Hello people,
I have just bought a GINA 20 sound card and Installed it with the downloaded XP drivers.
Windows is haveing a few probs Mainly detecting its Input record channels and the out puts don't show up on the Logic mixe plus Logic freezes up using the Gina card although the play back of tune through windows midea player is fine and I can select the diffrent out channels on the Windows mixer. I ran the ECHO reporter and It says that I need PCI BIOS version 2.1 or higher. Dose this mean that I will have to go out and bye a new Intel mother board and chip. I currently have a AMD Athlon1.8
and an American Megatrend BIOS...
Please if you good people could let me know if this is the problem as going out and buying a new board and chip is an expensive way of finding out. :Sad:
 
I'm running the Gina 20 fine under XP with an AthlonXP 2600+... The PCI BIOS spec version 2.1 was released in 1994, so I should think your system supports it.

What outputs are you seeing when you show 'Audio' in the Environment?

I only have outputs 1 & 2 come up at the end of the enviroment. Yet I think I my have cracked it but I can't be sure untill next month.
I went on to the ECHO web site and found a section about supported chipsets and mine was not on the list. However my brother has a nicer mother board than mine and is getting a new one next month anyhow and the chipset on his old board is supported...so He's giving me that old one and then all "fingers crossed" should be OK. If it isn't then I'm sure you will all be reading another thread from on the same subject. :?
 
The 'supported chipsets' list may well be out of date, mind...

Forgive me for asking a stupid question, but have you unchecked 'PC AV' and checked 'ASIO' in the Audio Drivers tabs? I'm fairly sure that the Echo WDM driver would show all the outputs if it was selected.

My experience of Gina 20's is that they just work.

My suspicion is that there is a little "user error" at work here but without more info I can't really tell.

I reckon Jpsych is on the right track - i think its a Logic "Audio Drivers" setting problem - if you had the "Audio Drivers 2" page set to "ASIO", then you would see all 10 outs and 4 ins - if you can't then you are probably set to "PC AV" and using Direct Sound drivers or even worse - MME.

Considering the age of the Gina 20, i reckon its unlikely that your mobo chipset is an issue here.
 
User error......Me
Just because I went away and did what you said and now have the inputs and the end of the mixer..... I'm so deeply hurt.... :Grin: :Grin:

I dunno - you start a big thread on what soundcard to buy, you get loads of advice, and then you go and ignore it all and buy an old piece of tat like a Gina 20.

:rolleyes:
