Yeah, it is the projectmix, not the computer. M-audio says that this is NORMAL!!!!???

Bullcrap. Anyway, I understand they are working on a new driver for it that is supposed to address this garbage popping everytime the firewire bus resets, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Are you using M-powered PT? It doesn't do it nearly as much with the core audio apps, IE live and cubase.

I feel your pain,
Matt

PS Mine doesn't pop loud enough to blow a tweeter, though.

You are not alone. Believe me. I have to always turn on my Project Mix first and wait for it to fully initialize before I dare turn my monitors on. Yes, it's annoying and M-Audio tech support seem to brush it off as a minor irration. Dumb.
