Delta 1010 - Drivers for Windows 10

I recently purchased a new Dell 3847 Inspiron computer to use with the new release of Cakewalks flagship product Sonar. First the expansion slot available turns out to be a graphics slot. I can use a adaptor to overcome this problem but I notice that M audio at this time does not support Windows 10. Is M audio looking at releasing a driver for the Delta 1010 for Windows 10? It would be a total waste of money to have purchased a high end input from a trusted company like M-audio only to have them turn around and abandon their customer base. Why if this is the case would I feel comfortable buying products from them in the future? I do not want to have a room full of working electronics that I can no longer use because the company no longer supports them.

  • Hi Brian,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Delta 1010 will not be supported for use on Windows 10. The product has been discontinued for several years now and has not been updated since Windows 7.

    Some customers have had success with the last available drivers for Windows 7, which you can download here and test at your discretion:

    • im in the same boat. What is the alternative?? please
    • Since AVID have taken over from M-Audio, they have dropped windows 10 support just like many other useless companies. It does not take long to re-write drivers for windows 10. Although the drivers do work to a certain extent, 44.1 is only available. You can't even run them in compatibility mode on windows 10. I bought a Fuji Finepix camera back in 2003 and they have updated their software for windows 10. Great company. Avid seem to be a law unto themselves. I have never liked their products and never will. So, thank you Avid for adopting a 'GOD' complex like many others; Apple did the same, no drivers for my Unitor 8 for P.C. Windows XP being the last ones.

  • Hi Corey

    The Delta 1010 64-bit driver is crashing Windows 7 Pro here. I would like to try the 32-bit driver (I am still using 32-bit apps), but the 6.0.8 version you have here listed as 32-bit installs as a 64-bit driver. Do you have the correct link please?

    Thanks from Jonathan

  • The 6.0.8 driver is designed for both 32 and 64 bit systems. There are not separate 32 and 64 bit driver installers. If you are having trouble with the card, please test the card in a different computer.

    If you continue to have trouble with this on a different system, the card may require service. Warranty and non-warranty claims are not handled here on the forum but I can point you in the right direction. Here are a couple of options that you could choose from:

    • Submit a Warranty or Service Inquiry with our Technical Support team by logging onto the M-Audio Support Page. Select Warranty or Service Inquiry from the drop down menu. This will not require a support code.

    or

    • For faster support, call or email your nearest Support Office or International Distributor. Select your country to find the nearest office.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks Corey. The card is absolutely fine. FYI - and I would be interested in and appreciate your response - I have the LT running alongside the 1010, and mainly use Cubase for recording (also use ProTools, Ableton, Sound Forge). Using the Win7x64 driver, applications crash very frequently (with or without the LT inserted to MOBO), but they are capable of utilising all the inputs and outputs.

    I tried installing the Vistax64 driver. Worked a treat. At first. It doesn't crash; Apps can utilise all the 1010 ins and outs, but then when I reinserted the LT card alongside the 1010, Apps could no longer utilise ANY of them, as they are all showing "unmapped". Pretty weird huh...

    I am considering getting a 2nd hand Delta 1010 to replace the LT until such time as I can afford to upgrade to a really good and up to date sound card. But as mentioned, very interested in your feedback on these points to see if we can get anywhere in the meantime :o)

    I absolutely love the Delta 1010 and not looking forward to the day when I will be replacing it. Thanks again for continued support of this superb legacy product!!

  • Here is something I am exploring while attempting to resolve this issue. Nowhere in the manual, or online, have I been able to find out what "multichannel" and "monitor" are in the Windows Recording Devices menu. The system has not yet crashed when they are disabled. What are they for? (see attached image thanks)

    • Hi Jonathan,

      The Monitor input is a combined or mixed down signal from all of the inputs out of the monitor mixer, mainly used if you wanted to combine the physical inputs with software returns. If disabling this keeps it from crashing, maybe there's some sort of feedback loop happening if Cubase is listening to this input?

      I'm not sure what exactly the Multichannel input is but It's likely a virtual port similar to Monitor. If it's working ok with these disabled, I would leave that for now if it works for your purposes.

      Also, make sure that you are syncing the two Delta units together via S/PDIF or Wordclock and dedicate one as the master.

      Hope this helps!

  • That's great Corey. To know that your fantastic support is available here online gives me extra confidence for any future M-Audio purchases. I will be linking the two by SPDIF!! Thanks for that tip...

    OK, so I have another update for you, partly for your interest and partly to see what you have to say. I started getting BSOD again even with the Vista driver, just not as frequently. So in the end I have reinstalled Windows from scratch and everything seems to be fine for the most part now. No more BSOD errors. I have not identified exactly where the fault was coming from.

    There are a couple of things that I have noticed that are somewhat annoying but not major major issues. Throughout the reinstall process I was testing between each step. When I installed the M-Audio Delta 1010 everything was still perfect with the Win7 driver (no more Vista driver!!). Since adding the LT into the Motherboard, I get random click and pops on the left channel during playback, fairly frequently, but not so loud. Fortunately these do not get recorded and only affect playback.

    The other thing that happens is in the control panel. The 1010LT doesn't recall changes I make/load/save to the input levels. The 1010 levels are fixed and cannot be changed. If I save a "des" file and load it up, that doesn't make a difference; all the levels seem to default to maximum, which is too much. If you had any tips here that would be fantastic, as I have to change them all manually every single time I load up the control panel.

    In the meantime I am going to purchase another 1010 to replace the LT, mostly as a curiosity to see if this fixes those problems. And I am considering replacing them both with your M-Track Eight at some point in the future. In the meantime, thanks for your tips and hoping for just a couple more :)
    • I'm glad I can help out :)

      The clicks/pops on playback could easily be related to not having the two units synced together. Have you tried the sync via S/PDIF yet? If not, try this first and let me know how that goes.

      When you are referring to the input levels, you are referring to the Hardware Settings page in the control panel, correct? I don't believe these are going to be saved and recalled with the other settings and if you are just using line levels, this shouldn't really be necessary. If the signal is too hot, you may just want to turn the operating line level to "Consumer" (-4dB) or -10dBV, especially if you are using an unbalanced connection from whatever you are connecting to the inputs. If you're running a balanced output into the Delta, set the level to +4dBu. As long as the input level matches the output level of your gear, this should take the input level down to a reasonable volume as long as it's not coming out too hot from your other gear.

      I hope this helps!

  • My Delta 1010LT was working fine in Windows 10 until it did an update. Now when trying to record in Sound Forge I get an error:
    Can't Open waveform input device ...
    (Undefined external error.)
    Change driver bit resolution to 16 Bit or switch driver system to WDM compatible in system options.

    How do I look at the WDM settings?

  • I will now confess that the v6.08 for windows 7 can be installed directly into Windows 10 Pro without compatibility being ticked for windows 7. There will not be a windows 11 according to Microsoft, only upgrades to windows 10, which at the moment, is v1909. You must repair the M-AUDIO drivers in control panel, under 'programmes and features'. This will set them straight again. Good luck everyone.
