Hi guys, I just got my Focusrite Sapphire Pro 40 yesterday after I sold my MOTU Traveler MK3 and I'm extremely pleased with it and have already recorded 5 live concerts.
In one the files, I heard a pop/click near the beginning. Now I realize this is a live situation so the sound might have easily been caused by the audience, but I'm not 100% sure. Here's the catch, I have my Zoom H4N routed to one of the Focusrite's outputs, as a backup. Technically it's a zero-latency monitoring mix so no computer is involved between the two, but on the track from the Zoom, the identical click was there as well.
So here's my question, since most pop/clicks occur due to Firewire or latency issues, does that mean it should not happen on devices routed through zero-latency monitoring devices? So in my case, since the noise was on both the computer and the Zoom, does that mean it's actually a noise in the room itself?
Hope this makes sense, I'm running on 4 hours of sleep each day for the past 3 days. Thanks guys.
The zero latency monitoring gets processed on a chip inside the converter, so the noise could well have been produced by the converter and then transmitted to the recorder - or it could just be a noise in the room - what's the big deal either way?
