The following procedure installs the Orpheus ASIO and WDM drivers, and the Orpheus Control Panel applet, on your Windows PC. You must have Windows XP, Vista (32-bit) or later, and a spare FireWire 400 (IEEE1394A) port.
|•||Connect your Orpheus to the mains supply with the power-cord provided. DO NOT connect it to the PC yet.|
|•||Insert the installation disc into a DVD-ROM drive on your PC.|
|•||If the PC is set to 'Autoplay' , installation will begin automatically, otherwise double-click on the "setup.exe" icon in the root folder of the disc.|
|•||A welcome screen warns you to shut down other applications prior to installation. Do so and click 'Next':|
|•||You will be asked to agree to the Orpheus EULA - if you agree, click 'Yes':|
|•||Choose the installation folder location by clicking 'Browse', if required, or else use the default (recommended); click 'Next':|
|•||Installation will then proceed:|
|•||Orpheus' drivers are have not been submitted for Windows Logo testing, and so warnings of this will be issued during installation. Select 'Continue anyway' when these occur:|
|•||During installation, you will be prompted to connect the Orpheus to the FireWire port of the PC. Do so, then click 'Next':|
The Orpheus device's ports should now be visible to Windows and any applications as both ASIO and WDM audio ports, and a bidirectional MIDI port. Note that only the first two ADAT ports (if enabled by the Orpheus Control Panel applet) are visible in the WDM case.
