As you may recall from our last episode, Our Hero (that would be me) was desperately trying to figure out how to get his M-Audio ProjectMix I/O to actually record in 64-bit Cubase 5 under Windows 7 on the new Toshiba Qosmio Intel i7-based laptop that he'd bought for the purpose. Having tested the system at home, he took it to Capricon where it failed ignominiously. Fortunately, not so ignominiously as to stop passing sound to the house system, but badly enough that the recording was a failure. Subsequent investigation revealed:
I'm running the test again now. *sigh*
Update: I ran the test again for an hour and forty-five minutes. No clicks, no pops, no runs, no hits, no errors. :)
I think I can use this thing now.
