    Hej

    Does anyone know when the drivers will come for 64-bit vista ? The powercore software is the only that I miss, in 64 bit before I change my DAW to vista 64bit.

      DiscoLfo I would take the 32 bit drivers please and thank you.



      Just came back to recording after 1 year away and was astonished that TC still doesn't have th 32bit vista driver let alone the 64bit



      My MoTU has them and they are solid

      Purusha According to the v3 thread, we're not even getting Vista 32 bit drivers as part of the new release.



      Gah!

      Purusha I think TC have said they've nearly cracked Vista. The fear is: they're only doing 32 bit drivers, not 64 bit drivers.

      kdarbyshirebrya Hi Hagan & all @ TC,



      First off, echoing what has already been said, many thanks for the continued support & driver improvements, very much appreciated.



      DPC:



      My DPC issue still persists with this driver BUT I'm beginning to think it's a reporting anomaly rather than anything actually wrong. My pops'n'ticks have gone away despite seeing some latency spikes, whether this is new driver related I don't know. Using 'latencymon' (http://www.resplendence.com/latencymon) it looks like 'wdf01000.sys - kernel mode driver framework runtime' suffers from DPC issues...and it appears to be called by the TC Near driver. Interestingly swapping to legacy firewire driver puts the ISR & DPC load onto an 'ohci1394.sys' rather than wdf01000.sys and this doesn't report latency spikes. Make of that what you will but I'm not convinced that TC Near actually has a problem.



      Minor notes:



      Setup->Output->Source column 'Link button' tooptip has 'Tooltip::IO2_Output::LinkButton' as the tooltip.



      Setup->Output->Speaker Setup->Assign column 'main/sub' tooltips have 'Tooltip::IO2_Output::AssignComboBox' as the tooltip





      Enhancement requests:



      1 - Improve monitor bass management: Please can you provide a speaker type of 'Large' in addition to 'main & sub' which has no bass management facility associated with it. 'Main' should be re-named 'Small' and should retain the existing bass management filtering options. This would allow a monitoring configuration of full range loudspeakers for Left & Right, with smaller (and less bass capable) Center & Surrounds. Or indeed full range L,C,R but limited Surrounds. If you *really* wanted to get clever then have different crossover settings for each speaker! In my opinion either of the above options would significantly enhance the bass management section of the SK48 and allow it to be a great monitor controller....even standalone!



      2) Really minor cosmetic enhancement: Can you get the master volume ring displayed in TC Near control panel to light up & correspond with the remote control's real display please.





      Once again, thanks for your continued support of the product and your great work.



      Kevin

      The TC Near sys is not a KMDF based driver since there is no firewire KMDF support from Microsoft. What you see here is a result of Microsofts "new" 1394 bus driver using KMDF. If there are DPC spikes introduced by wdf01000.sys than its because something is fishy in the KMDF based 1394 bus driver stage.

      As reported here before we have seen various issues with both implementations, so we cannot recommend the use of one or another. It seems that either the legacy 1394 bus driver operates better on one system or the "new" KMDF based one. In a few cases both will show issues though or there are even 1394 controller hardware issues.

      But most systems will work flawless with both implementations.

    We are happy to provide an preview on TC Audio Interface Software 3.5
    TC Audio Interface Software 3.5 for OSX, 64bit and 32bit Windows

    Please find here the latest TCNear related development. Please always keep in mind that you should avoid using this software on a production machine, as regressions are to be expected.



    Some advice to fix issues as quick as possible:
    [list=*]
  • Please be descriptive as possible!
    What seems to be obvious on your system, may seem completely different in our test setup.
    "It doesn't work" is not a bug report.

  • Reproduce an issue! Include detailed steps on how to reproduce an issue in your report: What happened when your were doing what?

  • Verify an issue! Please make sure its not an user error or side effect of something. (It takes a lot of time to reproduce bogus issues here! Time we would rather spent in fixing issues.)

