Did you check the mixer?

If you previously connected the 1818VSL to a Mac or Windows box those
save settings on the device replacing the defaults after power-up. Some
people who reported that mute-all and external Clock-source are set by
default for whatever reason.

Also the new firmware has some issues. There was someone on #ardour
recently mentioning that simply using the factory default firmware
(downgrade) fixed various 1818VSL things.


PS. I never connected the 1818VSL here to anything but Linux and it work
great like on the 1st day (3 or 4 years ago now)
