Ok, we are trying to record clips of our band live with this anyway we were trying to test it at home running keyboard lines to it (4, but weve had the same problem with 8 or 1 or whatever). Whenever we try to record anything with it, it records for a few seconds (usually 2-12) and then it stops recording. then the bar continues (but it does not resume recording). My brother called presonus and they talked for a long time. They directed him through the set up and made sure everything was done correctly. It still hung up while recording, they could offer no suggestions of what could be wrong and thought it might be the computer. he had a slow hard drive on the computer, so he replaced it with one that had a write speed of 7200, and its still having the same problem. Here are the computers specs: toshiba satellite Windows Vista dual core 2 processor 2 gig ram 7200 write speed. we are using the cubase LE4 that came with the firestudio project. anyone have a similar problem or have any tips or suggestion? Thank you p.s. Im not sure if this is the correct forum, sorry if ive posted it in the wrong place. Just let me know where its supposed to go and Ill delete and re post.
