I just bought a new iMac because my old one had a couple of components fail within the last month. The new one came with OS X Mavericks on it. Clearly, I realize this is going to cause me problems…However, the problems I’ve had don’t seem to be noted on here and I wanted to see if anyone else has had the same issues.
I am getting dropouts during ANY audio playback (iTunes, Quicktime, Cubase 7.06, WaveLab 8.03, YouTube). I didn’t expect Cubase and WaveLab to work well given they aren’t supported, but I didn’t expect to have problems with general audio playback.
The dropouts usually happen within 10-60 seconds of initializing playback and then it appears that the system is “choking” in that it doesn’t recover on its own. I can sometimes pause for a few seconds and then press play again to get audio to play for another little while, but the dropouts usually come back. I don’t see anywhere on the Mac OS that allows you to adjust a system buffer size, but that is what the problem feels like.
I’ve carefully uninstalled all MR drivers, editors, extensions and have re-installed. I did that with both MR TOOLS 1.7.4 and 1.7.5, uninstalling first, deleting any older installers and emptying the trash each time.
I’m also wondering if there are any recommended cables for the connection. I am using the Apple Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 cable and then a Belkin Firewire 800 to Firewire 400 cable that I purchased on the Apple website.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
