  • Install the driver -  restart the computer after the install VERY Important

Open a new session to make sure the I/O on the tracks work - Don't open an existing session yet - OPEN a NEW Project to test the audio output.

  • Open ProTools and hit cancel before opening a project or a new project
  • In ProTools go to >setup>playback engine and choose the ASIO4All option

On every track


Go to the "Edit Window View Selector" drop down






Choose I/O and make sure the output is set to

your ASIO sound output


In this example the SST 1-2 worked for this laptop setup

But try all the outputs till you find the one that works and you

hear audio output to the computer speakers

This is also an example from a different computer setup.


Output is set to HD Audio Output 1-2


Again it depends what type of sound card you have as to what

your Audio Output will look like
