M Audio 2x2 C Series Drivers Free Download Install Update
Andy October 19, Okay so here goes my 5th attempt to get a resolution on the inability of M-Audio to fully understand the M-Track 2X2M driver installation issue that had me completely clean re-install Windows 10 three times and stop my product from being an expensive paperweight just sitting by my DAW work desk being non-functional. In late September I purchased the M-Track after seeing it being demonstrated on the youtube channel.
I thought it would be great for my needs having a nice sleek audio interface with a small footprint. I duly plugged it in and loaded the software and driver with no issue on my Windows 10 Pro set-up. However I had to alter some hardware a couple of weeks later and this meant I had to do a clean install of Win A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. Code 52 " I tried and tried getting it installed, after all it work before though not sure if that was an earlier version of the driver??
Re-installed Windows again, making sure I loaded all updates, chipset drivers etc. Just as I thought it wouldn't but I assumed M-Audio support must know what they are talking about. So second call to M-Audio support UK and after explaining my problem again, the person said he would have to check with someone else, so put on hold for a few minutes and then on return he repeated that its fully MIDI compliant and I don't need drivers in Windows So here I am at stalemate still with a glorified paperweight, listening to support staff that obviously have no idea what they are talking about, as being MIDI compliant has nothing to do with the M-Tracks functionality as an audio interface, which is what I bought it for.
No other piece of hardware I have plugged into my PC has had its drivers refused, so this must be an issue that is M-Audio's responsibility to sort out. I am not saying M-Audio equipment is poor as I have several other great items by them, I am just frustrated that I cannot get this issue resolved like many others with the same issue.
Don't tell me to look to Microsoft as no other drivers throw up this issue and don't tell me to disable code signing check every time I want to use my M-Track. Its a good job I have a Focusrite Interface to fall back on. Corey S Employee December 30, Hi everyone, Heads up! We just posted a new driver for the M-Track 2x2 and M-Track 2x2M that will work around this problem with the Driver Signature enforcement. Corey S Employee October 19, Andy, Sorry for the experience with support. I can verify that the M-Track 2x2 and 2x2M both require drivers.
Please use the guide below to verify that you're downloading the right one: The drivers are fully signed. Please see my post over here if you're still unsure. These have been fully tested and confirmed supported for the latest version of Windows 10, but it's important that you have all your updates in order.
The driver signature process has changed recently and the M-track 2x2 will require the appropriate Windows updates in order to be recognized properly.
If your other devices don't use this new process, than obviously they will be unaffected. I do not recommend simply booting into a different mode to work around this, but in order to dig deeper you will need to touch base with Microsoft.
The fact that this was working and only stopped after you reinstalled the OS is very telling. Let me know if you have any questions.
Not a problem Acknowledged In progress Solved. How does this make you feel? Thanks for your response and apologies if I sounded a little angry, it was through pure frustration.
You have confirmed what I think I have just discovered. I have disabled secure boot within my bios and the driver now works fine, though I am unsure how I get the new driver signature into the secure boot database.
I assume this is done during a windows update. I will trawl through all the updates and check I have everything, though I assumed I have as I have run windows update several times to ensure I am up to date.
Again thanks for your help and guidance, I hope to have everything back to normal soon. Cheers Andy How does this make you feel? Patrick Lafferty November 19, I'd like to chime in here, as I'm having the same exact issue. Code 52 " I see that M Track 2x2 Control Panel is installed, but when I run it, it reads "Hardware Not Connected" across the top, despite the cable being clearly connected and the power light being illuminated on the M-Track.
Microsoft had me uninstall the driver, open MSConfig and disable all non-Microsoft services, reboot my machine, and reinstall the driver, but the problem persists. To give some background information on my system: Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated. I would really love to start using this product, and do not want to put my machine at risk by using the above boot workaround. Thanks, Pat How does this make you feel? I'm have the same exact issue too! Danny Rock November 22, I also have this problem.
Ive reset my entire system as a last resort thinking that this must work now. I dont get it. A brand new HP i7 Envy Desktop back to factory settings and windows updates installed. What can I do before I send this back and get a Focusrite? Alex Gray November 23, With this and the buggy drivers for the M-Track Eight in other threads, it's very clear that M-Audio really needs to get its act together and hire driver experts to resolve the niggles before what should be trivial issues drag the company's reputation down the pan.
The 'tech support' staff really don't have a clue, as in my own experience and as shown by Andy's experience. They just try to point the finger at anything else they can think of other than an obvious problem with M-Audio drivers. Whatever the root cause, if drivers installed on otherwise smooth running machines from a wide range of users and situations cause them to fall over repeatedly and frequently, then the drivers are not fit for purpose.
Writing reliable drivers is perhaps one of the toughest software jobs to do, but that is what we are paying good money for, not a pile of bundled software tat that we could get as a cheap add-on if we really wanted it. Good software drivers cope with real situations on real machines, day-in day-out. M-Audio's current drivers for the M-Track Eight do not do this.
Danny Rock November 23, I've disabled secure boot in the bios and this appears to have rectified the problem. I suppose I'm left with an unsecure boot now.
Funnily enough, I was reinstalling Pro Tools I originally restored my system following a problem with right clicking and creating a new folder in windows explorer. Windows explorer would be unresponsive for a couple of minutes every time. It was doing my head in so I hit reset in windows recovery. The digital signature problem occurred after the windows reset. I solved the original problem but then the M Track was causing problems when I was reinstalling everything again.
I'm thinking that when I reset the system it may have been better to have taken out the additional hard drive that I had installed and an Avermedia capture card in a pci express slot when reinstalling windows and keep the hardware as it was when it was bought from HP, then do a factory setting reset.
That's all I can think it is unless Microsoft have screwed something up in a recent update. Alex Gray November 26, The drivers install without problem for me too. The problem is that the system is from then onwards unstable - it will crash unpredictably, sometimes one in a few days, sometimes several times in a day. No-on is saying that the drivers fail on all systems, but it is clear that they fail on too many systems.
Just because a driver works on some systems and not on others it does not mean it is the fault of those systems - a properly written driver should work on a wide range of systems and subsystems, and should not cause a crash by attempting to address non-existent code. Patrick Lafferty November 29, Corey S - Any weigh in here would be greatly appreciated.
Even if it's a general timeline of when we can expect updated drivers. I am currently ready to return my M-Track 2x2, but would rather keep it if you can give me some good news. Alex Gray November 29, Corey S - I second Patrick's question. My M-Track Eight is currently useless as it's drivers make the system unstable - they cause Windows to stop when they try to reference paged out memory causing a BSOD. Sometimes they will go a day or two without trouble, but rarely longer than that, and sometimes they crash twice or three times in a day.
The memory dump points to a driver software fault rather than any hardware issue, and no other software on my system has any problem when the M-Audio drivers are removed. If this can't be fixed, I think M-Audio should offer to buy back all affected units at original purchase price.
