I have been using an Mbox Pro 2 for a few years and decided to upgrade this Christmas to a "Focusrite Saffire Pro 40". Its an awesome interface and so far I love it... With the exception of the crackling I get when working on advanced tracks and the skipping every now and then even when I'm not doing anything. I have done a bunch of research into optimizing my computer and firewire card compatibility. I eventually found this bit of software: http://www.focusrite.com/answerbase/...ments/OHCI.zip
But instead of saying "Compatible, no known issues" or anything else that is obvious it says "This controller has not been qualified yet".
So what do you think guys?
Do I need a new firewire card? Or is it my brain that is making the clicking sounds. Ether way here is my firewire card info:
Vendor : (104C) Texas Instruments
Chipset: (8020) TSB12LV26
Status : Active
Max 1394 Speed Capability: S400
Support: This controller has not been qualified yet.
P.S. my card is really old, i lifted it from a computer they were throwing away at work a few years ago.
