Try toggling that setting to others and then back, maybe it is stuck or something.

Don't overlook the fact that a lot of USB stuff has to be plugged in, recognized by the OS before starting up any programs that would use it...

I have moved the switch around. The device had to be unplugged to install the driver, then plugged in to be recognized. It appears in Control Panel as the default device. As far as the system is concerned it is working properly. I also just tried listening to a demo song in Reason. Same deal.

I have a call in to the sales guy.

By the way, it came bundled with the Roland VSC. I though, "Great, they updated it after all." Uh, negatory. A few seconds in to the install it told me that I needed a processor that was MMX capable. Guess a puny ol' Core i5 2500K 3.3 GHz quad core just ain't good enough.

Bingo.

Ran out and picked up a Presonus Audiobox USB. Had a bad moment when install kept timing out, which seems to be a common problem, but I kept at it and whaddya know? Beeyooteeful noises coming out of blue and silver box.

Meanwhile I got my money through to the Manchester MIDI School (MMS) for their Reason 6 course five minutes before closing on Friday. They won't unlock my account until Monday. But I'm ready.

Glad you got something sorted out. The PreSonus shouldn't have cost you much more than the Edirol unit and it's USB 2.0.

I've had this Presonus AudioBox USB for two whole days. It played audio from various sources successfully during that time using the DX drivers. Then I tried to connect a MIDI keyboard to drive Reason 6, first by USB, then by standard MIDI In. I have successfully used this keyboard before on another PC through two different interfaces.

Today I'm getting crackles for sound and nothing more. I thought it was just the MIDI side gone fnort, but I get the same result with all sources. I've got a message in to Propellerheads but I can already tell this isn't a Reason problem. Is it possible that my PC is toasting these interfaces? Now I've got two boxes to return/exchange, no sound, and I'm starting an online Reason 6 course tomorrow.

Trying to understand and help, confused by your comment: "I tried to connect a MIDI keyboard to drive Reason 6, first by USB, then by standard MIDI In." In looking at the Presonus hookup diagram ( http://www.presonus.com/products/detail.aspx?productid=53 ), it looks like how I hooked mine up...midi out on the keyboard to the midi in of the Prosonus AND USB out from the Prosonus to your computer...you need both to drive your DAW. Perhaps I misunderstood your comment. Are you using an isolated USB port ....one that is not shared with any other USB items (usually this is the top USB port...the one below it usually uses the same port.

Note under specs and downloads the updated drivers for 32 and 64 bit machines and the fact that this unit is USB 1.1.

I can see how that would be confusing--I left something out. The Keystation 49e can be connected and powered by USB, OR powered by an external transformer and connected by standard MIDI. I tried both; neither worked.

New information: I took it to the store, where they tested it and it checked out 100% okay. That's good news and bad news, because I have no explanation for why it's not working here. I just got back and am about to reinstall. Back in a few.

Any updates? Just moved from Kennesaw six months ago, would have been more than happy to come over and take a look.

Richard, One oddity I've found with my rascal us800 is that it likes to be the most recent USB device installed. If I install a device after it there is a cOnflict. Removal and reinstall the drivers seems to work.

I dunno. I haven't looked into it that deeply. Not an issue if I don't bring in any new USB devices. Next time it happens, I will have a deeper look.
