Have you set the VST Audio Connection options correctly?

When you say it hangs, this is for 3 seconds, or forever?
I have set the VST Audio Connection options for the available "Virtual Out" bus of the Indigo card, but it simply won't play (the cursor remains frozen and no audio is output)

I am wondering if the Echo ASIO driver is incompatible with the latest Wavelab 8.5 (and also 7.2.1) ?
What is confusing is that it worked fine for the free trial version of Wavelab 8.5 and also for Wavelab 7, until a few days ago ?

For reference here is the Readme of the Echo 8.5 driver that I have installed: http://files.echoaudio.com/drivers/wind ... ci_8.5.pdf

and here is the manual for the Indigo soundcard: http://www.diareportages.org/00Pictures ... indigo.pdf

It hangs briefly, only a few seconds,

Quit, then erase this folder:
AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab 8.5\Presets\VST Audio Connections
then restart. Does that help?

Can you try different kinds of i/o?

Hi PG,

I tried erasing that folder but no change. However, then I tried ASIO4All driver and it works, so maybe that is the solution ? Is there any downside to using ASIO4ALL in place of the Echo Indigo driver ?

ASIO4ALL is a good driver.

Yesterday I put ASIO4ALL on my computer and I no longer have the hang on WL. I guess in my case it was the ASIO driver that was causing the problem.

FWIW

I hoped this would be fixed in WL9 but ... no, it hangs just like WL8 does.

WL9 with RME HDSPe MADI, it's a major PITA. After a while in a session, it only plays for 10 seconds, then no more sound is coming out.
