MOTU 828mkII USB audio engine issue...

I hope someone out there can help - this is doing my head in!


When I plug in my MOTU 828 mkII in and configure the Audio Input in Live Preferences it instantly switches the audio engine to off.

It doesn't matter if i set the MOTU to the output or input the result is always the same.

Anyone got a clue what's going on please?

Usually I can work out what's going on bit this has me baffled!



OS X 10.5.8

Ableton 8.3

    I am using a similar setup except OSX 10.6.8 and have no problems. Do you have the latest MOTU drivers installed? I am using driver version 1.6.50450 which recommends OSX 10.5.8 or later.
