Zoom R8 + Ableton + Windows 10 (64bit)

Post by magustomoe » Wed Jan 27, 2016 1:05 pm

Hello,
I am trying to use Zoom R8 as an audio interface with Ableton. I am unable to use it with the official ASIO drivers.

When I try to select it it always throws an error. This is what I found in the log files:

59235 ms. ASIO: ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver: Open: started
-------------------------------------
59250 ms. ASIO: ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver: Open failed (ASIOInit) with Error:
ASE_NotPresent: hardware input or output is not present or available :-1000
59250 ms. ASIO: ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver: Close: started
-------------------------------------
59250 ms. ASIO: ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver: Close: finished
-------------------------------------
59250 ms. Message Box: Failed to open the audio device "ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver."
59270 ms. Message Box: Failed to open the audio device "ZOOM R8 ASIO Driver."

I know I am using it correctly because the ASIO Zoom R8 driver works when I try it with other testing programs. I have tried both the 32bit and 64bit versions of Ableton without luck.

In the meantime I can use ASIO4ALL which works nicely, but I would really like Ableton not to lock my soundcard exclusively (which I cannot seem to avoid with ASIO4ALL).

Also, I have the Lite version of Ableton (got it with my midi controller) so I am not allowed to post on their forums and ask for help. I asked Zoom, but they pointed their finger at Ableton (and they are probably right about it since the device seems to work in other apps).

Did anyone have any luck with the aforementioned interface/DAW/OS combination?

Welcome to the forum. It doesn't look like any of us are using a R8 with Ableton on a Windows 10 computer. Sorry you didn't receive any helpful replies.

Same problem here with Zoom R24 + Ableton Live 9.7.1 (latest) + Windows 10 (64 bit). All drivers, software versions are up to date. Zoom are you listening?
