After good experiense with my SL 16.0.2 (for my humble home/mobile rig), I'm now helping out a friend with setting up his home/mobile studio based around the bigger brother SL 16.4.2.

Everything works as expected, with the one exception of the Firewire return to the 2 Track input and the monitoring bus.

Mixer Firmware - 1.50a, build - 188
Installed newest Universal Control from web site.

What done so far:
Set the WDM 1 (Front Left) to StudioLive 2 Track in Left
Set the WDM 1 (Front Right) to StudioLive 2 Track in Right

I guess these are referred to as Input 17 and 18.

Anybody else seen this? Or solved this problem?
Can this be driver related?
Did this work with the earlier driver versions?

Thanks in advance.

Out of curiousity did you arm the firewire return for the tape knob? Two buttons below the knob.

Another thing that has caught me a few times is to make the WDM changes to the outputs and not the inputs. I mention this because you said 17 and 18 inputs in your post.

The configuration is accurate other than that.

We tried to arm the firewire return in both the 2 Track section and the Monitor Bus section. Set the 2Track volume knob to about 12 o'clock (I understood this controls the volume for the firewire return before it splits to their respective sections).

I guess I should have said "referred to as output 17 and 18". My bad We were obviouesly mapping them under the Output section in the WDM settings window.

One thing though:
Do you really have to arm the firewire button in the 2 Track section to "let it through" to the Monitoring Bus?

This will in that case be a bit "clumsy", as you then cannot listen to your software Main Out without sending it also to the Main Mix on the 16.4.2!!!!
Don't necessarily want that you know

Thank for answering.

To monitor the 2track input you have to enable the firewire button in the monitor section and turn up the 2track knob (the firewire button in the 2track section can remain disabled ).

Thanks. That's what I expected

But anyway, I still can't hear the firewire return on either. Strange.....hmm

Did you try the analog 2-track inputs? Analog vs. digital, but routing is the same as for the 17/18 fw return.

No I did not connect something to the analog 2 Track input. Only tried to listen to my DAW's main out in the monitor section/bus. Will try on occasion.
