Sonar X2a and Mackie Blackjack USB interface ASIO drivers
I'm having trouble getting my new Mackie Blackjack audio interface to use its ASIO drivers.
I've installed the latest 64bit driver from Mackie that is supposed to solve all the problems people were having with this interface. I have found no complaints anywhere concerning the latest driver.
Sonar X2a sees the Mackie interface, but will only let me use its WASAPI input and output drivers. If I switch to ASIO, the Blackjack ASIO drivers are listed in X2's properties form, both for input and output, but they're greyed out and I can't select them. If I set things to WASAPI, then switch to ASIO, X2 tells me I have to use another output device.
I've currently set things up for 24 bit 44.1 khz audio which all soundcards can handle.
Things are normal in the Windows audio management, all devices are present and useable.
Intel Xeon E5-1620
ASUS P9X79WS motherboard with onboard Realtek audio (no ASIO drivers)
16 GB ram
Windows 7, SP1, 64bit Ultimate
Creative X-Fi Titanium HD soundcard (with ASIO drivers)
Mackie Onyx Blackjack USB audio interface (WASAPI and supposedly ASIO drivers)
The Creative soundcard's ASIO drivers work normally, as do the Realtek WASAPI drivers.
All three soundcards appear to be fine except for the Mackie ASIO drivers being greyed out when ASIO is selected.
In the X2a AUD.INI file, the is no mention of ASIO under Mackie, only under Creative.
Before I contact Mackie's support, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what ASIO drivers being present but greyed out might mean.
