    Hello, I recently purchased the Alesis Multimix 16 Firewire, and I keep getting this message from Sonar anytime I boot it up.

    Audio Driver Error

    The following drivers either don't support the audio format or is used by another program.

    Please choose whether to disable or use anyway.

    *And it gives me this long list of things*

    Mulitmix Audio Out
    Mulitmix Channles in 1/2
    Mulitmix Channles in 3/4
    Mulitmix Channles in 5/6
    Mulitmix Channles in 7/8
    Mulitmix Channles in 9/10
    Mulitmix Channles in 11/12
    Mulitmix Channles in 13/14
    Mulitmix Channles in 15/16
    Multimix Main In

    Am I not connecting something correctly?

    I’m running the firewire cord from the mixer to the computer, and the speakers to the headphone jack. Is there something I’m missing?

    I don't own a Alesis Multimix but I do use Sonar. To me this sounds like you have a driver problem.

    Make sure the sample rate is set the same in Sonar and on the Alesis. Just a long shot?

    And I wouldn't be plug'in your speakers into the headphone output . Use the main out on the Alesis, I'm sure there is a stereo output on your firewire cable going back to the Multimix.
