  1. Interesting, inasmuch as I have not had this problem in CbB but I have had it crop up in Reaper.  Slightly different, though. The clicks, pops and crackles were recorded along with random parts.  So, it was not just the playback, it was baked into the wave when recording.  In that case (Reaper), I turned off the ReaVerb convo plugin during tracking... enabled it for mixing and rendering...and it cleaned right up.  Reaper also has settings in Options>Preferences>Buffering that you can mess with.  Surprisingly, I found suggestions that some of the buffer settings yield better results at lower-than-default buffer values.  Anyways, not relevant to CbB but when someone said they were thinking of switching to Reaper, it made me chuckle.

  2. jesse, I intermittently get a failed calibration when I fire up the MCU.  Like you say, the fader (always #7) will hang and the message screen identifies a failure.  I have read that the ribbon connector inside can get hung up and moving the fader manually up and down can free it.  I've also read that you shouldn't do that...  😄

    I've read that a failed capacitor can be the cause but, in my case since the problem comes and goes, I don't think it's a capacitor.

    For a weird reason which makes no sense, sometimes it just works fine after the whole system (not just the MCU) gets rebooted.  

    These MCU are getting on in years so I can't complain about a little finicky-ness. To be expected.  All in all, they are an awesome product. 

  3. FWIW, I am using iConnectivity mio 1x1 USB-MIDI, DIN-MIDI Interface with my old grey version of the Mackie Master Control.

    Works fine.

    I was running it through the DIN conns on my Babyface Pro but wanted to reclaim those ports for other things. So I tried this and it worked just the same.

    Pfft. Crybabies. I hauled all this plus stood for 4 hours with an 83 Gibson Les Paul Custom Deluxe or a Japanese (very heavy/well made) Strat hung on my neck. My one shoulder still droops a good inch or two lower than the other from having a guitar hanging on me every Fri./Sat. night for 16 years straight. PLUS I was the keyboard player on some songs for a while too. The drummer got off easy IMHO.



    These are similar but not the exact ones. (All other pics are the exact models I used to haul.


    Two of these ....


    This was so heavy it had wheels ... It's a 2x12 combo with enormous transformers. It was a good 80lbs or more.


    Plus 2 guitars, plus my rack unit, and mic stand, and all the other smalls that go with all that like cables, mic, strings, picks, etc. etc.. Never had a problem with rear wheel drive in my 81 Monte' Carlo driving in the winter hauling all that crap. It was actually worse in my front wheel drive van.

    I remember those wedge monitors, wouldn't do a gig without 'em!

    So, am I the piece of wood or the hammer or the saw?  Or is that the computer?  Or Cakewalk?  Or Realtek? 

    Listen, you tell me what saw to use, and I'll go get it.

    Sorry, was referring more or less to the OP's post.  You have a Steinberg interface?  It should be more than up to the task, I would think.

    Why would anybody struggle with an on-board Realtek sound card using janky drivers? Just get a decent interface with solid drivers and be done with it, is my point.
