Hey all, I just did some drum tracking with a band last night and got some really bad clicks and pops that sounded like digital errors in pro tools. The system is brand new and that's the first recording that I've done on it, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas?
My setup is:
MacBook Pro, 2.4GHz with 4GB RAM running OS X 10.5
Recording media is via firewire 800
Behringer ADA8000 connected to the 2626 via ADAT, sync'd by word clock (2626 as master)
Recording at 48KHz, 24-bit.
I've just opened PT and am recording 16 tracks as I type this (EDIT: no mics or other gear connected) at home (different location to last night). So far 20 mins has passed with no errors and I'm using all the same gear and cables as last night.
I'm wondering has anyone else has problems like this before? Firewire cables, word clock problems, a reliable power source? I had a look at this thread: m-audio profire - clicks problem solved
Sounds like a similar problem, except now everything is working without changing anything except my location. As more of a preventative measure to make sure this doesn't happen again, I'm wondering if anyone has ideas?
