UX2 Windows 7 Problem - Failed to Open Device
by ATSegan on 2011-05-27 13:41:35


I've been having a reoccurring issue (not all the time though) where my UX2 device is not being recognized by Ableton Live Lite (currently running v 8.2.2). I was previuosly using version 7.0.10, but recently upgraded to 8.2.2 because the issue also happened with version 7.0.10. Additionally, I have updated all of my drivers using Line 6 Monkey 1.40 and installed PodFarm v 1.12. It seems as if the UX2 box is receiving signals from my mic as the front lights up and moves when I speak into the mic. I also see the green lights on the PodFarm application move as well. It's just the Ableton program that is having a problem with recognition. I get the following message:

Failed to open the audio device.

It sounds similar to the thread I found on the X3 here, but I am hoping I do not have to replace the box.

But I'm not sure whether this is a Line 6 software/hardware issue or an Ableton issue. Can someone help shed some light on this subject?
