Audio cuts completely.

Post by prizzle9 » Fri Nov 18, 2011 5:21 pm

Hi there.

Im having a problem where every now and then the audio drop outs completely (not glitches) & will only return if i restart Lives audio engine. It only happens after pressing play & never drops out while Ableton is playing, the meters in Ableton show output but there is no sound. Ableton is the only app that causes this although all apps are silent. I've recently got a new iMac which came with Lion & thought I'd stick with it, I did have this problem on my previous Mac Pro with Snow Leopard installed but not as often. I can't remember what the cause was, maybe a plugin? Although no particular plug appears to be the problem.

My setup is.....

iMac 2011 3.4ghz i7 (8GB Ram), Lynx Aurora 8 LT/FW, Live 8.2.6 & OSX Lion 10.7.2.

Thanks for your time, best.....

Pat.
