Max6 + Dante Virtual Soundcard
Dec 07 2015 | 9:10 am
I'm having trouble with Max 6 running the Dante Virtual Soundcard. I've been working with this setup for quite some time now and there is this weird issue of max crashing whenever the dac is turned on using Dante VS. When or why that happens seems to be completely random, I it experienced it on different computers (MacPro, Macbook Pro) running different Versions of Dante VS. Just now I can't start working because Max crashes immediately whenever I turn on the dac using the Dante VS. I used the exact same setup last week until Friday and everything worked well, no problems whatsoever. The last couple of times I experienced this problem I played around with the audio configuration e.g. turning dac off, setting the dante VS only as input device, turning dac on and setting dante VS as output device. Sometimes it takes up to half an hour until one of these trial and error setups works. I used Dante VS with quite a few Hosts now and it appears to be a Max 6 issue (haven't worked with Max7 enough to be sure it doesn't happen there). It's a very scary issue since having this issue in a rehearsal or even concert situation where time is short and there's an ensemble or even orchestra waiting to start is completely unacceptable.
I know the Dante VS userbase is rather small but maybe someone experienced this issue with another soundcard driver?
