I am on a Macbook Pro: Processor:
2 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory:
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics:
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB Software:
OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)
I am recording using Rode NT1, Apogee Duet Firewire, Ableton Live 8.3.4
My Apogee creates random crackling sounds while recording, and it does not only affect the monitor, but also records that artifact. It is impossible to use the card for recording. I looked around the internet, disabled all other apps, changed buffer size, sample rate, etc. I did everything I could but to no avail. Here is a zoomed in image of an example artifact.
It is that spike right around the middle of the image.
If anyone has any idea about this problem I would be very happy. It has really stopped all our progress.
Thanks in advance.
