    Media Composer 8 doesn't recognise my Avid Fast Track Duo Hardware

    Hi,

         I recently upgraded to Media Composer 8 and the system will no longer let me switch to monitoring my Avid Fast Track Duo....so, I can't output to my speakers.  I made sure my system was seeing the hardware and I can play fine from the mac itself.  It's just when I go to the "Audio Project" Hardware tab, I can't change anything.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I reset deleted Avid's settings, but that didn't work.  Any ideas of what could be going on?

    Ok....this is weird...  Since Avid couldn't recognise my Avid Fast Track Duo sound card and I'm working on my macbook pro, I decided I had to turn on my Boom audio boosting software to properly hear the footage.  So, I turned up the volume on Boom and all of a sudden, the sound started playing on the speakers!  I then when to the Audio Project Hardware tab and saw that I still couldn't make any changes to the setup - no Avid Fast Track Duo listed.  I then turned off Boom and the sound was still coming out of the speakers.  Something weird is going on.  Could this potentially be some sort of Media Composer 8 bug?
