[ddots-l] Re: What's this called, and where do I find it?

Hi Kylee,

It depends on whether or not your on-board sound card has just been disabled
within your pc's control panel or from the bios.
If it has been disabled from within control panel all you have to do is
go to control panel, system, then go to the hardware tab and click on device
manager.  Have a look around using your arrow keys and you'll see your sound
card there.  Just hit the enable button.  If it has been disabled at the
bios then you will need sighted assistance to enable it again.

Hope this helps.
Btw, the creative extigy is a reasonably good card but if you can enable
your on-board sound card then you wont need it.  Is that the card with the
front loading break out box?  I'm not sure it will cut the mustard with
Sonar.  I seem to remember asking a similar question a few years ago, hence
the reason why I got an M-audio 44-10.

I have a Mackie 1202 which should still be available but there are hundreds of mixers on the market which all do the same job, it just depends on how much cash you have to spend, smile.

Take care.

Hi, Jim, John and Phil

Thanks for your responses.

Yes, I'm using Eloquence on my MAudio, as the Sound card on my PC's mother
board was disabled.  Not sure how to get that rectified or whether I
should
just get a cheap SB or something for Jaws.

But the mixer idea for listening to both sound cards from one source as
expounded in the CT documentation sounds like a great idea.  Now to find
one
with enough outs and ins.

BTW, work has given me a Creative Labs Extigy.  Will that do?  I don't
suppose I'll be recording much at work, (we work in an open plan
environment
and only do post production in the studio).  But I have Sonar for its
multi-tracking so that I can do more of that side of things myself, being
as
Sadie is only useable by Jaws in a hack sort of way.

Of course, it would be great to have a whole setup dedicated to audio, and
that may eventually be possible here at home, but not at all where I'm
working. IT was hard enough to get the basics, even if much of the
peripheral software was bought by the government.

Just some thoughts on which I'd appreciate any comment.

Cheers

Kylee

Hi Kylee,

I seem to remember that all that my brother did was to adjust recording
and
playback levels and that was that. For your home system, I presume that
you
will be using a software synthesiser like eloquence?  I have an external
synth so I can get by with using only one sound card, however, I know
that
you can use two sound cards, one for jaws output and the other for Sonar
and
ct.  If you have a reasonbly modern pc you'll have an on-board sound card
which should be perfectly adequit for eloquence.
Before you buy an M-audio card, check out some others.  I've been told
that
the Edirol FA 101 fw is accessible for jaws users but, I had already
purchased my M-audio and really couldn't justify a second expense.

I have a reasonably good little mixing desk made by Mackie, the 1202, I
forget exactly how much it cost, round about 200 pounds stirling.  It
uses
pots instead of faders, which I prefer.

Hope some of this helps
