M-AUDIO FIREWIRE SOLO FIREWIRE AUDIO INTERFACE

The Solo is a four channel audio interface that comes with a driver and control panel for configuration. Unlike most interfaces used with the Paca(rana), this interface can be used with the Paca(rana) only if the computer has the M-Audio driver installed.

M-Audio has made the S/PDIF inputs and outputs the first channels on the interface. As a consequence, Kyma will initially assign channels 1 and 2 to the S/PDIF inputs/outputs and channels 3 and 4 to the analog inputs/outputs. You can use Route inputs and Route outputs under the Configure drop down menu in the DSP Status panel to change this routing.

IDEA! The S/PDIF inputs and outputs are inactive unless the clock source in Kyma's DSP Status window is set to S/PDIF.

ALERT! When using the Solo as the audio interface for the Paca(rana), use the DSP Status window to control the clock source and the sample rate; do not use the M-Audio control panel to change the clock source or the sample rate.

IDEA! When the Paca(rana) is turned off (or disconnected from your computer), the Solo can be used as the audio interface for your computer. When the Paca(rana) is turned on and the Solo is selected as its audio interface, the Paca(rana) will take over the Solo and prevent audio from being transferred between the Solo and the computer.

Using the Solo on the Macintosh

ALERT! When using the Solo without the M-Audio driver installed, audio input will function, but audio output will be muted.

You can use the M-Audio FireWire application to control the internal mixer levels even when the Paca(rana) is using the Solo as its audio interface.

Using the Solo on Windows

ALERT! When using the Solo without the M-Audio driver installed, audio input will function, but audio output will be muted.

ALERT! The Solo is expected to work under Windows but has not yet been tested.
