Re: Mac, Audiofire 12, Ableton Input crackles.....

For a lark I bought a used Presonus Firestudio Project. Installed the latest driver and wow...... it is far cleaner buffer wise. Easily getting 64 sample buffer at 80% CPU and 32 at 60% CPU. Right...! That doesn't bode well. Can I ask do you use the aggregate audio driver with the AF12 at all? I ge...

Also really curious if the OP got his single AF12 running smoothly? Not quite there yet. Marcel at Echo support has been a great help. He pointed me to a newer (yet unreleased) V 5.8 driver. I thought this was helping. But, much like dafragsta, changing the buffer up or down seems like a crap shoot...
