Hey wegguy,

thanks for the tip and now i realize why a lot of people missed out and the explaination of the the recording not working.

As you have mentioned the you use the ADAT function via lightpipe.

Which you have confirmed works.

I am using analog 1/4 plugs from my DJ mixer output to 1/4" input of my tango24.

SUPPORT FOR FRONTIER DESIGN PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SO YOU MAY UNDERSTAND THE BUG REPORT.......

App: Soundforge 10.0c
OS: Windows 7 (X64) Ultimate
Soundcard: Dakota with 2 x Tango24

In any audio application audio device setting i get 4 selections
1) Microsoft Sound Mapper

2) Windows Classic Wave Driver (WDM I presume)

3) Asio Dakota (16)

4) Asio Dakota (24)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

When Using the following here are the results

1) Microsoft Sound Mapper [not applicable]

2) Windows Classic Wave Driver (WDM I presume) [AUDIO PLAYBACK - WORKS ----- AUDIO RECORDING - FAILS]

3) Asio Dakota (16) [AUDIO PLAYBACK - WORKS ----- AUDIO RECORDING - WORKS]

4) Asio Dakota (24) [AUDIO PLAYBACK - FAILS ----- AUDIO RECORDING - FAILS]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems like most users here on the board uses ADAT mode  which is Asio Dakota (16) or (32) ---------- which is why the complaints are a bit minimal when it comes to recording.

I have used Windows Classic Wave Driver (WDM I presume) mode from the first day i bought my Dakota which has made my setup easier.

100% Windows Classic Wave Driver (WDM I presume) fails on recording using Windows 7 (x64) drivers and any x64 OS.

Confirmed, your Dakota control panel works on boot up and no longer crashes.

hey wegguy,

How did you get your 16-bit audio to work?  Is it coming from an analog source?

Even with the beta drivers, i cannot get any of my analog recordings to work.

When i record in window 7 (x64) i get this weird digital noise of the track i am recording.

However, in windows 7 (x86) it works no problem.

Am i missing something hear?

i even tried different systesm (dell precision 690, 490, dell dimension e520, white box with MSI motherboard, ASUS motherboard, intel processors, AMD processors) it all gives me the same results.

I hate to revert back to Windows 7 (x86) because my Adobe Premiere only works on x64 and i use the dakota to record.  I am using Soundforge 10 to record my analog (vinyl) from my pioneer djm-500 mixing board. 

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated to get at least my 16-bit analog recording to work in windows 7 x64

Hi MJN,

The blue screen is on both windows 7 x64 and x86 (32 bit).

You have to disable the dakota control panel on loadup so that it does not load into the system tray. 

But you can access it afterwards in control panel by changing the view to category view (on the right side of the screen).

Otherwise on Win7 32-bit everything else seems to work including recording directly to your line-in on your tango24 via dakota card (line-in recording will not work for win7 64-bit)

Hope this helps.

Hi

Is there any word on the Windows 7 x64 drivers, or even beta drivers.

I can even leave a computer for you guys to remote (via Logmein) into for testing.  The remote session will include sound and you can ftp the audio files to yourself.

let me know.

Thx

Matt.

Hey CS,

My thought were exactly the same.

If it works on Windows 7 32-bit, then it should work on windows 7 64-bit!

And again, everything so far works accept for recording from analog source through the tango24 1/4" inputs using the dakota card.

Also to add into the mix, i have not gotten any one to verfiy the analog recording through their tango24  1/4" inputs using the dakota to work using any 64-bit windows version.

I know the other guy mosspa mentioned ADAT and do audio transfers but that's not recording through the analog 1/4" on the tango24.

I know this is probably a driver issue because again it works fine in Windows 7 32-bit.

thx

matt

hey cs,

sorry for the delay... been too busy...

here is something i wrote to mosspa, maybe this will shed some light.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Mosspa,

Thanks for the response.

I had to read your post a few times over and tried to draw a diagram to understand your setup.

I appreciate the efforts on the feedback.

Correct me if i am wrong, it sounds like you are moving audio around between systems via ADAT for multitracking which i am not familiar with.

But if i understand this correctly, moving audio via ADAT is not the same is recording analog audio direclty to (LINE IN 1 and 2) on the tango24/dakota.  If you are moving audio around via ADAT then you are really just using the lightpipe to move the data around and not doing direct analog recording from an analog source such as a turntable via DJ mixing board.  Also bouncing audio from your soundboard such as Yamaha o1v to your ADAT recording using dakota as a smtpe sync is also not the same as direct audio recording.

i only use one computer system to produce house music.

- dakota connected to 2 x tango24 --> output channel B7 & B8 --> goes to my yamaha o1v - 1/4" analog channel 15/16 ----> yamaha o1v monitor output ---> sony amp via yamaha NS10 near field monitors

- technics SL-1200 mkII ---> connect to Pioneer DJM-500 (4 channel DJ mixer) output ----> tango24 (input A1 & A2)

- the yamaha o1v is only used to listen thru my NS10
- i use soundforge to record audio samples from vinyl
- i use sony acid 7 pro to do all the production/arrangement internal will no out-board gear or mixdown (with some acceptions to my filter factory)

therefore all the audio is done internally. even the mdi is dumped down to audio format. 

again everything seems to work accept for recording any analog recodings thru the tango24.

gotta run, but will comeback to finish off...

hey guys,

just to add to the post that i would also pay to have proper windows 7 64-bit drivers to work.

please!!!

(currently i have to dual boot between windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit just to record analog audio for my dakota/tango24)

I tried looking for other gear including m-audio but was still disappointed with it's functions.

