Whenever I use Logic Pro 7.1 with GigaStudio 3.1 I get the error message: "Error while trying to synchronize audio and MIDI." Sometimes the message even specifies the sample rate that is in error (38871, etc.). I'm not sure where to troubleshoot this. I am using MIDI over Lan software to get MIDI from the Mac to the PC and I have an optical cable running from the digital Out port of my Mac audio box (Edirol UA-25) to the Digital In on the sound card in the PC (RME 96/8), which I'm told should keep the audio in both computers in digital sync (at 44.1). The audio Out from the RME card is connected to the digital In on the Edirol UA-25 by optical cable.
In the Logic MIDI settings, under the sync settings, I have checked the Transmit MIDI clock to "All" devices. There are two other settings in this window which I don't understand and don't know what to do with:
1) MIDI Time code-- Transmit MIDI Time Code
2) MIDI Machine Control, which has two check boxes: "Transmit MCC" and "Listen to MCC Input"
I have tried all manner of combinations of these settings, but still get the error message from Logic. After this error message pops up two or three times, I lose all the audio from the PC and get a perpetual static/hiss sound. Needless to say, this seriously interferes with my workflow.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
