How do I get AKAI professional interface to record? Or will it even work with bitwig?

What Akai interface exactly are you using?

We have a few Akai devices here (e.g. the EIE Pro) and they usually work nicely. What operating system (and version) are you using?

Using the EIE PRo. Bitwig recognizes the device in the Audio input preference tab. But I have been unable to get any signal of device.

To record any MIDI controls you have to 'Arm' the track by clicking the Record icon on the track that receives the commands.

Track is "armed" when i attempt to record. If I am using internal sounds I have no problems recording. When I try to use external input is when the problem occurs I have tried also to use my Spark LE as a source. I get a signal that I can see in the Bitwig track meter and can also hear thru the monitor but when i click record it does not record the input. When using the Akai audio interface as a source i get no signal at all even though Bitwig is recognizing the device. Have tried changing sample rates and buffering but get no result. My system is HP15 running Windows 8..

Add a screenshot of the Inspector when the Track you want to Record is selected and armed.