  • Always make sure we know your Konnekt hardware and TCNear software version, OS Version, if its 32 or 64bit, DAW Version (if related to the bug reported) and any other software involved in this bug.
    Include all information also if you need to submit additional files to [email protected].

    I noticed yesterday that the UM2 Windows drivers made my Behringer are gone.

    Knowing that the UCG102 shares the same driver, I went to it's download page, and it's also gone:

    http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/UM2.aspx
    http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/UCG102.aspx

    What's going on here? Did I catch the website during an update gone wrong? Or is something else going on?

    Ultimately ... are they coming back?

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Seth

      Michael_Lapke Hi Seth,



      Welcome to the forums! I'm not sure why you can't see the drivers but I just checked and they are indeed there. (both links) After clicking either of the links you provided just click on "download" and then scroll down and you should see it.
      • May 22, 2015
    • SethCall
      SethCall Hi Michael,



      Thanks for the response.



      If I click either link, and scroll all the way to the bottom, the only driver available in the section called 'Drivers' is ASIO4ALL (definitely not the driver I'm looking for).



      This is quite unexpected; until very recently, someone could also find both the Behringer 32bit and 64bit Windows drivers in that section as well.



      Are you seeing more than just the ASIO4ALL driver? Or has something indeed gone off the rails here?



      Thanks!



      Seth

      DavidWilson1 Hey Michael -



      I have the same question. The only driver listed now is ASIO4ALL, which is not good. Where did the Windows ASIO driver written by Behringer specifically for the UM2 go? It's not there, and it used to be. The Behringer driver was/is good. ASIO4ALL not good.

    • SethCall
      Michael_Lapke Seth,



      You will notice underneath where the ASIO4ALL driver is on those webpages it says:



      ASIO4ALL USB Audio Driver

      - Combined 32/64-bit 3rd party driver for Windows

      - Supports Windows XP to 7 (32/64-bit)

      - For OS X no drivers required



      This is indeed the driver you are are looking for. Have you tried installing it yet?

      Looks like, from the description on the store, that it can control the GEQ/TEQ, if you are using it... as I do not, typically, so I would not use this... when he comes out with FPM app, that will be nice and will easily get my money, even if I only use it until the offical Q app comes out... if this controled PEQ/VEQ, I would happily give him my $9 (c'mon its only $9 and he spent the time to make it).

    I've been having this problem since I switched to Win7 x64 about a year ago using beta drivers, but now with the v2.5 drivers out, it's time to get this fixed.

    The problem is that WDM simply loses all sound sporadically. ASIO continues to function when this happens. To fix it, I have to either unplug/reconnect the FireWire cable to the computer or restart the Windows Audio system service.

    Here's a description of the setup:
    - My device is a Konnekt Live.
    - The TC software package is version 2.5.0.6906, control panel is 2.5.0 r3583, and 1394 driver is 3.5.3.8786.
    - My motherboard is an Abit IP35 PRO(P35+ICH9R).
    - The FireWire chipset is an on-board TI TSB43AB22.
    - I have no DPC latency problems or other sound cards (on-board is disabled).

    I'm convinced this is a driver error, because:
    - The exact same hardware did not have this problem under 32-bit Windows XP.
    - The problem seems to occur more frequently when programs which make heavy use of sound are left open, such as webpages with Flash, video games, iTunes, etc.
    - Restarting the Windows Audio service is a temporary fix.
    - ASIO continues to work while WDM dies, indicating that it's not a FireWire problem.
    - I have a friend with the exact same problem on a different computer with an Impact Twin.

