Any Fireface 800 users?

    I just sold off the old gear I knew so well. So now I'm committed to using the new fireface 800 with my Nuendo setup. In my previous setup with the Yamaha dsp2416 cards the hardware mixer and routing for the card could be accessed directly through Nuendo/Cubase. Changes could be made on the fly.
    With the RME the software routing matrix and mixer are accessed outside the recording and there use trigged the recording to halt.
    My Mackie controller is supposed to control both, but I've yet to figure how to switch between them.

    Any Ideas!

    I tried for using the WDM drivers and it still didn't work.It seems as if Vista is recognizing it and assumes it is working, It's just not putting out any sound.

    Sorry I haven't a clue what your talking about. I have sound and am not using vista.
    My issues with the Fireface software is that using it stops Nuendo, and using the Mackie to control it seems impossibly random.

    I can't help but think there is a simple solution. There is an option in Nuendo to "release ASIO in background". Have you enabled that feature?

    Thanks I'll try that. I generally have it engaged so I can switch to Wavelab without having to close Nuendo.

    I am not sure if I can help. But I had 2 firefaces hooked up Nuendo 3. I used the ASIO drivers for the firefaces, and I was able see them in Nuendo. I had to do a sound card set up. before Nuendo could see the fireface though. Under options I think. But I never did get my mackie control to work right. I thought it was issues with Nuendo though. Since I have sold the firefaces.

    Do you still have the mackie controller setup with Nuendo?
    What issues do you have with it? I have this problem of faders deciding there own level even though I haven't programed them and haven't got the read light on. I'll pull down a fader and it will resist then pop back up after I let go. How weird is that?

    Thats was the exact problemI had too!

    I got rid of the mackie controller because of it. I though it was Nuendo.
