Ok CuzinB and everyone else, I have completely uninstalled all the drivers for the midisport 2x2 bc of the error message on the blue screen. now, when i try recording audio and then press stop after i'm done, a new error appears in acid that says:
"An error has occurred during the current operation. An exception has occurred"

So then I click on details and this is what it says about the error:

Any ideas on what this stuff means? Running this program shouldn't be this difficult. I'm about ready to give up here, so I need a ray of hope from you guys:)The positive thing, if there is any positive part to this, is that now there is no blue screen of death, just acid crashing with the above error.

Date:2/8/2003 1:41:47 PM have to be a bit more specific as to what's going on with your system, like what's installed (both hardware and software).

How long has it been since the system's been formatted? If you're desperate, you can always go that route. One tip: The less you have in your system (again, both hardware and software), the less problems you will have down the road.

mD, for the sake of my crappy typing skills, please refer to some of my recent posts to catch up on what the deal is...

On the audio prefs page, try turning off

"Automatically detect and offset for hardware recording latency"

Let me know if this solves the problem.

Just wanted to try this.

We are looking at the output of the crash dump.

Ok. So here's the deal. This time, I unistalled both Acid and the MidiSport 2x2. Then I reinstalled Acid and it DID NOT CRASH when I recorded audio into a project I was working on with some midi tracks in it. Then I reinstalled the MidiSport 2x2 with the new beta version of the MidiSport drivers (V.4.1.20 beta) that MarkWWW suggested, tried to record audio into that same project, and it crashed. Finally, I uninstalled all the MidiSport drivers and unplugged it, tried to record audio again into that same project in Acid, and it didn't crash!!! So unless someone finds something out that's been overlooked these past few days, I would have to say that something with the MidiSport just ain't jivin' with my computer. So I'll ditch that. I still want to be able to record my midi keyboard, and I was thinking about getting the Audiophile 2496 audio card, but now I don't know since it and the MidiSport are both made from the same company...I don't want all these issues with the audio card too!!!!!!!!!! What do you all think?

Well...there ya go...

However - M-Audio makes excellent products....I swear by their Delta 66 for all my work...could be their MIDI products need some work - OR could be their MIDI products installed with your machine...just don't jive.

I recieved word from MAudio that the beta driver should fix your problem.

You should contact: Alex Tinsley at MAudio

He should help you to resolve this problem.

Thanks for checking on this for me. I had already downloaded the beta driver and tried that as well, but still no luck. I returned the MidiSport yesterday. Thanks though!

jeepman, doesn't your mobo have a midi connector/game port on it? I thought every mobo came with one installed. You will need a special cable(one end has a side which connects to your pc and the other has a pig tail with 1 midi in and 1 midi out). This should handle very basic midi data. Check it out b/c it might get you buy for a bit. Luces

Unfortunately not. It has a Line in, Line Out, and Mic, all 1/8". And since I have a flex case system, if I were to get a new soundcard, it needs to be a half height pci card, and I haven't seen many of those around anywhere. My next computer will have music recording written all over it.

I've been having the SAME FREEKIN' issues as you jeepman, with my computers. I recently sold my Delta 66 because M-Audio admitted that the ASIO drivers (yea, even the beta ones) were still buggy and that they've been getting a lot of support calls from people having problems. So, I purchased an Aardvark LX6 Pro sound card and the latency for audio is MUCH tighter...but I still get that same exception error as you got. I too have a Midisport 2X2, but didn't think that it could be the problem. Now I think it's suspect. What sux is that I used to run audio on an Athlon XP PC. I thought that it was the problem at first because of the Via K266a chipset so I built a P4 1.9 and am having the same issues as I did on my Athlon. I've been a solid supporter of M-Audio/Midiman products for years, and I know that they have been slow to release good working drivers when new OS's are born. This time, I'll never buy another product from them again. Something so stupid as poorly written drivers has made my life music project tardiness HELL!

Well it certainly was the Midisport in my case. Everything crashed when I had it plugged in running the drivers, and the second I unistalled all of that crap, everything worked fine and dandy. I recently got an Edirol and all is well:)
