We seem to be going round and round here. Suggest you email DJ-Tech Ltd. at [email protected] . From here.

They should set you straight, or refund you if software not fit for purpose.

Good luck.

I have been unable to find a Quick Start Guide.pdf for the cable you have (are you sure there isn't one on the CD you got with it?), but found one for the Alesis PhonoLink cable and this is what it says:

In most cases (especially if you are using Windows) PhonoLink will be automatically selected as your computer's default recording device. If you find you are unable to record any audio with PhonoLink, follow the instructions below for your operating system.

WINDOWS 7

  1. Go to Start Menu | Control Panel | Hardware and Sound | Sound.

  2. Select the "Recording" tab.

  3. Make sure Microphone – USB Audio CODEC is set as the default device, then click "OK."

lotvic, you're an old fart!

"1. Go to Start Menu | Control Panel | Hardware and Sound | Sound.

2. Select the "Recording" tab.

3. Make sure Microphone – USB Audio CODEC is set as the default device, then click "OK.""

This is Windows 7 not XP. And don't listen to older Google advice... so say I.

No such thing as an USB audio codec. The connecting USB is seen or not. Windows will do the rest automatically. You need to contact DJ-Tech Ltd about your problem .

rdave13 (grin) still getting at me 'cos I haven't fully converted to my W7 pc (thumb nose) :D

You'd better tell Alesis to alter their Quick Start Guide, I did a straight copy from it. (you may grovel, once you have read the .pdf)
