FMOD Studio not seeing ASIO Driver


(John) #1

I’m running Windows 7, 64bit and FMOD Studio 64bit (vers 1.07.07) with a 7.1 surround setup. Unfortunately FMOD Studio is not seeing the ASIO driver for the MOTU 24/IO. I have the latest driver installed for the 24/IO (4.0.6.6814), and the only time I get signal to the IO is if I select Direct Sound or WASAPI which is useless to me since it can only output 2 channels. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Just to clarify, are you seeing no entry in the Studio device drop down list, or are you seeing a device but getting no audio?

I do not see the device on the drop down entry. However I do see it in my DAW that I use to design in.

Can you try the 32 bit version of FMOD Studio? Can you see it there?

I do not see the ASIO driver in the 32bit app as well. I’ve also tested FMOD on other ASIO drivers that was installed, and FMOD doesn’t see those as well. Can FMOD be looking at the ASIO drivers in the wrong directory?

A couple of other things to try, open Studio, go to Window -> Console -> Logging and check for any errors / warnings when toggling between ASIO and No Sound. Also if you go to the registry: Start -> Run -> Regedit, what do you see in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ASIO ? This is what FMOD reads to get your ASIO list.

I’m getting errors when switching to ASIO drivers.

fmod_outputasio.cpp(185), OutputASIO::enumerate(): IASIO::init failed for driver 0: ‘Unknown Error’
fmod_outputasio.cpp(185), OutputASIO::enumerate(): IASIO::init failed for driver 5: ‘Device not connected’
fmod_outputasio.cpp(185), OutputASIO::enumerate(): IASIO::init failed for driver 6: ‘Device not connected’
fmod_outputasio.cpp(185), OutputASIO::enumerate(): IASIO::init failed for driver 6: ‘’.

…and so on.

There is a bug where if the first ASIO driver fails initialization, for example due to the device being disconnected the enumerated list will not be shown.

EDIT: This is fixed for 1.07.08.
