Windows 7: Presonus Firepod (FP10) won't work completely in w7 pro

01 Dec 2009   #11

win 7 64bit

Thanks almost worked this way for me too!

When I change to 48Khz it does stop bugging me about 'being used by another app' and will play the test tone OK but for some reason I don't hear it. It is possible I have set the levels of the output that is the correct one too low.

BUT at any rate, it won't then work in audio programs which in turn start to complain about device being used by another app - and apparently upon returning to the Firebox control panel, it had reverted to 41.1 by itself and now there was no sound at all anywhere but I guess upon reboot the sounds will return to the way they were.

It's not such a big deal anyway, as long as ASIO works in proper audio programs, I can always use another soundcard and headphones for games and yet another for Skype etc. the only thing that bugs me is I need to open anything I want to listen to in Cubase and can't use mediaplayer, VLC etc. if I want to use speakers, not headphones.

But I guess one day there will be better drivers available. I have two other friends with Firepods as well who bought them as per my recommendation, so I'm feeling a bit responsible for their systems as well & have told them to stick with Xp for a little longer now.

I'll have to try that with my Focusrite Saffire Pro 40. It works great with Sonar but that's all.

Tonight I just stumbled across the solution...thanks to AndyPanda on the PreSonus Forums:

PreSonus Forums - View Single Post - Windows 7 Firepod driver problems

So - Just open up the Firepod / FP10 Control Panel and select a Sample Rate of 48.0 kHz. You don't even have to unplug or restart or anything. Within seconds everything worked for me.

Good luck!
This solved my problem today with windows 10 cubase 6 and presonus firepod
