Hey guys, so here we go,

Windows 10, awesome!!!!!

Audio drivers not ready yet...not so awesome.

What are your experiences?

I know some have had a smooth transistion. Not me unfortunately. So I thought I'd start this thread for info, awareness and support.

I have two issues:

Problem 1
My trusty 12 year old Edirol (Roland) UA-25 doesn't work. It was worling in Win 8.1. At the point it says connect the device it hangs on the dialogue box. I see people online have had the same issues with all Edirol products, even installing in Win 8.1 compatibility mode.

I eventually found this: www.roland.com/support/support_news/250010
"At present, the drivers compatible with Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 8/8.1 that are available from Roland's website do not support Windows 10."

So I (and other Eidrol owners) have to wait and maybe never have Windows 10 drivers. (before you ask, I can't be bothered to reverse the Win 10 upgrade!)

Problem 2
Novation X-Station
X-Station gets picked up by the Operating System. Cool!
Inputs are not working. Not so cool :/

Novation has a list of compatible devices. The X-Station is not on the list. Damn it !
global.novationmusic.com/answerbase/windows-10-compatibility

There is nothing on the X-Station Windows 'PC Specific' page ('Articles that specifically relate to the X Stations use in Windows.')
global.novationmusic.com/answerbase/category/pc-specific

So, leave your experience, info, tips and advice below!

Haven't posted much of late. Really busy. But I did see this and I have had an issue as well with my focusrite scarlett 8i6. The sound started playing REALLY slow and then one day I couldn't even play a test tone. Windows 10 has introduced new ways that they are handling audio. I believe that this is what is causing the issue ultimately but to resolve it with mine I uninstalled all the drivers and then deleted all folders that the drivers left in personal settings and such. Unplugged the device. Reinstalled the drivers as admin (right click and choose run as admin). Restart. Plugged in the device when everything came back up. It now works. Now this DID take me a day or 2 so it's possible that in that time it was actually a problem with microsoft and they fixed it while I was working on it. Then reinstalling would have meant nothing. But there you have it. Hope you get it fixed soon. Windows 10 really is good they just need to work through the initial bug fixes. Good luck.

So I found a post online, where Roland guys tweeted a UA-25/Win 10 user to say that head office in Japan aren't planning on bringing out drivers for Win 10. Let's hope they change their mind or someone else develops the drivers instead! Otherwise it is time to buy a new soundcard!

if you have to buy a new sound card, make sure you go to the forums of your old card support area and make it clear you will not be buying your new card from them.
Probably does little to help except make you feel a little better.
Had that issue with an m-audio 1814 which is a cracking card just no up to date drivers for windows 7 and later osx
