I have a strange thing happening since updating to El Capitan. Both on N7 and now on N8.
Before N8 I rolled back to Yosemite and everything worked fine, so no issues until now.
I am now on Sierra and N8 and the problem is back.
When mixing a movie or just playing back a longer stretch at a time sometimes the performance meter starts peaking all of a sudden and the transport freezes including audio drops (stutters and complete silence) for about 2-3 seconds. It eventually returns to normal after that. But sometimes I have to reset the Sound Interface. That occurs sometimes after 20 minutes, sometimes every hour and sometimes after 3 minutes playing into the session. Never at the same position and completely random as of what I know.
What I have tried:
- Higher Sample Buffer Size
- Watching the CPU meter. While freezing no changes on CPU usage
- App Nap disabled
- Switched WCLK Clocking to Internal
- Differens Interface (second Steinberg MR816x)
- Different settings with Asio Guard etc.
- Different File Sources (normally work from a server, but tried to copy locally)
My specs are:
Mac OS 10.12.5 Sierra
Mac Pro 5,1 (Mid 2010)
16 GB Ram
ATI Radeon HD 5770
Blackmagic Decklink HD Extreme 3D+
Avid Artist Transport
It does not stress me when I am doing work alone, but it is really not acceptable when doing voice overs or mixing with clients.
Has anyone heard of this issue?
I am clueless…
And about to roll back to Yosemite and N7 again
