I just noticed that problem after having the Presonus Firestudio Project for a few years now. The playback would sound just fine, then all of a sudden it would turn very crackly and distorted. If I restart the interface, it is fine but slowly progresses to the distorted sound quality again. I don't think this is an issue of matching sample rates because it is a different type of distortion. Could it be that my interface is just dying?

Or your computer. Or your FireWire cable. The cable is easiest to test so I'd try that first...

I just wanted to say that I have been trying to trouble shoot this issue as well for a long time as well. I have owned my Firestudio mobile for a long time, and I have had numerous issues.

While I still have issues with dropouts & latency, I found that as a Win 7 user, moving to the legacy driver from my default driver seemed to help in the issue of the eventual switch to the distorted sound. See:

Though in practice I keep my sessions using the Firestudio mobile short, so perhaps I am just avoiding the problem.

Hey spitfire27

I have that mobile fire studion only not the project
I know this only from when my computer has been on to long - almost seems like the FW card is backed up and pops
out the buffer in a burst... CRACK BOOM lol
At least here heheh happens more frequent from when it starts.. like after a day or 2 it starts
It helps some to change the buffer size when it happens - BUT doesn't make it go away
Only thing is rebooting for me at least


Edit: So for me heheh it's a FW card issue in that regard - can't deliver the buffer fast enough and pops it out one in a while
then screws up after
