The Magix Low Latency driver is an ASIO driver. Alternatively there is ASIO4All on which the Magix driver is based. However I don't understand that you say you select it and then say there isn't one installed.

The ASIO drivers are already there in the Program settings, for Music Maker 2021 mine are setup as shown below for live recording

I mean it's in the settings, but not in the Device Manager.

I think something else must have been causing it problems. i just did a factory reset and I can here sound now with the ASIO driver selected.
I still can't record and voice though, the input device is empty but I can record voice using the standard Windows Recorder.

Graham-Hawker wrote on 9/13/2020, 6:24 AM

the input device is empty

That's the input device for Midi, such as a midi keyboard, not for audio.

@DAVID-BANKS

As @Graham-Hawker says, that is the dropdown for MIDI input.

On the left hand side of the screen shown in your latest post, under "AUDIO driver>Magix Low Latency ..." what is shown if you click on the "Advanced" button?

Here's the advanced settings.

Here's the lights on the recording track:

I can record using Windows Recorder so the mic is working.

Hi

What are you trying record from - a microphone plugged into the Realtek sound card, the Oculus VR headset or other device?

I don't like the look of the "Always resample 44.1khz <> 48khz" boxes being ticked.

DAVID-BANKS wrote on 9/13/2020, 2:08 PM

@johnebaker It's a simple gaming headset. This one to be exact:

It's plugged into the 3.5mm jack on the computer.

DAVID-BANKS wrote on 9/13/2020, 2:10 PM

@Graham-Hawker I haven't explicitly ticked those, they're the factory settings.

Graham-Hawker wrote on 9/13/2020, 2:26 PM

Have you tried unticking them? My guess is Magix by default needs 44.1khz audio. After all that's what the loops are.

Also look at the Audio Recording settings (Shift +R). This is usually set as CD quality 44.1khz. It is possible to change it 48khz here but I don't see the point.

DAVID-BANKS wrote on 9/13/2020, 2:54 PM

@Graham-Hawker Aye, I've tried various combinations of enabling and disabling bits in those advanced settings too. The results have ranged from no effect at all to the program actually crashing.

Hi

Check in the Windows Settings that Music Maker has access to the microphone

and the microphone is set as the Windows default recording device when plugged in. If necessary start with the same Advanced settings I posted earlier.

It seems that by dicking about with those settings I'm actually disabling the microphone across the system.

It looks good to me.

So, just out of curiosity, with the Headphones you gave the link to, did you use the adapter for the PC that splits the signal into "Two", so you can plug the end with the "Green" colored tip into the "Line Out" on your motherboard, and the "Pink" colored tip into the "Microphone" port? If you are trying to use the "Single" line, it won't work, as that is meant for connecting into an XBox or Playstation console.

Check that, and then follow up with what all these Gentlemen have provided from their experience. I am primarily using VEGAS Pro or Movie Studio, but also have Acid Music Studio and Music Maker, so do follow the threads.

Again, start with the Basics for trouble-shooting, and go from there.

@mmcswnavy24 The computer has a combined ear/mic 3.5mm jack. Before I installed Music Maker I'd never had any problem with it at all.

Hi

. . . . The computer has a combined ear/mic 3.5mm jack . . . .

Is this a laptop?

Did you start from the settings I posted, turning off all the other devices in the Advanced dialog?

Aye, it's a laptop.

I've tried to copy your settings, I have slightly different options though.

However I didn't know you had to turn recording mode off in order to hear the playback. It is picking up audio now, albeit suspiciously quiet.

Hi

That is good - you may need to increase the Microphone boost setting in the Windows 10 Sound Control panel, Recording tab, Microphone properties, Levels tab - I have to have mine set to +30dB to get a good recording.

Did you check the levels in Music Maker when you selected the recording device?

. . . . I didn't know you had to turn recording mode off in order to hear the playback . . . .

Apologies - should have mentioned that before, however it initially appeared as your were not getting anywhere with actually recording.

Odd. Mine is set to that as well and it's loud and clear on all the other applications, only quiet on Music Maker.
