    This has been killing me for my entire day D:

    I have connected my guitar through a 'guitar link' which has an input of a standard guitar lead and two outputs. One which is a usb that goes directly into the computer, and the other is a plug for a standard speaker jack. I drew a very brief diagram of my setup and attached it as 'guitar rig.pnd'.

    I installed a driver called 'ASIO4ALL v2'. Based on a manual i got with my 'guitar link' I adjusted the settings under "File>Audio and MIDI Settings..." so that they are:
    Driver: ASIO
    Devise: Behringer USB Audio
    (status: running)
    Sample Rate: 44100

    I simply did all this and connected everything as appropriate yet GR4 doesnt seem to generate any noise.

    Aditional Info:
    - There is absolutely no responce from GR4. The tuner doesnt pick up any notes or anything. My lead isnt faulty as it work when used in an amp.
    - I can still manage to play audio files through my speakers that are plugged as an output through the 'guitar link'.

    Ive tried every other alternative and can't figure it out! :/ Im hoping its some rediculously obvious thing Ive missed but I cant find anything.

    Please Help! :(

    Ive tried all that and get up to step 8 where it says i should an input level. But my input level just sits at minimum.

    Ive made sure both the inputs and the outputs are selected in Routing and ive made sure the on the 'guitar link' its self that the volume is up and the level is set to 'high'.

    :/

    UPDATE:
    Under "ROUTING" under "AUDIO AND MIDDI SETTINGS" in the inputs section. It says that both are not connected. As so:

    OK. A couple of things you can try:

    - open up one of the TAPE DECKs and load some audio content into it, and try to play it back. Refer to the manual on how to do this if you are not familiar, but all you are doing is opening up an audio file to play back through Guitar Rig.

    If you still have no luck getting audio to play back OUT of Guitar Rig, then for some reason your computer is not "seeing" your Guitar Link. When you plug in the USB cable of the Guitar Link, does your computer give you a little pop up in the bottom right hand corner telling you that it has found your USB device? If your computer recognizes the Guitar Link, then there must be some confusion within the computer as to the assignment of audio.

    Here is an interesting thread I found:

    http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?t=87173

    It suggests downloading the latest ASIO4ALL drivers for the Guitar Link, and also going into your computer's Device Manager and Disabling the built-in audio card that comes with your computer. ( I do this every time I use Guitar Rig, just to avoid the possibility of confusion with audio addressing). Make sure you "disable" and not "uninstall" the audio device. (see attached image) If you want to go back and use your computer's internal sound card at some point, just "enable" it in the Device Manager.

    It also suggests trying different USB ports. You'll want to make sure that the USB port is supplying enough power to the Guitar Link for the thing to work, so if you have an ACTIVELY POWERED (meaning plugged into the wall) USB hub kicking around, you may want to use it.