    My current work around is a bat file that restarts Windows Audio, it looks like this:
    net stop "Windows Audio"
    net start "Windows Audio"

    The Event Viewer only has one type of recurring error which seems interesting, though I can't confirm if it correlates 100% to my audio loss problems:
    Windows Audio Device Graph glitch threshold count exceeded 
    Count : 0x0x33

    As a programmer by trade, this is exactly the kind of thing that frustrates me the most. I know it's a programming error, and I know that I would fix it if it were open source. But instead, I have to rely on TC to get it right. I think this is about all of the useful debugging information that I can provide, and I hope someone (preferably a developer) at TC will reply to me and tell me what the status of this bug is.

    If TC can't fix this, I'm not sure what to do about it. It looks like I could either get a new audio device (which I do not want to do, since this hardware is fine, if it just had proper drivers), or I could start disassembling the TC driver and learn some kernel hacking to try and fix it (which I'd love to be able to do, but I just don't have the time).

    If anyone else has a clue as to what might technically be wrong (in case I go the driver hacking approach), please pitch in your ideas to this thread.

      nameless1 Exactly my experience. I've been complaining here about this for some time, but you wrapped it up much better (and I'm no system programmer). This is by far the most frustrating thing for me regarding my Konnekt.

      maqr Yeah, nameless1, it's definitely a driver bug. For now, it's slightly less annoying if you make the bat file that I described, but clearly that's not the right answer.



      If I could reproduce the error on-demand it would make debugging it easier (for me and for TC). I'm trying to put together a little app that causes the crash, so I can find out where TC went wrong in the driver. Finding the bug should be possible, but I'm not too confident that I can work out a binary patch for a kernel driver. I might be coming to you for help testing



      edit: do you happen to know if this also affected Windows Vista?

      nameless1 Never used it with Vista, sorry. Yes the bat file is helpful, but fixed driver would be much better - I hate when I lose sound during gaming - restarting the game is needed - or skype call - I use my Konnekt for everything

      Unfortunately TC seems to care 90 % about ASIO.

      We have exactly the same problem.

      rune If you are experiencing this type of issue, try the following application to check for ISR, DPC, and pagefault issues:

      The TCNear driver is obviously not working in a vaccum here and there could be a number of things that cause that type of behavior.

    Hi Everyone,

    The X32 features a comprehensive Scene Management system that allows all parameters and settings to be instantly recalled at the touch of a button. The 100 scenes on the X32 can be imported and exported via USB Stick and parameters can be eliminated from Recall using the SAFE options. In this Tech Talk we will go into detail about how to use the SCENES menu on the X32.

    Scenes vs. Shows: Know The Difference
    Scene - A scene is a single file containing a snapshot of the settings of the X32. When saving a scene, all parameters are ALWAYS saved. Upon recall, you have the options to "Safe", or prevent, certain parts of the scene from being recalled.

    Shows - A Show File contains the 100 scenes that fill the slots of the X32's scene memory. Only a single show file can be loaded on the X32 at a time.
    *NOTE: When recalling a SHOW from USB, ALL scene files on the X32 would be overwritten with the scene files from that show.

    Import / Export from USB:
    The X32 allows you to import and export both individual scenes and entire shows. Individual scenes can be saved to USB directly from the SCENES menu. To export a whole show, or to import a scene or show, press UTILITY while viewing the SCENES menu. You can also Copy, Paste, and Delete Scenes while viewing this UTILITY menu.

    Using XControl for Enhanced Scene Management:
    Aside from easy setup and greater control of your mix, XControl software expands the scene capabilities of the X32.
    There are 2 main benefits to using XControl for Scene Management:
    1. 100 More Scenes: When using XControl as an online editor with the console, you have access to a second page of 100 scenes. This means that while using XControl you have 100 internal scenes labeled “Console” PLUS the 100 scenes labeled “XControl” bringing the total scenes available using XControl to 200.
    2. XControl has the ability to insert a scene between two scenes. This allows you to go back and create a space for a new scene at the beginning of the show without having to move all the following scenes down manually. This is particularly useful for theatre use with the X32.

