Details about the problem you are experiencing and how to reproduce it:
I just bought a M-Audio Fast Track Pro to use with REAPER. I'm completely new to home recording.
I installed the newest M-Audio drivers from the website and then plugged in the Fast Track Pro. I installed REAPER and started it. I set the options in REAPER according to the instructions here:
The green Signal LED on the FTP is lighting up when I play. I have headphones plugged into the Fast Track Pro, and I can hear my guitar when I play.
I have the Fast Track Pro on Instrument In (push-button is out - I tried both ways just to make sure, though). I have my instrument cable plugged into the 1 input on the front of the device (I've also tried input 2).
I selected "Mono Input Line 1 Fast Track Pro" on the track in REAPER (I also tried Line 2 Fast Track Pro).
However, I am not getting any signal in REAPER when trying to play/record my guitar in using my M-Audio Fast Track Pro.
I turned on monitoring, but I'm still not seeing any waves when recording and I don't see any activity on the volume meter on the track or at the bottom of the screen.
I did a test by setting the recording device to my web cam. When, I did, I saw activity in the volume meters and waves when recording, so I expect I should see that when using my Fast Track Pro as well.
I have since disconnected the web cam and speakers from my computer. I also went into the Devices section of the Control Panel in Windows and uninstalled any other sound drivers. I then restarted the computer. Only the Fast Track Pro is installed and set on ASIO settings.
In my "Playback Devices" and "Recording Devices" sections of the Sound settings, I have the "Line 1/2 - M-Audio Fast Track Pro" set as my default.
Can someone please assist me with this issue?
