Nuendo has been a remarkably solid platform for me since it started, and I’ve seldom had cause to doubt it’s ability to record cleanly. Very occasionally, I get a glitch in a recorded file - close examination shows that the waveform has a step in it, as if a few samples have been missed.
I mean very occasionally.
In the past I always put it down to a clocking error (several mic preamps with ADCs wordclocked together) however recently I have been using 2x Focusrite 428s recorded via Fireface 800 analogue inputs.
I had 2 such dropouts on Sunday. Both occurred at the end of a long day’s recording - backing vocal parts - and the projects were fairly busy by then. Also, I was running at fairly low latency because I’d earlier been recording MIDI piano along with the band. The N5 CPU meter was running at about 40-50%. I never heard any spikes at the time of recording, just these dropouts in 2 places on BV files.
I just noticed that Audio Priority is set to Normal - I’ve reset it to Boost. The manual suggests this only arbitrates between audio and MIDI in Nuendo, so with only one MIDI track palying at the time it seems unlikely this would cause a problem.
Any ideas please?
