LPX occasional firmware dropouts with Saffire Pro 24


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


i recently got a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 and sometimes I'm experiencing some audio dropout with it. I have another WD studio 2 external hard drive hooked up on the other firewire port and occasionally when it reads data, the Saffire loses its FW lock (green FW led goes out) and audio stops.

I have a Mac Pro 8 core with 16 gb ram and before the saffire I've got a Tc electronic desktop connect and an Apogee Duet and i didn't have those firmware problems.

The only thing i recently changed is the upgrade to mavericks.

LPX is up to the latest update.

I tried swathing fw cables, switching the ports of both the Saffire and the WD Studio 2 and its useless...

I also have the latest Saffire drivers.

They are behaving like they both use the same firmware port and they can't work and transfer date in the same time...

What can i do ?


Thanks so much.
