I posted this on the Cubase forum with no luck, so I try it here:
Since buying a new computer I´m experiencing a weird problem.It´s an Intel firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz, 2GB of RAM, running Cubase SX3 with M-Audio Firewire 410 as soundcard.Everything works just fine-except for one thing: When recording audio I get the fryingpan syndrome-crackles, sizzles, whatever you wanna call it.No problems with softsynths (midi) or importing audio.It´s just the recording that doesn´t work.I have two internal SATAs, the mobo is an MSI P965 platinum and of course the soundcard is firewire.Is this the problem?
I raised the Asio buffer size to 1024, didn´t help one bit.And it works perfectly on my old one-core Dell machine.That´s why I thought it might be the firewire bus.Or the Pci-bridge.
thanks for trying.
I´ve put in the firewire adapter card I had in the Dell (That´s a P4 cpu 2.66 Ghz with a uh..Dell mobo).Same result.Works there, not here.I´m not sure about the chipset, it seems to be a Via VT6306.But why would the FireWire 410 accept it on the one-core pc?
The integrated FireWire controller (on the P965) is a VIA VT6307.
