Has anyone ever seen this...

Hi guys & gals,

I’m recording all hunky-dory like to Cubase LE 5 through my Zoom R24, happy.

All of a sudden on the third take there’s a massive delay and the wave is waaay off the metronome.

I go into the system midi window and change the drop down menu from 96kHz to 44.1kHz then back again.

I go back into Cubase where I’m told the sample rate has changed, twice.

I ok everything (without converting or moving any tracks).

The system then records fine again for a few takes.

Than it happens again.

It’s an annoying inconvenience more than anything, but I’d love to know why the hell it’s happening. I’m on a fairly new 2.26 Ghz Macbook Pro, Running the last version of Snow Leopard, 4 GB of RAM, Recording to a newly formatted Firewire External harddrive. I just don’t get it.

It’s not like it’s down to latency, because like I say, sometimes it’s fine.
I was wondering if anyone had experienced similar and had any systemic suggestions.


Vagrant: Click “Constrain Delay Compensation” on your tool bar, top left.
See if this helps.

Yea this has happened a bunch of times to me with Cubase Le4
and recently with Cubase 6. Clicking "Constrain Delay Compensation
saved the day for me.

If this doesn’t work maybe a Driver problem ? :question: or :question:

Jack :smiley: :smiley:

Cheers man, I’ll give that a go today.
It certainly could be the driver, it’s Zoom so a little dubious. Lots of complaints about it online, just nothing like my issue.

Thanks for the reply, your a true gent.
