Adobe Audition and Tascam US-1641 problem

Anyone know why Adobe Audition will not allow me to select inputs 3-16 on my Tascam US-1641. I have set up the new Tascam unit but when I try to view my input selection in Audition, it only shows the Tascam unit as a whole. I can record using channels 1 and 2, and it will play back on the monitor outputs, but nothing else.

I am not a fan of CuBase, but since it came with the Tascam unit, I installed it on my computer as well thinking that Audition was the problem. CuBase showed channels 3-16 as "inactive" whatever that means.

My PC meets or exceeds the specs required by Tascam for this unit.

I fired off an e-mail to the support center of Tascam but have not got a reply. I wanted to see of anyone else has had this problem and hopefully get some advise.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Okay, I got an answer from Tascam. Adobe Audition 1.5 does not support the Tascam US-1641 interface. It has something to do with then internal clock in the Tascam unit. There is not a way (at least not one they or I know of) to change the clock Audition 1.5 uses to the internal clock in the Tascam unit.

I downloaded a trial version of Audition 3.0 and selected the internal clock of the Tascam unit and I was off and running.

I have done some recording on the unit but didn't have enough to fill the entire unit at once. I wen ahead and tried 10 of the 14 inputs at once and no problem there. I am looking forward to loading it with all the 14 analog inputs to see how it will handle it.

So far I am pleased, but I must confess. When I purchased this interface, I did install a seperate USB 2.0 PCI card. I haven't tried this in the same USB ports as the printer, mouse, and scanner. The USB 2.0 PCI card cost $25. If this keeps me from having data errors, it is worth it.

I am happy to provide any feedback to anyone wishing or thinking about buying one of these. Hueseph, I do have a snip .mp3 from a session that I am currently working on, all recorded with this unit. Send me a message with your e-mail and I will attempt to send it to you.
