I’ve had this problem for quite some time now, and no one, including the technicians at ADK computers (the company that built my pc) can figure it out. I’m using cubase 6.0.5 with the MR816csx, and “internal” clock.
I’ve done everything possible to try and stop these random digital “glitches”, or “hick ups” that happen no matter whether I’m tracking or mixing. It definitely isn’t a cpu issue, as I can be registering only around 20-30% load and out of no where the project will simply “skip”, if you know what I mean. I’m quite sure it isn’t a ram issue either as I just maxed out my mother board to 8 gigs. I know that’s not a lot, but certainly enough to handle my projects.
I also recently upgraded to a new UAD-2 card, upgraded from XP pro to Windows 7 pro (well, the guys at ADK computers did most of the work remotely), all firmware, drivers, mother board bios, etc. are up to date, and I STILL get the “glitches” ever so often.
The main tech at ADK stated that it wasn’t a video card issue, and that it sounded like it was a MR816 firmware issue,… that I had to make sure that I had the “Legacy” drivers. I checked and I do indeed have those.
This has been going on for months and months, probably close to a year or more. It isn’t bad enough to stop me from working, but I’m so big time sick of it! I haven’t added anything to my set up that could possibly cause this,… at least that I’m aware of.
The only thing for sure I can say is that when the “glitches” start, and become more and more “consistent”, I can either LOWER or RAISE the buffer in Cubase, and the problem goes away,… at least for a while. This is what’s so strange to me,… the fact that I can lower the buffer and the “glitches” temporarily stop. I would think that lowering the buffer should make it worse?
Could someone PLEASE help me figure this out?
