Install the board per the
instructions in the E-MU 1212m manual.
Then download and install the latest drivers from E-MU
Support. You will need both the
E-MU® PatchMix DSP Application and E-MU Digital Audio System
Driver. Make sure that you
select the correct bus version for your card (PCI or PCIe). Note: There are
driver and software differences between the PCI and PCIe versions.
WARNING: There are currently problems with WIndows 7 and older programs
which do not support ASIO driver.
Pricing and specifications subject to change without notice.

The following instructions explain
how to set up the card to feed both
PowerSDR and a second application, like MixW or CW Skimmer, at the same
time. If you prefer, you can use this file that I created, SDR_192.session.
Right click on the link and select Save Link As. Save the file in the
My Documents\My Sessions folder which PatchMix created when you
installed it. To use the file, click on the "open
file" icon below (in the file
group above the big blue box), navigate to the SDR_192.session file,
it. It will create the proper session for you.
You can also create your own session. To do so, follow the instructions
a default 192 kHz config using
the "new session" icon (the far left button of the six above the big
blue window). Use the "192 kHz minimum" choice. Delete all the input
strips using the
little "X" in the upper left hand corner. You will be asked if you're
sure about each step, but go ahead and delete them until there are no
strips left. Add a new strip using the "*" in the upper left hand
corner. You will get the dialog window below.
Physical Source, then click on the blue oval and select "I/O Card IN
L/R". Pan L should be panned to -90 and Pan R to +90. This routes the
sound card line input to BUS 1.
Add another new strip and choose Host
Source. Click on the blue oval
and select ASIO OUT 1/2. Once again, the pans should be set for +/-90.
Insert a Send by right clicking in
the top insert
field, and select OUT 1/2 I/O Card. This inputs the sound from PowerSDR
and routes it to the sound card output jack. Click the little M to mute
the strip... this removes the strip's output from BUS 1 so that it
doesn't mix with the sound card input.
In the BUS 1 output section, just
below the big window, right click in
the left most insert field and select ASIO IN 1/2. This sends the bus
output to PowerSDR's ASIO input.
In the insert field to the right of
that one, right click and select
Wave L/R Host. This routes BUS 1 to CW Skimmer (using MME or WDM
Your setup should look like mine when
you're done. Save the session. I
have posted my session file in the Files section of the LP-PAN Yahoo
is a picture of what the PowerSDR Audio Setup tab should look like for
this card. You may or may not need the Expert mode selected. On my
older PC, setting a latency of 2ms helped the card start reliably. All
other settings should be matched exactly as shown, except "Line In
Gain", "Mic In Gain" and "Output Voltage" which are meaningless in the
context of LP-PAN.
If you plan to use CW Skimmer
simultaneously with PowerSDR, use the following pictures as a guideline
for setting up Skimmer. Your
"Audio IF, Hz" setting will be different than mine. A ballpark setting
can be found using this formula...
CW Pitch - Global Offset = Audio IF, Hz
CW Pitch is the setting in the K3. It should also be set in
PowerSDR and LP-Bridge to match.
Global Offset is the setting in PowerSDR>Setup>SoftRock IF Stage
tab. You will need to fine tune it after the initial setting. Use the
default CW filter in the K3 when doing this. Make sure the DSP controls
are set to NORmal, as they shift the Skimmer display if not.
