My Audio Driver Isn't Working

Hello! I use Ableton Live 9 Intro, and I had 3 choices for my audio driver: No Audio, ASIO, or MME/DirectX. I use MME/DirectX. However, I was trying to open a live set one day and it said that my audio engine was off, so when i went to turn it on my MME/DirectX option was gone. Obviously "No Audio" doesnt work and ASIO doesnt work either! What should I do? I can't find the MME.DirectX option anymore...

    I would start by re-installing he driver of your audio interface to see if it shows up again.

    Personally, I'd choose ASIO. This is typically the one that comes with your audio device and is most well suited for recording/playback in a DAW.
