If I install Mountain Lion on my Macbook Pro I7 (late 2011) will I be able to record audio without clicks?

You might but make sure you have a way back if it doesn't work right.

I admit I'm not really good with Macs like I am Windows systems but if you're interested I'd be happy to give it a shot.

Macs are easy. Don't run stuff in the background. Install fresh. Turn off wifi. Turn off built in audio while you record. Not too much that can be off kilter. Making sure the stuff outside the Mac is set up properly is the same as a PC.

Thanks for that !

Must admit Im pretty cheesed off, I ve got a Macbook Pro 17 (late 2011), iMac I5 (2010) , Macbook Duo Core (200 & Mac Mini............ ALL record with clicks!!
I m informed that there are issues which Presonus are aware with the I7 however they tell me all the other should work! They have yet to tell me what I need to do to get them to work!!! As I can't really see what I can do other than switch off wifi?
I have discovered that if I use Pro Logic I get more clicks and terrible latency, so have started using S1 zero latency but still get clicks no matter what sample rate i use.

Because I like the product Im looking at buying a PC laptop so that I can use the vsl1818 in full, just a shame that Presonus don't have the same comitment to there customers that we have to there products.
Just hoping that I don't end up with clicking on a PC Laptop.

FYI ..........I also have a 16.4.2 Studiolive which records on ALL of the above Mac s without issue, only problems I have had with them (I have had 4 since Oct 2011) is power supply s!!!

Cheers

Have you got a tech support request in the system? They've got even more knowledge than I do.

Yes, I just registered the vsl1818 then submitted a tech support request, after I submitted the request was told I wasn't logged on, (which i was) then got an e-mail back asking me to verify my request, by submitting my password which I did. The system thanked me for verifying the request. I then went on to "check your existing requests" from there did a circuits of logging on, logging on, logging on etc etc.................. how hard do Presonus make it to get help !!!!!
I assume my request is in the system, as i can't get past the logging on stage to confirm!!!
Will see if I get a response.

Wow, I gave it a month before installing Mountain Lion so it hadn't even occured to me that there could possibly still be issues with software and drivers....

This is beyond bullshit!

My Audiobox is as good as a doorstop until there's a fix? Presumably there are issues with the Studiolive too? That'd be just perfect as I've big gigs all weekend... one of which the drummer, I believe, works with Presonus distibution in scandinavian countries. The same guy was present at my gig where the StudioLive died repeatedly, stopping the show completely! He's gonna be presonus biggest fan from here on in I'm sure!
