FireStudio Mobile & FireStudio Project » Logic X recording latency » Go to message
It isn't, though - one take will be fine, the next take will be consistently delayed by half a second, with absolutely no change in preferences.

I can get a few more non-delayed takes by going into Universal Control and setting the device to "Safe Mode" then back to "Low Latency" but that only lasts for so long. And of course I don't know if a take will have been delayed until after I finish recording it, and usually that happens on my good takes so I end up just manually realigning it to the timeline like it's 1997. Very frustrating.

It never did this on Logic 9 or earlier, but it's possible that there's a driver-level change that's at fault too.

Nope, I always install OS updates as soon as they become available and I'm still having this problem. But only in QuickTime Player, for some reason.

I'm a huge fan of MXL's capsule mics. For a long time the V63m was my workhorse, but recently I've switched to a V88 which I like even better, especially for vocals.

Okay, so this is weird. Logic X used to work just fine with no recording latency at all, but recently, when I record a track, SOMETIMES the audio ends up being delayed on the timeline by about 1/8 of a second or so - but sometimes it doesn't, even recording to the same track in the same project multiple times. This happens whether Logic's in low latency recording mode or not, or whether the FireStudio is in low latency vs. normal vs. safe mode.

Has anyone else run into this issue, and can anyone figure out the rhyme or reason and, ideally, a fix?

This only started happening recently as far as I know, and I've made sure I'm running the latest drivers and firmware. The only thing that's changed in my setup is I've installed the iPad Logic Remote but this happens whether my iPad is connected or not.

Thanks.

Huh, this is strange... audio in Logic Pro X and iTunes are just fine. It was only Quicktime Player that was having problems, and it may have just been particular to the file I was playing (even though the sound was just fine in my internal speakers). Oh well, I think I can live with that.

Hi, I know Mavericks just came out yesterday but the knowledgebase claims that there are no known compatibility issues with it. However, ever since upgrading, I can't get steady audio output through mine - the playback is very juddery and it sounds like there's a buffering problem or the like. Just to be sure I upgraded my software to the latest, checked the firmware version, and did a factory reset, and also tried all four safe modes (low latency, normal, safe mode 1, safe mode 2) in Universal Control.

Any ideas for anything else I should try?

The version of UC I downloaded from the site claimed to be 1.7.1, although the "about UC" dialog box still shows it as 1.6.5460, and Driver version 4.0.0.14255.

Well, thank you for the update. It would have been nice if there had been something indicated about it closer to the time of Lion's release.

I tried installing the latest Snow Leopard driver build and just got an unspecified installation error, so it's not like I'm just assuming that the driver doesn't work based on your word.

Nice to know you guys are on top of things, and are registered Apple developers so that you can receive pre-release GM builds of upcoming operating systems so you aren't blind-sided by major operating system upgrades that people have known about a year in advance. Oh, wait.

What is it about pro audio vendors that makes them think it's okay to hold off on updating their software for major changes to their customers' platforms?

It's not just you guys, of course. Native Instruments and MOTU are even worse. At least you guys continue to support your products more than two months after they come out. But still.

I mean, sure, I could just hold off on updating my OS until the driver gets updated, except that this doesn't help me with the new Mac I just bought for my studio, because I'd been waiting to upgrade until Lion came out because Apple was withholding hardware upgrades until that happened. I'm not going to have any way to NOT run Lion on it. I guess I'm just going to have to use a cheap USB audio interface in the mean time.

I understand there being some brokenness and some beta-quality nature to various things when the OS actually comes out, but for a professional-audio hardware company to not be willing to get a single ADC developer license so that they can be prepared and be ready with SOME sort of driver upgrade when the OS itself is in beta - much less after it's actually been released to retail - is just ridiculous.

Apple is VERY GOOD to developers when it comes to keeping them ready for major OS changes. You guys really dropped the ball, and now I'm going to think twice about buying another PreSonus product in the future.
