Help me please! M Audio delta 1010LT problem

    I hope someone out there can help me with this problem. I finished recording a band on my PC yesterday, via my M Audio Delta 1010LT soundcard. As i went to mix the tracks and plugged it all back in at home, the sound of anything coming from my computer sounds muffled and distorted.

    I read in the manual that this could be something to do with the sample codec, but i've made sure these settings have stayed the same since before, so i can't work out whats wrong.

    Anyone have any ideas on how i could solve the problem?

    I would re check all your plug ins and hook ups and what not. If you moved a desktop computer as it reads that you did, it would be easy to burn the schematic on your 1010lt hookup.

    I doubt anything has changed from one room to the next. Also look into the codec sample rate "via" the M-audio Delta control panel. Set it to 44.1 if it is not there.

    Let me know if that works so I can set up a payment plan with ya ;)

    Ive checked the codec, and its set to 44.1 as you say...can't really work it out. Do you think it may be something to do with the circuit? Ive tried unplugging the soundcard and plugging it back in, but to no avail....

    Could you post a sample? Have you checked all the settings in the delta control panel? Check and make sure the output setting is correct. It should be at +4dB. Try reinstalling the drivers. How did it sound before you took everything down?

    I wouldn't move the card around John. Unless you have installed another hardware card, nothing should change inside the box.

    You are using the same software you recorded in to mix in? All connections were done with your equipment off, correct? What about your monitoring...you rechecked and it is wired correctly? Does it sound different using headphones?

    I agree the output setting should be matched to your equipment as noted by hueseph, but it wouldn't do much more then make the audio signal more hot or less hot.

    As a simple test, when you play a song from a CD does it still not perform correctly?

    A CD or regular wav or mp3 doesnt play correctly either. Monitors etc all running same as normal, which leads me to believe it must be a problem with the card...need to track down the software to reinstall, cant find the box anywhere!!

    i'll post a sample as soon as i can.

    If you go to the link I gave you that should give you the drivers to install the card. If that doesn't work, your card is hooped. Sorry to say.

    I have old drivers for this card if needed. If you go to the link hueseph gave a few posts above and get the updated driver/ control panel software, on my system, it un loaded the older drivers/control panel anyway before it installed new software.

    Hopefully it will be as simple as that.

    We've had problems with our DELTA 1010 rack, where it simply wouldn't turn on. This happened twice so far, overnight, with no mucking about.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's an internal connection problem. (bad connections, solders, whatnot). After getting it replaced, it was hell on earth reinstalling the drivers and software (after reformatting the PC) because the sample rate would have a mind of its own. (improper master sample rate would cause a highly distorted sound, depending on how far away it was from the original sample rate)
