on the "Advanced" tab and make sure **YOUR DEVICE**
shows up in the "Device" window for "Record Latency Adjustment" box. Set the "Driver Mode" for ASIO.
Click on the "General" tab and make sure **YOUR DEVICE**
is selected as the Playback & Record "Timing Master". - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If that doesn't solve the problem my next suggestion would be to completely uninstall the TASCAM (using the Windows Control Panel-->Add or Remove Programs function) and then reinstall it (making sure you're following the installation instructions carefully).
Hope this helps. Let us know what happens.
