audio randomly drops out when playing an instrument

Post by Simblouin » Wed Jan 16, 2019 5:26 pm

Hi ! new here.

In Ableton 10, audio randomly drops out when playing an instrument. I use it during shows and it freezes and then proceed to play what was played during it froze but all the notes at the same time. I've googled it to death and can't find an answer. Help!

My setup:
Roland spd-sx going through an Iconnectivity usb interface. (midi cable not usb between the spdsx and the interface)
Ableton 10.0.5 128 sample buffer size, cpu load is 35%
MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports), 2,3 GHz Intel Core i5, 16 gig ram Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1
Uad apollo twin thunderbolt.

Thanks!

so,

went back to high sierra and bought a Motu Ultralite MK4. Still have audio problems but not the same. Audio just disconnects after 20 to 30 minutes.

From what i know, it's a known problem but nobody seems to have a solution.

...there are several threads about it including a solution/workaround (even here)...to sum it up: all macs with the t2 chip suffer from this when an usb audio interface is connected...solution atm is to use a true thunderbolt3 dock as a "bridge"...

...here you can find some dock recommendations: https://www.forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopi ... 66#p136666
