"audio driver removed", possessed clock settings

Hello there.

I’ve 2 recurring problems while running Cubase 6.5 with a Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 DSP.

  1. I get the “Saffire has been removed” dialogue in the middle of a session.
  • does not seem to be a specific trigger event.
  • tried buffer settings at 256, 384 and 512, all with the same result.
  • VST connections get reset at this point, sometimes requiring a Cubase restart to get fixed
  1. The Clock source setting changes on its own from “Internal” to “SPDIF/Opt Out”

Why do these things happen, and what can I do to have a setup?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Here are my specs:

mid 2009 MBP
2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB ram
Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 DSP
iPhone and iPad running Cubase iC

Also, running OS X 10.7.5.
