I'm new to Studio One and I'm trying to figure out how to get my Blue Snowball mic to work with the program. I'm running Windows 8.1 and I looked for a driver for the Snowball mic, but there are no drivers. It seems to work okay in other audio apps like Audacity.
When I launch Studio One (with the mic connected) I get the following message:
The audio device or generic USB device has failed to start correctly before. Do you want to try it again? (Yes or No)
When I click yes I get:
The audio device for generic USB device could not be initialized. Please check your hardware configuration and try again. (Retry or Cancel)
Clicking yes or retry gets me the same messages.
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or what I should try?

Windows 8 and Windows 7 Setup Procedure
I am experiencing the same issue and have repeated the suggested solution multiple times. I have also confirmed that the mic is set as the default recording device and the computer is able to register the audio frequency, While it does not work in Studio One free version it works fine in audacity. i checked the settings in studio one and noticed the windows audio is enabled but not the generic USB input, the windows audio identifies the blue mic as the recording device as well.
Yep, does not work. After going back and forth with Presonus support on the issue they "claim" it's a Blue Mic problem, in other words they're not going to resolve the issue in studio one even though the mic works in every other audio program I have, Audacity, Ableton Live and even Skype.
So...you can forget getting help from either Blue Mics or Presonus.
susannaq wroteThanks for the info. Glad all I wasted was the time spent downloading the test version. I just tried to get the Blue Mic to work with Studio One and it still doesn't (using Windows10 - March 2016).
I'd be curious as I've gotten that mic to work (I work with lots of VO/Narration users, and many have that mic.)
IF you still care, find me on FB and send me a message. (I'm easy to find on FB due to the funny spelling, see my autosig below.) We'll do a quick video chat so I can see your screen. I suspect we can fix it in 5 min or less after we are connected.
My first guess is it's a sampling rate miss-match. If those are off, it won't work.

This applies to any USB mic plus USB interface. Only one USB device at a time can be used with Windows.I have heard of a work around using ASIO4ALL but use at your own risk.
