    Sound card takeover

    Most of the time, when my FM-9 is connected to my Windows 11 computer (which is connected through a mixer to studio monitors) it plays fine. But sometimes booting everything up changes my audio setting to the FM9 and then I hear nothing. I am old and stupid and usually forget where to find...

    SOLVED. FM9 Edit not connecting over USB

    Here's another solution. I installed the driver first but FM-9 Edit still did not connect on my PC laptop. After trying several restarts and different sequences of plugging things in, I went to the Preferences menu on FM9 and de-selected and then re-selected the inputs. That solved it.
