  1. Drivers ceased to function after a few hours of playback using Firefox Flash plugin and Media Player Classic. All subsequent attempts to playback caused the host application to freeze, forcing the use of Task Manager to end task. Rebooting was the only solution. I shall revert back to drivers if it occurs again.
  2. Drivers: All sample/bit rates in Control Panel applet are now working for default playback and recording settings. No other issues to report.
  3. Here's some more straw-clutching things for desperadoes to try: 1) Only have the UX2 connected to a USB 2 port. USB 3 ports will typically be coloured blue. 2) Check your motherboard manufacturers website for updated Windows 10 drivers for chipsets and USB. If you don't know your motherboard make/model/chipset then you can use CPU-Z to get this information. 3) If your motherboard has no updated drivers, and you have an Intel chipset, then try the Intel Chipset Update Utility (ignore the fact that it does not show support for Windows 10 yet). You can also try the Intel Driver Update Utility. 4) If your motherboard has no updated drivers, and you have an AMD chipset, then try the latest AMD chipset drivers. 5) Open Device Manager, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers and determine which USB Root Hub your UX2 is connected to and uninstall the hub. Reboot and the hub will be detected and drivers will be reinstalled. 6) For good measure you can also make sure power management is turned off on that hub.
  4. For those who don't know the thread: OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit Device: Pod Studio UX2 Drivers: On my system the UX2 works for both recording and playback in all apps. No unplugging, rebooting or other messing around. Apps that don't let you change sample rate use the default settings made in the Control Panel applet: 48000Hz, 16 bit. I have no other Line 6 software installed besides the drivers, which were downloaded from here. The advanced tab becomes unavailable if the Line 6 driver is active. Simply opening the Control Panel Recording applet activates the Line 6 Driver: If I disable the UX2 for recording, wait a few seconds, then enable it and open properties before the driver has activated I can access the advanced tab: The same is true for playback, if the UX2 is not actively in use the driver is inactive and the advanced tab can be accessed: If the UX2 is actively playing back sound the driver is active and the advanced tab can't be accessed:
  5. Wow, stellar progress, they've moved on to repeating what I've been saying for weeks! Yes, I posted in this thread, a while ago, that I have WASAPI (Exclusive Mode) drivers working in Reaper (latest version).
  6. ^^^ LOL! Even though I'm one of the few (only one?) who has the UX2 continuously 'working' without problems (albeit restricted to 48KHz\16bit for apps that don't have any option to change it), this is now getting to the point of ridiculousness. It's been over 4 weeks since the Windows release build was made available. Line 6 need to get their lazy backsides into gear and put out some working WDM drivers. They are still listing the broken drivers from 2013 as Windows 10 drivers, unbelievable!
  7. For reference, these are the drivers I'm using:
  8. No worries. That was a cumulative update. SR1 is supposed to have major fixes for all the upgraders with problems plus some new features.
  9. For the record, I'm running the latest Audacity, 2.1.1, without issues. MS is rolling out a major update, going by the name of Service Release 1, starting tomorrow. Let's hope this will sort out some of you out. Oh, and my thought for the day is this: Right click on the Start button Select Command Prompt (Admin) Type: sfc /scannow Hit ENTER It will probably take a while to run. What it does is repairs/replaces corrupted system files and configurations. It usually clears up a ton of problems with Windows 10 upgrades and installs.
  10. OK, so I've hacked the crap out of the streamlined Win 10 box that I've been testing the UX2 on. It would be impractical to go through all the Microsoft and Windows things I've disabled, removed, configured, etc. If none of the previous things I have posted have worked for you then you may be heading into 'clutching at straws' territory. So, it probably won't hurt if I just start posting the tweaks on my box that might have some relevance, as they occur to me. For the record, I'm running a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit, drivers and Pod Studio UX2. Here's two, disable app access to mic and disable background apps.
  11. It appears to have been removed. Shady behaviour from Line 6 or what?
  12. So, most of you lads are still having trouble getting the mic/input working with basic Windows apps like Skype, Mumble, TeamSpeak, Audacity, etc. Yet, I've got it working on mine. Audacity works with the MME, DirectX and WASAPI drivers. The only other significant configuration differences I can think of is that I have all my USB ports 'selective suspend' and 'allow Windows to power down' settings disabled in Device Manager and Power Options. But, perhaps the biggest difference is the following. Have you noticed that when booting up after shutting down Windows 10 it's significantly faster than restarting? This is because when starting from the PC being off Windows 10 uses an accelerated method called fast startup. It basically stores various parts of your machine's memory state in a hibernation file and loads it when you turn on. This is faster than loading the drivers and other system files individually as is the norm. On my system I disabled hibernation, and consequently fast startup, because I never use it and it leaves a large file (hiberfil.sys) on the disk. I did this by opening a command prompt and typing: powercfg -h off You may not want to do this, so instead you may want to just try disabling fast startup via the Control Panel: This may be connected with gl0ry's boot issue? Let us know if you have any success with these tweaks.
  13. They've just tacked 'Windows 10' on to the list, of OS supported by the old drivers, since Windows 10 was released. And as my previous posts outline, they do partially work with Win 10. The final build has been available for three weeks now, which is more than enough time to release some fully working drivers. Despite appearances to the contrary, it ain't rocket science.
  14. If you're stunned that drivers were not available for pre-release builds then you must have little experience re software development. As part of the Windows Insider Programme I've been receiving Windows 10 builds for the last 10 months. And the vast majority of hardware manufacturers have been developing and releasing new drivers throughout this period. The final Win 10 Public Release build was available 2 weeks before public release. And regarding Line 6 saying the drivers support Windows 10:
  15. I haven't had crackling with the UX2. But I have solved crackling on other systems with different sound chips by going to the Control Panel Advanced Power settings and changing the 'Minimum processor state' to 100%. Not an ideal solution but OK for a temporary workaround. USB can also be a source of crackling, so you could try changing any USB configuration settings on your machine.
  16. Try this if you're having trouble getting a mic working with the UX2: Check the Line 6 Control Panel applet has input set to Mic 1 or whatever input you want to use. In the Windows Control Panel Sound applet, under Recording, have the UX2 set to default device and default communication device. Have the default recording format set to 16bit 48000Hz. These are my settings and it's working with Skype, etc. I can see the level meter moving on the Recording properties page.
  17. To get basic sound output on the UX2 in Windows 10 do this: You can usually have 'allow exclusive mode' on, turn it off you experience any issues with certain apps.
  18. Windows 10 Pro 64bit - Official Release. Driver Version I'm happy to report that Input is now working in the Control Panel Sound applet and with basic Windows apps. e.g. Skype., Audacity, etc. Output is still only available at 16bit 48000Hz.
  19. Build 10240 Pro 64bit. POD Studio UX2. Driver Version Ran monkey and it reported no updates, I had all the latest versions. Used it to reinstall the firmware and drivers anyway, for a laugh, and no change. Cracked open Reaper and ran through all the different drivers, here's my report. Input and Output both working as they should: WDM ASIO WASAPI (Exclusive Mode) Input not working, Output hangs with a continuous noise. Direct Sound Wave Out So, apps that use WDM, ASIO or WASAPI are working. Apps that use Direct Sound or Wave Out are not. e.g. Skype playback is fine, recording is not. Oh, and it completely nukes Audacity, no sound devices available at all, not even motherboard onboard sound.
  20. Build 10240 Pro 64bit. POD Studio UX2. Driver Version Output now works but only on 16bit 48000Hz. Input does not work. Haven't got monkey installed, I'll put that on now and see if there's any difference.
  21. Just to be clear, all my posts are about the Pod Studio UX2.
  22. Here's the reply to my ticket: The general feeling of the Windows Insider community is that build 10240 is the release build. So, we shall just have to wait and see and hope the Line 6 dev team are up for a fast response session.
  23. I've opened a support ticket and included a link to this thread. I'll update with the response. T-7 days until official Windows 10 release meltdown.
  24. Just tried out all 7 of the previous driver versions for Windows 7 & 8, just on the off chance that one of them may work, and had no success. They just behaved the same as the drivers.
