Live Software Instrument stops working


Recommended Posts

Annoying issue that's happened after upgrading Mac OS to El Capitain.  Duly upgraded to latest logic pro in case it was a compatibility thing, but the issue remains and never happened before the OSX upgrade:


Happens on the active software instrument when editing or recording realtime:  everything works normally for a few minutes then, suddenly, the output just dies.  No realtime playing of instrument is possible, no playback of existing sequences and no sound when hitting notes in piano roll.  I have to close the song, reopen and then everything is back to normal for a few minutes.  Then it all happens again.  Massively disrupting my workflow to have to keep closing and re-opening song every few mins.   So far, I've noticed this on ESX24 tracks only - but then that's what I've been working with since upgrading to OSX and the problem emerging - so can't be sure if it would do the same on any other software instruments.


Any insights?...

Sounds like a driver issue to me.

What kind of interface do you use?
