Hi guys, I'm new to recording and I just got my first audio interface, a TASCAM US-1800, and a new, really nice laptop from ADK with plenty of memory, fast processor, all that, so I know my problems aren't a lack of power. On my old, crappy Toshiba laptop running Win XP, the Tascam wouldn't register any channels aside from 1 and 2 in Ableton Live 8. Tech support for Tascam said that I would need to get an ASIO driver (I got ASIO4ALL) to enable the channels manually in the DAW. I did, but channels 3-10 still don't get received though they do work when monitoring the Tascam directly. I hoped that maybe it would work better on my new laptop. Tascam has a "control panel" but it has very few options, none of which are related to enabling individual channels. New laptop got here yesterday so now I'm running Ableton 8 on Win 7 but the issue is the same. I got ASIO4ALL again to see if that would help, but it actually crashed Ableton and my computer several times, and it didn't resolve the issue. I have the latest Tascam US-1800 driver from the website and there is no firmware update on the site for that model. So, my noob questions: Is there an alternative to ASIO4ALL that might improve communication between the Tascam and Ableton? Is there ANY other driver / solution that would fix this? Does the Tascam only work with Cubase or what? Is this a lost cause and I need to just buy a different interface? If so, can I return this piece of crap because I can't use it with my DAW? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
