    will now reboot in 10.8.3 and open the same project...

    tried resetting NVRAM, SMC will try again after this test on 10.8.3.

    In 10.8.3 the crackling still occurs when for example changing send routings during playback but now there are no error messages in console..

    I'm suddenly getting weird behavior from this particular thread

     

     

    disappearing posts etc unless I actually make a post, upon which everything reappears

     

     

    anyone else experiencing this?

    I'm gonna entertain a hunch with your possible crackling.  I know if you have an analogue input or a channel that has an inaudible signal running through it (DC bias, very low frequency, extremely high frequency etc)  any routing changes will make a loud crack through the mains.

     

    its not uncommon for mixers like the Xone to have this biasing issue on the preamps

     

     

    Are you experiencing the big cracking noise on the headphone output of your computer or is that noise exclusive to the Xone?

     

     

     

    •• Edit: also check to see that every last thing on your audio signal chain is plugged into the same power circuit.   This includes stuff like powered studio monitors, the mixer, the computer, any external fx, drives, printer, usb devices....generally everything in the system that could possibly be sharing the ground connection

    mm yes but my address book on this machine is not important but it seems that even rerouting a send from fxbus to master for example while no audio is being sent (so it is not like you interrupt audio) the static still occurs and i have experienced this also outside of live, like videos listening and skipping through new music, so funky it definately is but probably not the cause I would think.

    Did a NVRAM / PRAM reset pops still there.

    no error message

    i think you might be experiencing 2 separate problems simultaneously

     

    DC bias cannot be heard and it would be present on a number of channels simultaneously

     

    in the Audio MIDI Setup app, is your clock set to "Internal"?  Does changing the sample frequency (while abelton is not running) make a loud cracking sound or does it just make a tiny snap?

     

    when the audio stutters on the 3 dif systems I've tested, it makes a high pitched squeak because the stream is being interrupted and interpolated between zero-crossings.
