Hi,

a while ago a Guitar Rig update sneaked a bunch of NI asio / device drivers into my system for hardware I do not posess (Rig control etc. etc.). I uninstalled these drivers but S1 still lists them in the audio device selection popup. Any other software only lists the remaining real devices I have.
Seems that S1 has saved this device list somewhere else? If so, is there any way of updating / resetting it or even manually deleting stuff from the registry or whatever?

Regards

I had a similar situation recently. As I recall, I went to the Audio-MIDI Utility (I'm on a Mac), selected Window>Audio Devices, and then right-clicked the old driver and deleted it there. Or I may have selected the driver and hit the "minus" key at the bottom of the window. It no longer shows up as an option in Studio One.

In windows this requires removing ASIO driver entries from the registry. Have a look at this:

Aaahhhh, thanks mate! I knew the buggers had to be lingering somewhere!

Oddly that Steinberg link didnt work for me, I had to seach the knowledge base and then klick on the number of the search result (not the title) to see the actual article. So for anyone with the same trouble: If you feel safe with regedit, just go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> ASIO and delete the unwanted device entries.

mrpicholas, thanks for chiming in, I'm on win though.

For folks that maybe dont want to screw around in the registry, try ccleaner. Free download, and has a registry cleaner. First uninstall the drivers, and then ccleaner will see the programs are no longer installed and clean the registry entries. Not 100% all the time, but may be worth a try before manually going into the registry. Also backs up the registry prior to cleaning in case something goes wrong.

Whether doing it manually or with one of the various regcleaner programs you should ALWAYS
back up your reg before making changes. If you're going to use a regcleaner I suggest you look
over the results carefully before allowing it to delete every entry it wants to.
