I know you're out there, so let's get down to brass tax. I finally got SX3 (just before 4 was released) after using version one for years and years. The very first thing I went for was the outboard insert/send assign function. I am using an old MOTU 896, and when I go to configure the i/o for an outboard effects loop, the only i/o's that show up are the AES/EBU ones that I do not use with anything... NOT A SINGLE analog channel is available, even when they have been assigned in the input and output tabs. Is the the universe just laughing at me here, or did I actually happen across an incompatibility issue? I have had issues with MOTU before, and (no offense, but) I know what is in store if I try their support line: "did you try plugging in the firewire cable?" or "reinstall the drivers..." BTW I am running an older version of the drivers because my cheap a$$ bought the firewire card with the wrong chipset. I hope this is not the problem, as I don't have the time/resources at the moment to order another one. It barely works, and so far that has been good enough... but this! THIS! Did I miss the memo?
