Default Focusrite 2.0 audio driver problem

I'm new to PT and just trying to get started. I have Protools 11 and a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8. Anytime I try to record, PT says Protools could not initialize Focusrite 2.0 audio driver, please check settings to make sure they are correct. I have checked them and think they are correct. I'm not real computer savvy. OS is Windows 8. Any ideas? Please help.

Hi tross405,

Can you please try the following:

First turn off the 18i8 and run this update to MixControl 1.8b2.


Next go to your Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and uninstall the Focusrite USB 2.0 driver 2.5.1.

Then install this 2.5b4 driver.


Please let me know if this runs better for you.

If you keep having this issue please contact us directly so we can get more info about your system.


Best regards.

Katherine Kaplan // Focusrite Technical Support
