I have been using an Audio Technica AT2025 attached to a PreSonus AudioBox iTwo for several years now. I have recently (last 12 months) been running into an issue where my microphone will not pick up audio unless I unplug and replug the USB-B cable into the box. It will show up in the Windows sound manager as my default device, but will not show any audio going into it. No software (such as OBS or Audactiy) will not pick up the audio either.

I am fairly techincal and have tried all sorts of troubleshooting but it does not seem to work. I am currently using the Universal Control for software to make the box work (provided from the PreSonus website)

I just reset my PC to see if that would fix the issue, but it has not. I have also looked on the website for an answer but have not found one.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

For technical specs (though I am not sure any of it matters);

OS: Windows 10

CPU: Ryzen 1700 (OC 4.0ghz)


RAM: 128GB (4x32) DDR4 3200MHZ

Hi, i solved it installing old drivers. They're on the official site, check if that helps.

Works with Universal Control v2.6.
Does not work with latest Universal Control v3.4.0.61835

This has been going on for at least a year and is almost certainly driver related, please look into it.

Edit: I was wrong, proves problematic after restart. Going to try another USB port or enable EuP/ErP Ready in bios.

Later Edit: Solved in my case by plugging into another USB port.
