I'm having some trouble with my setup. 1 computer with an M-audio Audiophile soundcard is connected to my main DAW which has an M-Audio Delta 1010 soundcard. It is connected via S/PDIF cable. Think is I'm getting random clicks and pops regardless of whether I am playing back sound or not.
I figure that it must be something with how the cards and synched with each other.
Here is what the troubleshooting manual is says:
If I mute the S/PDIF input then that obviously works - but I'm not interested in that since I'm actually using it. Now for the past two days I have tried what feels like every possible option of syncing the two machines.Problem: I’m getting some pops and clicks in my monitoring signal, even
when my system is idle.
Possible Cause: If the S/PDIF input is not muted in the monitor mixer,
and you have the Delta 1010’s master clock set to something other than the
S/PDIF input, you are monitoring an out-of-sync S/PDIF stream. This can result in lost or bogus samples being recorded.
Anyone have any ideas?
