i feel a bit bad to write another thread about a crackling Virus, but i think i read all the others & still cannot find a solution.
Basically my Virus TI1 crackles every few seconds while playing notes.
MacBook Pro 15'' Retina running Mountain Lion & Thunderbolt Display, Ableton 9.2
Virus TI1 OS 5.0.4 connected to Thunderbolt Display,
no crackles, everything worked fine, sometimes "out of sync" timing problems on heavy projects, but i think that's normal with the TI.
now i have:
MacPro (trashcan look) running Yosemite & Thunderbolt Display, Ableton 9.5
the same Virus TI1 now with OS 184.108.40.206 connected to Thunderbolt Display (or MacPro, same results)
i have tried 20 different USB cables & found 3 different behaviours:
- some don't even show the Virus in Audio/Midi Setup, no functionality
- some create heavy distortion & lots of crackles.
- others seem to work fine, but still the TI crackles every few seconds
none of them i can recall "out of sync" error messages from the plugin or so.
i'm obviously using the TI plugin (and won't use it without, TI was the reason why i bought the virus and it worked fine for years for me).
I have tried all available OS versions down to 5.0.8, but the lower the version number gets, the more it crackles.
Strange enough a mate who visited me for a week didn't have crackles running his Cubase 8 on my same MacPro (my Ti was connected directly to MacPro with OS 220.127.116.11)
Thanks for your suggestions & help!
