* To prevent audio feedback loops or double monitoring, turn off monitoring in your application,
or set things so ASIO Direct Monitoring is used.
* The Fantom-G does not support ASIO Direct Monitoring. Support is emulated for your convenience.
* If you’re using the Fantom-G with ASIO, we recommend that you make settings in your application so that the Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth is not used. (This is in order to decrease the
processor load, and for convenience in changing the buffer size of the driver.)

Can’t install the driver
• Did you log on to Windows with the appropriate user privileges?
You must log on to Windows as a user whose account type is Administrator.
Can’t select/use the Fantom-G device
• Is the driver correctly installed?
If you’re unable to use the Fantom-G even though the driver was installed, it is possible that the driver was not installed correctly.
Re-install the driver following the correct procedure.
• Is the Fantom-G’s MIDI/WAVE device name displayed?
If you’re using Windows and the device name is not displayed, close all applications that are using the Fantom-G, turn off the
Fantom-G’s power, then turn it back on again.
If this does not solve the problem, install the driver once again.
• Could your computer have entered Sleep or Standby (Suspend) mode while the Fantom-G was powered up and connected?
If the Fantom-G does not operate correctly after your computer returns from Sleep or Standby (Suspend) mode, close all the
software you’re using, and then turn the Fantom-G’s power off, then on again.
• While using the Fantom-G, could you have disconnected and reconnected the USB cable or switched
the Fantom-G’s power off, then on again?
If you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable or cycle the power to the Fantom-G during use, it may stop operating correctly. In
this case, close all the software you’re using, and then turn the Fantom-G’s power off, then on again.
• On some computers, if Windows is started up when the Fantom-G is already connected, the driver
might not be loaded correctly, making it impossible to use the Fantom G via USB.
In this case, turn on the Fantom-G’s power after Windows has started up, or connect it after Windows has started up.
A number such as “2-” is now displayed at the beginning of the device name
• Could you have connected the Fantom-G to a different USB port?
If you connect the Fantom-G to a different USB port, the operating system may automatically add a number to the beginning of
the device name. This should not be a cause for concern when using the Fantom-G.
Turn on the Fantom-G’s power.
1. Turn on the Fantom-G’s POWER switch.
This completes the connections between the Fantom-G and your Mac.
