I have the M-Audio Profire audio interface and it was working fine in Windows 7 until Microsoft revised their spec for their drivers in I think Additional information on my system and attempts at getting it to work with JACK – including different JACK settings and trying both “firewire” driver and “freebob” driver – can be found in the following discussion thread over at Ubuntu Forums: If I want audio to work through these mixers. I regularly try to take a look at the spam-queue but my time is limited;-. And in the past when I have used SoftSynts it was only one or two instances for strings or pads. If I re-install the drivers before turning the mixers on and part of installing the drivers is turning on the mixers to let Windows “recognize” them , it then works.

Apparently any spike in DPC latency then kills the audio again.

Also Have you tried daisy chaining the boards instead of plugging each one directly into it’s own port? In addition to FireWire card, would I need a separate sound card to make things work?

Let me know if I can help in any way. I’ve heard the manual often has the answer you’re looking for. I regularly try to take a look at the spam-queue but my time is limited. In any case, I noticed that in JACK the “freebob” driver recognizes the mixer while the “firewire” driver does not recognize it. One difference that I see is the 16 sends and 16 firswire so you can play back to mixer.

Onyx Driver Compatibility | Mackie

I really need this deck to work on the new editor. In any case, there should be some details in the original post that has the Ubuntu Forums link pertaining to this.

I know this is sort of an old post, but thought I would share my experience and sympathy with all the Windows zv/c users having problems with firewire devices. I have an onyx running fireiwre much problem free with Windows 7. Between Microsoft and Mackie, that’s really shoddy programming. I’m strictly an audio guy. If I re-install the drivers before turning the mixers on and part of installing the drivers is turning on the mixers to let Windows “recognize” themit then works.

In reply to gundalf9’s post on September 11, Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue firewirw scammers attempt to trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services. So where’s the problem Are the “i”-based Mackies supported in any way yet? KellyNM Replied on November 29, Premiere has listing for the Sony DSR but is unable to talk to my deck.


A VT based host controller should work, but there are no guarantees. I provided a link to a discussion thread with details on my computer set-up and attempts at getting things working.

Onyx-i Series

I uninstalled and re-installed, no dice. In the mean time, I hope my previous comment in here is posted, it has more details pertinent to this subject. I did a System Restore, no dice. In reply to JohnLauterjung’s post on November 20, You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread.

They’re probably sick of hearing about it although I’d say “tough! I had this problem. It is almost 3 years since the first question was asked, and there is no clear responce from them.

The only solution I have found that actually works is to disable my wireless adapter by right clicking the wireless icon and selecting “Open Network and Sharing Center”.

Additionally, sometimes, upon starting the computer, I have to unplug and replug the FireWire cable before the Onyx driver will load.
