Configuring Propellerhead Record for use with M-Audio devices
Text size [-] [+]

This guide will provide a quick walkthrough on how to setup your M-Audio audio sound card with Propellerhead's Record software.

Before proceeding, you must install the latest drivers for your device.

1. Launch Record

2. Select Preferences from the Edit menu (PC) or the Record menu (Mac)

3. Select the Audio Page

4. Mac users click the dropdown menu for the Audio Card  and select your M-Audio device.  PC users click the dropdown menu for the Audio Card Driver  and select the M-Audio ASIO driver for your device:  

Note: Live may identify your M-Audio device by Series (USB, FW/FireWire, Delta), and not by name.

5. Close the Preferences window.

Record is now configured to record and playback using your M-Audio sound card.  Connect your speakers or headphones to your M-Audio sound card.  You cannot use your computer speakers, or built-in sound card for output.

When recording from a mono sound source such as a single microphone or guitar, it is necessary to select the appropriate mono input for record recording.  Click the Audio Input section to select the corresponding mono input.

If your audio interface does not feature hardware direct monitoring, (Audiophile USB, JamLab, Transit), or if you wish to monitor with software effects, you can use input monitoring through Record, which is enabled by default (see the small green button on the sequencer track above).  If your device features hardware direct monitoring and you use input monitoring in Record, you will need to disable the hardware direct monitoring of your M-Audio device to avoid doubling your monitored signal.  Please refer to the user guide for your M-Audio device for how to enable/disable hardware direct monitoring.  You can disable software monitoring through Record by toggling the software monitoring button on your audio track (see the small green button on the sequencer track above).
