Default VX Pocket Recording

I'm using a PowerBook G3 / 333MHz / 192M RAM and a VX-pocket sound card.
This should work perfect with the VX but what happens ...
I can import audio tracks that are already on a hard disk;
I can work with these tracks in PT and monitor it trough VX - works fine;
but when I want to record a new track, I have to:
1_ quit PT
2_ set the sound input manually to VX
3_ restart PT
4_ record the track
5_ quit PT again
8_ set the input back to Mac built in
9_ restart PT

if I don't follow these steps, I'm not able to record through VX
or PT is playing back a strange distorted sound ( sounds like a wrong digital sync)

Is there anything I do wrong?
I suppose this has only something to do with the vx driver?
Is there any solution, because this could be a great portable solution !!!

Digigram say that PT5 Free doesn't work properly when recording using the VX Pocket. They are supposed to be working on a fix.

This was my email to Digigram:

Are there plans for updated drivers, so the VX Pocket will work with Pro Tools Free just as well as Powermix?

This is the email returned to me from Marc Bénard at Digigram:


Powermix worked with VX Pocket sound manager driver. This driver has not
changed. But now there is Digidesign Pro Tools Free and it does not work.
So, not sure it is on the Digigram side. See Digidesign user forums, there
are a lot of non-enthusiasts, whatever the sound board brand.
Anyway, Digigram agrees that the VX pocket+PT Free would make a great

Best regards,

Same problems. For playback try opening the Hardware Setting window and closeing it. You don't need to change anything. This sould take care of the "distortion" issue. I however still get short pausing during playback. But it doesn't affect bouncing to disk. I can bounce a mix to disk and play it back in Peak without a problem.

I've got this reply from Digigram:

Hello Stijn,

We are aware of those problems and are currently working on it. We do not
have a fix for the moment, but hopefully will have one pretty soon.
