Re: Help with the OMNI IO
First, let me state that I have zero experience with the Omni. But I am also of firm believer in RTFM, even for stuff I'm only dreaming about.
Unfortunately, the documentation of the Hardware Setup is a little bit confusing.
In the discussion of the Monitoring tab beginning on page 26, you'll find the following paragraph on page 27:
Changes to the Monitor page are reflected in thepages of the Hardware Setup and the I/O Setup.
Output options on the Main page in the Hardware
Setup dialog, the Output and Bus pages of
the I/O Setup dialog, and in the Output path
names for tracks in your Pro Tools session. Because
of this, you should always configure the
Monitor page first, before configuring the other
If you did not follow this procedure, it might be a good idea to first go to each of the other tabs and click the "Set To Default" button (and you have to do this on each tab.
Do the "Monitor" tab setup as outlined in the manual, then do the rest of the Hardware setup.
And if you did do things in accordance with the manual, allow me to quote SNLs esteemed Emily Litella..."Never mind"...
Note that all opinions, observations, whatever, in this post are mine, unless I'm being mean or am wrong, in which case it's somebody else's fault. I do not work for Avid (their loss)...my only relationship with Avid is that of a customer (when I'm not too poor to buy stuff, like now)...and that hot administrative assistant...that's more of a "thing" than a "relationship" (that should keep them guessing for a while...)
Just rockin'...what more is there?

Re: Help with the OMNI IO
I was once caught in the 'endless cycle of silence' with the Omni. The problem for me was forgetting to reboot the Omni after setting all to default and resetting.