    Scene Safes:
    As stated earlier, Scene Safes will EXCLUDE that parameter from being recalled. For example, when walking into a new venue that has an X32, you could bring in your USB stick and recall your scene but "safe" the routing so that you would not overwrite that venue's routing configuration.
    This means that if you want to recall ALL parameters, all of these boxes need to be unchecked (not orange).

    Descriptions of Safe Parameters:
    "Home" Screen Scene Safes: The safes on this menu are on a scene-by-scene basis. This means that you need to check the desired safe on each scene you plan to recall individually.

    Routing I/O - All settings in the ROUTING menu
    Output Patch - Only the output pages of the ROUTING menu
    Preamp (HA) - Mic Gain and Phantom Power for inputs
    Configuration - Any recallable settings in the SETUP menu such as link preferences, panning mode, and bus pre-configuration
    Chan Process - Channel Strip processing for INPUT channels (starting with phase flip)
    Mix Buses - Mix Bus "Channel Strip" processing
    Effects - All settings within the EFFECTS page
    Talkback - All settings within the Talkback Settings

    The settings on the following pages are global and will apply no matter which scene is recalled:

    "Param Safe" Screen Scene Safes: Allows you to globally safe certain parameters across all input channels and mix buses. Global console safes such as routing and configuration are also found here. For example, if you choose Preamp (HA), then all mic gains would be safe from recall across all input channels.

    "Chan Safe" Screen Scene Safes: Safes all parameters for a specific Channel, AUX / FX Return, Mix Bus, Matrix, DCA Group. This screen also allows you to individually safe any FX slot. One use for this could be the MC's mic at an event featuring multiple acts. You could safe his channel so that as you move through different scenes his mic would be unaffected, even if the scenes you are recalling have different settings for this input channel.

    A Note About Presets vs. Scenes:
    In addition to Scenes, the X32 also features preset libraries. These "presets" are completely independent of scenes and allow you to save your favorite channel strip, routing, and FX settings. These are really handy because they can be loaded at any time and in any scene. This would allow you to save your favorite vocal EQ or routing setups without having to use a scene slot.


    Things to remember when using Scene Management:
    1. If you want to recall all settings, make sure all safe options are UNCHECKED.
    2. The Safes on the Home Screen are set individually, scene by scene. For global safes, use the “Param Safe” and “Chan Safe” pages.

    The X32 as you can see has great flexibility in Scene Management. We hope this Tech Talk will help you better understand and take advantage of these features. As usual, feel free to post your questions here. We will be back next week with another edition of Tech Talk.

      MichaelBerries Will be great improve a "show load" protection by password, from usb



      It is possible to load a particular scene from a Show saved in a usb stick?

      KlausMock A great benefit would be to save/load the global scene safe configuration to/from usb.

      Maybe this can also be part of the show management so that it can be loaded with the show.



      I also like to see a per-scene option to allow me to recall only the main levels and mute states of the channels.

      Think about this scenario. The first scene should load the initial state of the show, which means everything.

      During the show only the main levels and mute states should be loaded to allow me to do some tweaks on the channel processing which should not be overwritten when the next scene is loaded.

      Hi Michael,

      Yes, it is possible to load a particular scene from a "show" saved to USB. When exporting a "show", individual "scene" files are also exported in addition to the "show" file. When viewing the SCENES menu, press UTILITY and you will see the option to import either a Show or Scene.

      It seems to me that there is a small problem with this, if you want to import just one scene from a particular show. The scenes within a show are titled "my show.001" etc., so you don't know what scene it actually is. Is there a way to see the actual name of the scene?

      Hi Mick,

      You are correct that the numbers at the end of the file are the only cue you have when loading individual scenes from an exported show. These numbers will correspond to the scene slot that the scene was originally saved in, (.001 - .100). Once you import a scene back onto an empty scene slot on the X32 (or in XControl), the name of the scene will be displayed in that slot. This at least gives you the chance to see the title before actually accidently pressing GO and loading on the wrong scene.
