Currently I am working on a new piece for live input (electric guitar) which is processed in realtime by a generative Max/MSP patch.
Whenever I hit a key on the computer's keyboard or even touch the trackpad after a certain time (say: 1 minute), the audio output produces a noticable audio glitch.
It seems to me as if the computer was falling in a sort of sleep mode and the glitch were the side effect of its awakening.
Changing the performance parameters of Max (Overdrive, Scheduler in audio interrupt, various settings for I/O and Signal Vector Sizes) and also the "Energy Saver" of the System Preferences did not help.
Here's my system configuration:
* MacBook Pro (2.16 GHz, 2 MB RAM, OSX 10.4.11)
* Edirol UA-25 Audio Interface
Any ideas that could help?
Thanks in advance,
