    Leopard / M-Audio conflict...
    Hi folks. I just bought a Mac Pro tower, which comes with Leopard. I've been using 10.4.11 for a while now, in part because of old problems I had with my M-Audio Firewire 410 driver (M-Audio is realllllly slow to upgrade their drivers). Now, when I open Logic and the Audio-MIDI setup window, the 410 isn't recognized in the output section. When I play my Korg keyboard, the lights on the 410 indicate it's getting signal, but there is no output. Oddly, I am able to play other audio sources (ITunes, Youtube, etc.) no problem. I recall a couple of years ago having to uninstall the M-Audio driver and install an older one in its place, which worked for most things I was doing. I haven't heard back from the M-Audio forum yet, so I thought I'd post here to see if anyone has encountered this, and figured out a workaround... Thanks!

    Hi sammydave What exact version of OS 10.5 are you running? Have you updated the M-Audio 410 driver to the latest available? [url]http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support&tab=driver&serie_ID=2&PID=5f35def5b4107998b11119907053a313&OS=81#tabs[/url] Cheers Rounik

    I'm running 10.5.6, and so far as I can see, I picked the most recent M-Audio driver. I have noticed other discussions online regarding problems with this OS version, which may mean reverting to an old one, or an older OS...

    Hi Sammy, First disconnect your Firewire 410 The driver for your Firewire 410 it is 10.5.6 if it is not update it. After you download it you see an Uninstalled you have to do it first and Restart. Reopen the diskimage you download and now reinstalled. IMPORTANT your Firewire not connect at all. Restart, NOW connect your Firewire 410 and light it up, it will flash for few seconds and come steady, now you supposed to see the icone of it in the dock dont touch anything. Open your system preferences and click on Sound on the last line in this window you supposed to see Firewire 410, check the INPUT and OUTPUT if it is OK , open iTunes and play a song, it is time to click the Firewire icone in the dock,to see how your Firewire mixer perform, if everything it is OK you have sound true your monitors if this work, let me know will go further for Logic app

    Well, so far, so good! This re-install has helped in a big way: my first install only got me to the point where the Audio/MIDI window came up short - no audio output shown for the 410. Now it shows this, and I had to reconfigure in the Output window of the M-Audio utility, but it was quick and painless. And when I opened Logic: perfect. It now works. Thanks a bunch!

    Perhaps I spoke too soon. I had only tested the audio when I last posted, and tried doing some MIDI work tonight(connected via USB), but I'm getting nothing on the MIDI or instrument tracks. I suspect it's something very basic that I'm forgetting, but now I'm tired, and it's just frustrating... In the MIDI Devices section of the Audio MIDI Setup window, I see IAC Driver, Network, Triton Extreme (keyboard) and FireWire 410, all along the top of the main pane. Any thoughts?

    Hi Sammy, sorry for you but we tried to straight it up. First have you check in Logic in Audio Preferences if your Firewire show in this window if yes click on it and in the right low corner click- Apply Changes- Now open a software track, to have sound from your keyboard you have to had an instrument on it and arm the record button on this track, and now it is supposed to play, by the way have you bought the tutorial Logic 101 that will be a great great Help for you i believe.

    Hi guys, hi sammydave, I hope it can help cause it happen to me: I also have a M-Audio 410 and I had Midi problems after connecting my PowerBook Pro (10.5.3). I tried myself many things before writing to M-Audio. After some mail exchange with them, someone called Paul solved my problem. There were a couple of Digidesign midi drivers in my computer and after I threw them away, Logic recognized immediately the midi input from my Kurzweil SP-76. The path was HD(main)>Library>Audio>MIDI drivers By the way those drivers were there since installing Leopard. Also good to check home>Library>Audio>MIDI drivers Hope it helps. If not, get in contact with M-Audio people. If it work for me it should work for you too. Greetings, macnando
