Record / Playback configuration - newbie ?

more general question of previous post

A newbie here - just purchased N-Track upon realizing that my previous software which did not support ASIO drivers was the reason for the severe latency problem I was experiencing. I record with a Tascam US-122 Audio/MIDI interface, and I went with N-Track for its ASIO support (and low price tag, obviously) because I want to use the Direct Monitor feature of the Tascam. I’m trying to figure out how to set-up my “Recording” and “Playback” sound card options to use the Tascam. Can anyone help me with configuring N-Track 4.2.1 to support this control?

My recording & playback options are: (SigmaTel is my computer soundcard)

Audio Playback Devices:
ASIO US-122 (16 bit)
ASIO US-122 (24 bit)
MME: SigmaTel Audio
MME: US-122 Out
MME: Wave Mapper
WDM: SigmaTel Audio
1-WDM: US-122 Out

Audio Recording Devices:
ASIO US-122 (16 bit)
ASIO US-122 (24 bit)
MME: SigmaTel Audio
MME: US-122 Out
MME: Wave Mapper
WDM: SigmaTel Audio
1-WDM: US-122 Out


Which options do I select in order to record with the US-122? Just ASIO, or do I select more than one? Also, Tascam customer support said that in order for the Direct Monitor function of The Tascam to work, I also need to set my MIDI ports (both MIDI In and MIDI Out) to the US-122. Where is this option available?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated guys.

Thanks for the help,

I would choose the ASIO US-122 (24 bit) for both record and playback. That should give all the I/O audio/digital ports available to n-Track. To choose what ports you want to use in n-Track, click on the hammer icon on the playback VU meter, select I/O ports (if I remember right - doing this from work).

For the midi port, I believe you need to set that in the Control Panel, Sound and Audio Devices, Audio - at the bottom. Since I don’t use midi, someone may need to correct me.
