Connecting 3.5mm Jack Changes Project Sample Rate

Wed Sep 18, 2019 6:35 am

Latest LPX, project using stock, third party, and UAD plugins requiring external DSP hardware, but not attached. Something I've been able to do easily and readily in LP 9.

When I connect a 3.5mm jack to the laptop (per signature) my sound output immediately slows down and goes down an octave. My project which was/is recorded at 88.2 is now 44.1.

What's going on?

This whole mess gets worse because if I try to fix it by going to project settings and changing the now italic font 88.2, all my frozen tracks now have to re-freeze and they do so at 44.1. Eventually, with a few attempts, I get things to re-freeze at 88.2 but, of course, all my UAD plugins (because the DSP is not attached) are not rendered and the whole thing is a grand cluster F**k..

Any others experience this?

I suspect this has more to do with the hardware than the version of Logic, the latest machines must have an d/a converter that can't handle 88.2. If your previous machine was a unibody it had both analog and digital for the headphone jack.

Contacting Apple Support, the tech said his copy of Mohave has 88.2 available in "Audio MIDI Setup" for Built-in Output. That value is not present in High Sierra per screenshot. Not sure if that's the answer to my problem. The Apogee Duet DOES have 88.2, of course.

I can't upgrade to Mohave without breaking some critical hardware usage.

I was told Mohave would give me 88.2 so I upgraded this week to Mohave. Nope! I called the upper echelon of Apple support for creative professionals (if that's a thing) and they had to ask 2–3 other people. Result: It's HARDWARE related. I have MacBook Pro 2017 and it is definitely on the unsupported list for 88.2. Most MacBook Pros after 2015, IIRC are not supported, until we get to the M1 chip.
