New DAW Motherboard required

  1. howdy folks

    I came across this site when I was researching my DAW, now I have compiled and built the following:

    ASUS a7n8x-e Deluxe Motherboard
    AMD XP 2500+ Retail
    2x Corsair 512mb 3200XL DDRam
    10gig System Disk
    2x 200gb Seagate SATA (Striped)
    Matrox G550
    M-Audio Audiophile 2496
    Antec Sonata Case

    Think that about wraps it up... Been using it for a while now without any trouble, but I purchased a USB Midi Controller and it wouldnt work. I tested it on another computer I have here (AMD/ASUS a7v333) and it worked.

    Through a bit more research and talking with ASUS + M-Audio there is an inconsistancy in the USB controller (MCP-T) on the Motherboard, which cannot be fixed.

    So now I need a new motherboard, I would like to only purchase the motherboard, but if i need to switch to an Intel setup I will..

    Anyone got any ideas on what I should get?

    does your m-audio card have a midi input? I stopped using USB midi after having problems with notes sticking.
  3. yeah the audiophile 2496 does have a midi input,
    but i wanna keep that open to clock my mpc2000

    have you tried a powered usb hub.
    i have used that motherboard (built systems)at least 80- 100 times for Pro Audio

    AMD mobos seem to have a lot of issues with USB that get fixed with a powered hub.
