audio glitching

February 13, 2009 | 3:43 am

I’m having strange audio glitching when i hit about 60% of CPU.

I’m running a MBP, intel, OS 10.5.6. is there anything new that’s causing these problems? I’m experiencing it both in Max 5 and Max 4.6. I took a look at my activity monitor and nothing strange is going on. It sounds kind of like the problem from last year when the airport update was causing problems, but I thought we were way past that.

Did you check the buffer size in your max’s dsp window (options menu) this should be at least 512+ . Maye this might be the one , but then again , the problem might lay somewhere else .

thanks for the suggestion. That may have worked. it’s hard to tell, because it wasn’t doing it all the time before, but that makes sense anyway. The weird part is that it started happening with patches that I’ve been using for a long time, so it seemed like maybe it was yet another one of these things that started happening after a mac firmware update or some other software conflict. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion – I’ll post again if it resurfaces!