Please support windows 7 drivers 64-bit.  (i'll pay for support subscriptions yearly)

Hi There,

i saw your post about mixcraft 5 and running dakota on windows 7 64-bit.

just curious, were you are to record straight audio tracks through the dakota or are you using the mixcraft 5 for midi?

i have never been able to get any analog audio to record properly through dakota and tango24 with any windows 64-bit OS.

So i would be very curious if you did record audio in windows 7 64-bit, what is your setup?

Keep in mind i have no issues at all with Windows 7 32-bit in both midi and recording straight audio and would pay to get drivers made to work for windows 7 64-bit

Hi Everyone,

I have a Dakota since 1999 and love it.

Recently i am been needing to Windows 7 64 bit because of adobe premiere plus increase of ram (16GB).

The problem i am running into from day one with dakota 64-bit driver is that it installs fine, playback fine, but when i comes down to recording, it seems like it is recording the audio source fine, but when i play it back all i get is digial sound, like time code sounds or when a cd is badly scratched and all you hear is digital noise.

I tried installing x64 bit on mulitple OS
- windows XP pro 64-bit
- Windows Vista 64-bit
- Windows 7 64-bit

I also tried multiple machines-
- dell precision 490
- dell dimension e520
- white box with Asus motherboard
- HP DC5800
- HP DC7100CMT
- IBM ThinkCentre 8810

current setup:

Dell precision 490
- 16GB ram
- dual physical cpu xeon 5150 (2.66Ghz) dual core
- dakota sound card
- 2 tango24
- 640GB hard-drive - (raid 1)

clock status is set to 44.1, using the optical setting on both tango24

now when it comes down to windows 7 32-bit not problem and generally i would not complain.

but again recently i need to do a video which means i needed to install adobe premiere cs5.  unfortunately it will only install on 64-bit OS.

furthermore microsoft has announced that windows 7 is the LAST 32-BIT OS they will release.  In 2 years windows 8 will come out, only in 64-bit OS.

I would hope that someone out there has a solution for this or support will have a new driver to fix this issue.

Also i would hope that someone out there has their dakota working properly in 64-bit OS including recording audio from analog source and playing it back successfully.  If you do please post your specs to the specific make and model of the motherboard.

According the support they said it works and i have yet to receive their specs that they tested on.

Please help!!!

Sorry i haven't been on here for awhile.

I do have a problem with my Dakota working with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Edition.

Playback works no problem.

However, when i record, it shows it is recording but what i playback from the recordings ends up sounding like digital timecode signals

When i revert back to Windows 7 32-bit ultimate and use 32-bit drivers, it works fine.

This problems occurs on all 64 bit platforms (Winxp, Vista, Win7)

The workstation is a dell precision 490 with dakota card and 2 tango 24 using 44.1Khz for syncing.

Aside from doing Audio production, i am now needing to do video and because Adobe Premiere CS5 will only work with 64-bit Windows OS, i cannot use it with my Dakota now.

I am sure this is a simple fix and i have requesting this to support since WinXP 64-bit.

I have tried installation on whiteboxes, other dell desktops, HP, and IBM with the same results.

I am asking Frontier Design to please make a final fix for the Dakota 64 bit drivers.

As you also know, windows 7 is the last OS that will be 32-bit.

Therefore in 2 years when windows 8 comes out, it will only be 64-bit.

Please do not make me change to M-Audio, i have been proud since 1999 to have Dakota and told everyone what great technology this is for lasting for over a decade and a half.

I invite others with the same problem to please ask support to fix this issue as well.

PROBLEM SOLVED for WINDOWS 7 64-BIT

Thanks to Williaml99

Yes his method works.

I did the installation twice on 2 fresh workstations and they work perfectly.

You need to open you command windows (in accessories) and type: msconfig

On the startup tab (along the top) - remove the check mark for DakotaTray.exe

You will prompt to reboot, just reboot and everything should work perfectly.

To access your Dakota Tray goto control panel, switch view from category to large icon (drop down option on right side of window)

and you will see your Dakota Tray

Sorry, i forgot to mention the most important part of the whole windows 7 x64 RTM with dakota x64 drivers.

- the drivers actually work in windows 7 x64 and performing very fast no problems, sounds great and clear as always from dakota sound card

- only problem is with the blue screen when the computer goes to restart or shutdown

- reason why this is important to fix is because everytime it blue screens on shutdown/restart is that i risk damaging the hard-drive becasue the hard-drive head will stop in the middle of the disk sector as oppose to properly parking on a shutdown which will damage the physical drive platter.

Also additional information

I also tried with 4GB of ram and 2 GB of ram just in case the ram size is not supported by the dakota (which i doubt is the problem).

Still same results.

Any help is appreciated.

thx

matt.

Hi There,

i have issues with x64 drivers for dakota.

Although it was originally been approved for xp x64 and vista x64, i know most vista drivers work with windows 7 x64.

Also, i could never get the vista x64 driver to work, i always get digital noise (like you would hear in the movie transformers from soundwave :) instead of actual audio sounds from music, etc.

Now with windows 7 x64 (which i was hoping would fix this issue) after the second reboot and from the point on, i get a blue screen at the end of the shutdown.

The message i get:

system_service_exception

no idea how to fix this.

I tried compatibility mode for vista sp2 and "run as administrator" which failed.

Also, for those who don't understand the reasons for x64, you need x64 OS to access ram higher then 3.5GB (limited to 32-bit) - and even if you add the /pae switch (physical address extension) it is still not the same process as running x64 OS when dealing with audio and video.

In my case, i have 8GB of ram running.

Any solution is creately appreciated.

Thx

Matt.
