I have been using REW with UMIK for a bit over a year. First with Java (because of old laptop without HDMI) and later with ASIO4ALL. I have a 5.1.4 setup with a Minidsp HD for the subwoofer. Windows 10 HDMI cable to the yamaha aux. All of a sudden today I no longer was able to use the Umik in REW. Last time I used it sucsessfully was October 2018 (yes I have been pretty content for that long lol). I couldnt choose the umik so I checked the ASIO control within REW and there was a big red X next to it. The mic works fine in Windows. If I snap my fingers the green bar moves and I can talk into it using other apps. I have tried all things I can google including: * making sure I have exited all apps I know use a mike (skype/webex teams/firefox etc) * flipping the new privacy mic setting off and on * unchecking the "exclusive mode" boxes" * muting the windows sound settings * unplugging and replugging hdmi/umik in different orders * upgrading to 5.20 * uninstalling and downgrading to 5.19 * 32 and 64 bit tested * tried flexasio * reinstalled ASIO4ALL It really feels like something is holding the mike and not making me use it in REW. Trying to reload and even just checking the ASIO control usually freezez REW so hard that I have to close the app by TaskManager. Then I have to reboot otherwise just starting REW again makes it just freeze instantly ( I will never be able to click "preferences"). If I do choose "Java" it imediately works and I get asked what calibrationfile to use. I can measure and get perfect results in Java-mode. Tryin to switch to ASIO gives instant freeze sometimes even before the pull down meny even goes away - thats how instant it freezez. Another clue could be that I am no longer able to "setup a mike" bc it goes straight to saying speech isnt supported with current settings. I have tried US/US and I can then get it to go through the "setup" wich only consists of me talking into the umic and Windows accepting it. I am no longer able to get to the stage where you have the green/yellow/red bar of actual mic-setup. Open to any suggestions.
