Topic: Logic 8 + Atmos. Wrapper = ear splitting noise

    Logic 8 + Atmos. Wrapper = ear splitting noise

    Is no one else having this problem?

    I have a blank Logic 8 project. I drop in 2 Instrument tracks: one an Atmosphere Wrapper, the other, say, Absynth.

    I record a part in Atmosphere, any part. I then switch tracks which automatically record-enables the Absynth track. If I then press play, I get the most ear-piercing repeated popping noise, and the meter for the Atmosphere and Main Out channel strips both overload (+6). If I press stop or pause, the noise continues. The only way I can stop the noise is to:

    - quit Logic
    - switch back to the Atmosphere track and press the Record Enable button

    As long as Atmosphere remains the active track, the popping noise does not recur. But as soon as I make another track the active track, this noise occurs.

    It does not appoear that I can freeze wrapper tracks. When I try, I get the same popping overload noise as the freeze audio file. Sometimes when I unfreeze a track I get this same noise, with my only remedy the options described above.

    I CAN route the output of a wrapper to a bus, and route that bus into an audio track, so I am using that to do temporary bouncing of Atmosphere wrapper tracks. However, the wrapper track must be selected throughout the record, or else I'll get the ear piercing noise.

    If I disconnect the output of the wrapper track in the channel strip, I no longer get the noise however the meter for that channel strip registers an overload (+6).

    Bit-depth and sample rate do not have any bearing on this. I get the problem regardless of whether I go with 16 or 24 bits, 44 or 96 kHz.

    My config:

    2.33 MHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro (Rev B)
    Logic 8.0.0
    OS X 10.4.10
    Atmosphere Wrapper v0.6
    Pro Apps update not applied

    I have not done updates yet but that is planned (both to Logic 8.0.1 and OS X 10.4.11).

    Any clues on how to deal with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Just FYI

    System and Logic updates do not fix this problem. Also, it does not matter what audio interface I use, they all generate these horrible pops whenever a track not assigned to the wrapper is selected.

    Nobody else is seeing this type of behavior?
