Relevant components to this issue:


Windoze 7 - fully updated

E-Mu 0404 PCI sound card (2 mono 1/4" ins [R/L], 2 mono 1/4" outs [R/L])
-both the stable release and beta drivers have been tried

E-Mu Patchmix DSP (mixer software)

Shure KSM27 (older version of the SM27) phantom pwr'd XLR microphone

Phantom power box

XLR-1/4" mono out


Sooooo as you can imagine the mic is plugged into the sound cards Left input.

Through the Patchmix DPS software I can listen to the microphone through my speakers and it sounds perfect!

Through Windoze I can sometimes get the recording device set on my E-mu to throughput noise and it is typically a little garbled. If its not clicking (as if the frequencies on the codecs are off) as soon as it starts working, it starts distorting after some time passes by.

The way I can get Windoze to start taking the input is by switching defaults between my E-mu and my regular line-in. I disable and reenable it and switch around which is default for which and eventually it comes through...

So what I'd love to be able to do is download an application that will create another input and use an ASIO channel from my card or something to get it actually working right!

I'd figure it is a hardware problem if the mic / input didn't work in my Patchmix or ASIO DAWs, but it does, and the test tones I can create within that input channel using hte Patchmix mixer software come out garbled through Windows but not through ASIO / outputs.
