  • Blue Icicle question???

    I'm working on getting a setup working so I can do some speaker measurement; ARTA and/or HOLM. I've been getting a lot of help from some very knowledgeable TT members. Things aren't going very well and we're thinking there might be a hardware issue. I'm using a Blue Icicle, but in device manager (the BI is labeled USB Multi-Channel Audio Device), it says the USB device cannot start (Code 10). I know this is referring to my BI because when I unplug the BI, the USB Multi-Channel Audio Device entry goes away. I'm using Windows 7.
    Any suggestions how I can get the BI "started?"
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Check windows support. There is a possible device driver issue.

        I use mine with XP and there are no issues, plug it in and it loads the drivers, then in the HolmImpulse control panel it shows up as a USB Mic. You can tell it's working by turning on the Record Meter.

        I just remembered, I loaded my shop laptop with W7 a few months back and the Blue works the same on it as it did with XP.

          I happen to have an older laptop with XP on it. When I use it, it recognizes my BI. However, I get the following error when I click on the StratRec icon - "waveInOpen: The specified format is not supported or cannot be translated. Use the capabilities function to determine the supported formats." I have no idea what that is and I can't find anything I can use on a Google search. All I can say is GRRRRRR!
          Thanks,

            When I look at it in Device Manager it shows up as USB P n P (plug and play, I imagine) device. What is StratRec? ARTA? Can't help you there.

                Idk man, I just plug mine in and it works... There has never been an issue other than audio input/output swapping, which takes all of a few seconds to sort out...

                  Try changing USB ports. One may act as the primary and may cure your problem.

                    I've got a fairly old (5yr+?, and CHEAP) Compaq tower running Vista Home, and just using the onboard sound (chip). It's got 2 USBs on the front panel. If I right-click on the little speaker icon (down on the "tray"?) and open up "Recording Devices", it says:
                    MICROPHONE - Realtek HD Audio - Not plugged in
                    LINE IN - Realtek HD Audio - Not plugged in

                    As soon as I plug my Blue Icicle into EITHER port, I hear a tone ("ba-loop"), and immediately, added to the top of the list (with a green checkmark) I see:
                    MICROPHONE - Blue Icicle - Working

                    I've never had any issues with it.

                      Mike,

                      I've got blue icicle working on a very old Compaq laptop and Windows 7. I suspect like peepaj that it is a corrupt Windows driver that comes with the operating system (not a downloadable driver). Are you using the laptop for anything else? If not, perhaps a re-install of the operating system and an update might be the way forward.
