M-Audio FW 410 vs. OS X vs. Logic Pro...
I have an IMac G5, 1.6 GHz (pre-Intel), 2 GB RAM, OS 10.4.11 (until today). Logic Pro 8.0.1. M-Audio FireWire 410, used for audio from my Korg Triton keyboard (MIDI to IMac via USB).
This problem started Monday past, possibly during a storm, when power flickered briefly, though M-Audio tech support doesn't see any connection...
Something in my little studio changed. The Korg is sending audio to the 410, as the LEDs light up correctly (plus I tested the Korg outputs), but there is no output happening from the 410. Nothing from
headphones or RCAs on back. However, if I play any audio from the IMac (as opposed to any audio connected directly to the 410), both headphone and RCAs work perfectly.
M-Audio tech said it must be from a software update, either Logic or OS X. This seems odd, as I haven't noticed either in about two weeks (Software Update is set to ask before doing automatic updates). But, figuring most people in tech support probably know lots more than me, I took his advice of downgrading from OS 10.4.11 to 10.4.10, which is the last version officially supported on the M-Audio Driver update site (He claims the new versions should be out within a couple of weeks, but wasn't certain, and I can't sit still that long).
Anyhow, the OS change didn't seem to work. Same results. I feel very apprehensive about downgrading Logic, as it took so long to load in the first place.
I could wait, hoping for the new drivers, but then I'd be quite limited in the sounds I'd have access to, and the Korg would only be acting as a MIDI controller.
I would appreciate any thoughts on this.
