Audio Activity constantly peaking with audio interface


I’m having a problem with Nuendo 6 where every time I plug in an external audio interface the bar for audio activity is constantly clipping and staying red. I don’t really know how to explain it so i’ve uploaded an image showing what happens.

I’ve tried a Lexicon Omega and a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 which both work fine as the sound output for my Mac but as soon as I set the ASIO to be one of these in Nuendo I get this constant peaking and crazy distortion whenever I try to play/listen to anything. Also setting the ASIO to built in output works fine.

Is there any way of stopping this, I read somewhere that it could be a latency issue but i’m not sure how to change it since i’m fairly new to the software and only using the trial version.

Thanks in advance for any advice


Just realised that the CoreAudio2ASIO patch fixing the problem…

Sorry for wasting anyones time!
