  • Hey mate! You're not doing anything wrong. I've got the same issue. The software developers responsible for the driver for this device clearly do not know how and why drivers need to be signed.

    In short, when a Company creates a Software product, it has to use a digital certificate, granted by a third party Certificate Authority to ensure a Customer that this Software is indeed provided by this Company and not SomeOtherCompany or a hacker pretending to be the Company to deliver a harmful software to you. Certificates are granted for no longer than 2 years usually and then need to be renewed. It looks like Soundcraft did not pay attention this time and the cert used to sign the driver is outdated, rendering this mixer pretty much useless for use with PC.

    You can disable driver certificate check deep in your computer settings (I've got through the process, and it is kinda involved, you'll have to have access to your BitLocker codes in your Microsoft account before you start) - it worked for me after I disabled the certificate check, but just today I found that it doesn't work again Soundcraft shows "not connected" so not the ideal solution, especially keeping in mind that you put your computer under risk disabling a security feature.

    So I'd suggest returning the device and getting another brand. Quite a shame, because the device itself is pretty neat (apart from not having a fcking 20 cent spent on a power button, doh!)

    It's been 15 days since you posted, and it doesn't seem like there is an updated binary yet... Is there a good way to flag down the dev team to recompile their drivers with a new signature?

    Hi, I had the same issue and I was able to solve it by disabling signed driver enforcement in windows 10. A quick google search will show you the steps to do so. I hope this helps.

    I have considered doing that, but it is definitely NOT a good option. That is disabling one of the most important security settings on a Windows system.

    Hi, disabling signed driver is only temporary. You disable this function, install the unsigned driver, and after a restart, your windows 10 will go back to enable signed driver, so you'll be protected again. I am recommending this option because it worked for me. Good luck!
