Not sure if this is the right community to ask but since it starte with FCP, this is where I guess I will start.

Running FCP 5. Mac OS 10.5.8

Media interface is an IoLA using the easy setup of 8 BIT composite to DV setting.


Been capturing media fine then last event, I started things up and no audio was being captured. The meters in FCP weren't indicating although the mixer we are using was showing a signal being sent.


Verified output from mixer by sending the output to another capture device.


Tested MAC system as follows.

1. Tried to capture into Soundtrack pro.  Could not

2. Checked preferences in MAC to make sure input was set to line in and not digital.

3. Made sure there was a signal on the input meters in preferences. It was.

3. Play back music previously captured and from itunes.  Play back fine and could listen

4. Having selected line input and headphones output, observing an input signal, I could not hear anything on the output of either output jacks. 


Bottom line, anything recorded could be heard.  Anything live could not be recorded.


Any ideas?


I have trashed all preferences, removed the third party software and made sure all updates have been completed for the MAC.

Mac OS X (10.5.8)
