Sequel 2 and RockFrog are no longer communicating. I had both programmes installed on my Vista box, then decided to upgrade to Windows 7. I knew there’d possibly be some trouble but nothing Win7 couldn’t handle. I had earlier upgraded from XP to Vista, reinstalled all drivers and everything worked. I figured that upgrading to Win7 would be a walk in the park. Or so I thought. I had to of course reinstall Sequel 2, which I did. Then I reinstalled my E-MU Midi keyboard drivers. Then reinstalled the RockFrog driver. But suddenly, Sequel 2 doesn’t see Rockfrog anymore. Can you help? Read on…
I used to be that I could select the ‘ASIO 2.0 – RockFrog’ driver in the Audio Settings panel in Sequel 2, here:
…but as you can see, the ‘ASIO 2.0 – RockFrog’ is no longer there. Instead, a new driver called ‘Generic Low Latency ASIO driver’ seems to have replaced my RockFrog.
OK, so perhaps I did something wrong. I went to ‘Recording Devices’ to see how Windows 7 identifies the RockFrog. This is what I get:
OK, that looks fine, too. When I plug my guitar into my RockFrog and play some, I can see that there’s a signal in the small blueish panel to the right. But I don’t hear anything, not even when I plug my headphone straight into the RockFrog. Still, there is a signal.
So did I go insane? What’s up? To all intents and purposes, the RockFrog seems to be recognised as an audio device correctly by Win7, I can see that the computer is getting a signal – but I’m not hearing anything, and Sequel 2 doesn’t recognise it.
So I digged some deeper into the system properties. Here is the System Manager’s rundown of the ‘Controllers for sound, video and games’:
There it is: the RockFrog, next to my Creative SB X-Fi. Right where it should be. No help there, so I digged some deeper…
…and went straight to the device’s properties and looked in detail at precisely what drivers Microsoft had assigned. Here’s the rundown:
Hmmm. I’m not sure but this looks like standard Microsoft Windows stuff to me, not any 3rd party JamMate drivers. But I could be mistaking.
So here I am. Again, the computer seems to be picking up my guitar’s signal when I play it plugged into the RockFrog. But I don’t hear it, and Sequel 2 doesn’t see the RockFrog.
