StudioLive General Discussion » Quicktime X Stuttering Audio Problem » Go to message
Just want to add my bit to this.

I too use one Mac with StudioLIve 16.0.2.....audio crackles stutters on Safari on soundcloud and so on as well as some non-public DJ download sites I use.

I use another Mac with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14.....audio DID stutter on this too until I updated my drivers. Now it's fine.

I guess not enough people are using the 16.0.2 (or other presonus mixers) compared to little audio interfaces that thousands of home-users use making the upgrade maybe not worth their while (until enough people complain hard enough).

UPDATE: PLEASE NOTE

I emailed Presonus about this and here is their answer:

"The issue with the stuttering problem has to do with an issue of Quicktime and playback through firewire. We have opened a case with Apple at this time and they have acknowledge that there is a problem with firewire audio on their application.

At this time, other companies have created "work arounds" for problems dealing with the problem Apple notes is an issue. As our devices communicate directly on the kernel for access to the core audio stream, there is an issue with the sandbox Quicktime application and an error in the code that only effect firewire devices, mainly our older StudioLive mixers, like the one you have.

Note that this is only a problem with Quicktime and iTunes 11. No prior versions of Quicktime have this issue and we have convfirmed that the issue happens with all releases of Mavericks and Mountain Lion, or any other prior version of OSX running QT or iTunes 11.

Presonus Audio software engineers are possibly looking into a way to correct the problem if Apple does not correct the problem and we will look into seeing if it is possible to correct in our driver design. Again, thank you for your consideration and please let me know if you have any more questions."

It seems impossible to split the returning FX

I have FXA and B going to Aux 3 & 4. But they are mixed, so NOT like FXA-> Aux 3 and FXB->Aux 4 (which would be ideal)

This is done by activating the Aux 1-4 button under each effect. Because I am using Auxs 1 and 2 for external hardware effects only Auxs 3 and 4 are now sending internal FX signals

I then have these running out into my patch bay and returning into two audio channels. Unfortunately, like I said, both audio channels have the same effected signal, just one I've chosen to pan left, the other right.

Because of this, I have the effected signal coming to channels 15/16 (i.e., one of the four stereo channels)

But this is good enough for me at the moment. All I need is separate dry and wet signals. I just try and balance my reverb of delay or whatever before recording the overall mix into my DAW

Yeah, I have the mixer.....it's pretty great.....but have been struggling to figure out a way to record the FX

I can't figure out when you depress 'Main' under FX A or FX B (so it's NOT illuminated), which AUX the FX signal goes to.

Once I do that I'm happy to route whichever Aux it is back into one of the other channels so I can record it

OK thanks, but how do you assign the internal FX to a specific channel?
