Windows 7: Motu Ultralite mk3 Hybrib USB. Causing all sorts of issues and BSOD

Yeah, the uninstillation was still running, and it bluescreened.

So I currently have Verifier off, the soundcard uninstalled and not showing up in device manager. There are no Motu .dlls in system32/drivers tho there are in system32/DriverStore.

Are we just testing if anything other than Motu software is playing up?

Thanks again Arc for all your help on this.

Exactly :) As Motu is the prima facie reason.

Without Motu, if the crashes are still there, we will search for the causes. But if there is no further crashes, then, Motu is the culprit here, unfortunately

Been fine so far. Will continue to use it this evening and report in the morning.

Hey Arc, here's an update regarding the issue

It seemed clear that it was the Motu driver and other bloat causing issues so I decided to do a clean install of Windows.

After a suggestion on the Motu forums I finally tracked down the updated BIOS and EC. Clevo make this difficult for fair reason. Anyone interested should check out forums. After double checking to make sure they were the right ones, the update went fine.

I had already made sure I had the latest drivers for my system. Most were installed before the BIOS update, but appear to still be working.

I also noticed Motu put up a firmware update v1.06 two days ago. It's in the downloads section on the Ultralite's page on the Motu site. So that's been installed, plus the latest drivers for the soundcard v.

I also noticed on the Native Instruments forum a post buy one of their gurus ew, about having to install the first Maschine controller driver off the cd in order for new drivers to work. Seems obvious, but maybe that's something i missed on the last OS install. So that was included on the new install of Maschine, which was then updated to v1.8.1, with the separate Maschine controller driver v3.0.1, and the latest NI controller driver. Think it's v.1.5.1.

They are both currently working being plugged in, the Motu powered up, on startup. The audio is also continuing to run when the Maschine software is closed. These are two things that wouldn't work before.

I have noticed that I need to open the Motu Audio Console straight after startup and before running any audio. This isn't too much bother.

So I've just installed Sonar X1 and will continue to get the system back up to speed. Will get back if anything goes wrong, or if it stays stable.

Thanks for all your help so far.

You are welcome, and best of luck.

Frankly speaking, you have done a job well done.

Hi there, me again.

Ok, so just had my first BSOD since the last update. Let me get you up to speed.

So, Maschine and the Motu seem to still be working ok together tho I am having to observe a few rituals in order to get them to play.

On startup of each program I have to open up the driver panel (I'm using ASIO at the moment, more on that in a bit) and wait for a few seconds until the dialog shifts position on the screen a touch. Seemingly 'shaking hands' with the audio driver. I usually have to do this more than once in order to get audio playback. However, it seems that once a link has been established the programs work fine. This is annoying, but I recall having to do the same with NI's Audio Kontrol 1 before they sorted out the drivers.

My main issue now is regarding sample rates and Windows audio. I would prefer to work in 96kHz 24bit, and as a result choose that sample rate in the Motu Audio Console. As I already stated Sonar and Maschine don't seem to mind this too much. However, if I try to play windows audio or a youtube video etc I more often than not get silence. At first my internet browser would try to change the rate to 44.1, so I assumed there must be an option in windows audio to choose 96k. I was right.

After I first encountered Windows audio issues I checked these properties. 88 and 96 weren't checked, 'A ha' I thought, this must be it, simple. No change, indeed, sometimes they decide to un-check themselves. They now seem to remain checked.

After reading yet more posts by people having issues with this card I found out about the advanced tab. This only appears when 'Use Wave RT for Windows audio' is checked in the audio console. This only gives me two options when the Motu is set to 96k, see above. The fact that it's only offering 16bit is the only issue I've found that may be the key, although there seems no way to change this. Coincidentally, if the motu is set to 44.1 it offers me 24 bit 44.1 and 48kHz options. Also, the Advanced tab now remains available whether Wave RT is enabled or not.

Just to clarify, I have tried seemingly all the various setups for this card. Wave RT on/off, using that in conjunction with Sonar's WDM and ASIO drivers, various sample rates the list seems pretty vast.

There really doesn't seem to be a pattern to all this, sometimes audio works in Firefox, more often it doesn't. Sometimes a 96k audio clip will play through Media Player, sometimes without conversion and more often silence and a stuck playback marker. This is massively frustrating because it's making finding a working solution really difficult.

You know you're getting tired of this when a BSOD occurs and you consider it a break through. 'Finally, some info'. The SC was set to 96k, I opened Google Chrome and chose a video on the BBC website. The Motu's LCD flashed over to 44, a quiet, high pitched sequel and the BSOD.


I'm quite certain that it's sample rates causing the grief, but I'm at a loss. Is there another check box lurking somewhere I've missed?

Thanks again.

For the port, first, uninstall and reinstall the USB ports drivers.
  1. Right click on Computer icon > manage. It will open the computer management window.
  2. Click on "Device Manager" in the left pane, it will list all installed devices up.
  3. Expand "USB Serial Bus Controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  4. Click on one item to select, then right click and uninstall.
  5. Do the same for all.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate drivers.
And, Disable USB Selective Suspense too.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

For the devices, first, detach all the USB devices other than the keyboard and mouse.
Then, Update the drivers for them all, including the keyboard and mouse, if any third party drivers are installed for them.

You may post a thread in Music, Pictures & Video - Windows 7 Forums for the other stuff, I am not very familiar with those ones.
