I just bought 27 inch iMac, then maxed it out to 3.4 Ghz i7 processor, 20 GB RAM, and added a SSD. Before this I was using a MacBook Pro 2.2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB RAM.
I was sure that by upgrading I would be finally done with any spike issues that I’ve had in the past. However to my dismay, I’m still having them. My Activity Meter shows that my Disk is using 0% power (probably because it’s an SSD), which is amazing; and my ASIO meter is hovering at 3% usage. However every 30 seconds it spikes to 100% overload for a split second - which destroys the take. I watched the Activity Meter but couldn’t seem to figure out how it was being caused.
EDIT: I’m also getting kernal errors pretty often. Is there any way for me to track down what’s going on?
Any ideas on what is causing this?
