Description of Issue
“Device Initiationalization Failed” error when attempting to enable Audiolense ASIO following upgrade to the most recent version of Roon. I’ve un-installed and re-installed both Roon and Audiolense Convolver but the problem remains. Also, I’ve renamed the RAATServer folder to force Roon to create a new server but this hasn’t solved the issue.
Thanks for taking the time to write in, and my apologies for the delay in getting to your thread!
Do you experience any playback/initialization issues when playing audio from other sources outside of Roon?
From your core diagnostic, we’re seeing success when playing to 8 channel. When this issue occurs, how many channels are you attempting to play to? If you could test out a few different formats, that would be helpful.
Do you experience any playback/initialization issues when playing audio from other sources outside of Roon? No. I’m able to successfully playback from JRiver Media Center to Audiolense Convolver ASIO
From your core diagnostic, we’re seeing success when playing to 8 channel. When this issue occurs, how many channels are you attempting to play to? If you could test out a few different formats, that would be helpful. I’m unable to get to the point of playback with the Audiolense Convolver ASIO end-point as I cannot enable the device. The plan, however, is to just output 2 channels. Note: as a work around, I’ve set-up another device with convolution within Roon but this is not my preferred method.
Thanks for the update! As a next step, I would look to update the sound drivers on the Audiolense via the manufacturer’s website. A fresh reset may also help if they’re already up to date. I’d also double check that the firmware is up to date as well.
After this, I’d also refresh the RAATserver database once more:
We were able to discuss your issue on our team call today, and are curious to see if your RME device is set up/enabled as WASAPI?
Roon may be recognizing the RME as WASAPI and therefore causing the ASIO device is failing. You won’t be able to run both at the same time, unfortunately - ASIO devices essentially run in exclusive mode.
If you remove the interface from your chain, can you enable the ASIO? As a next step, test out disabling WASPI in Roon and elsewhere on the computer.
