Hi there

I just installed Studio One 5 Prime to test the software on Windows 10 on a Dell XPS 9300 core i7 Icelake - I a newbie at DAW and taking my first steps. I have encountered issues as I get the message that I have a mismatch in sampling rates between my song and my system sound card (Windows sound card). Studio One shows Windows at 44.1 kHz, however my audio device (speakers of laptop) are at 48kHz, as is the test song I did. I cannot change the device settings to 44.1 kHz, but I don't understand in the first place why Studio One is saying it is 44kHz if it is actually 48kHz. I don't hear any sound (I have created a instrument track and included the Presonus Presence synth with a view notes just to test).

Please advise - thanks!!!

Update: Solved the sound issue - total noob mistake: forgot to add a preset instrument to the Presence synth. So sound OK, but still wondering about the difference in sampling rates being shown. :)
