New Audio Interface??

Question

Hi there,

I have had my Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 Firewire interface for the last 8 or so years using a TI based firewire PCI card and lately I have been getting lots of crackles, pops and even audio dropouts and was wondering since they are not supporting this audio interface anymore driver wise, would a newer Gen3 Focusrite Scarlett USB2 interface be better with windows 10 v.1909?

I have tried upping the latency, etc. pretty much everything I can do, including disabling background processes, etc, but still getting crackles and pops. So I was wondering if a new usb interface would fix this?

Thanks..

Hi guys..

thanks for all the responses. After some more diagnosing, I have come to find out I had a failing hard drive in my system that was causing the pops, crackles and freezes and it wasn't even my audio drive or main drive, just a backup drive...but I backed everything up and removed it and everything working great now...

Olá,

Eu tive minha interface Firewire Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 nos últimos 8 anos usando uma placa PCI firewire baseada em TI e ultimamente tenho recebido muitos crackles, pops e até desistências de áudio e fiquei imaginando, pois eles não suportam essa interface de áudio mais motorista, uma interface Gen2 Focusrite Scarlett USB2 mais recente seria melhor com o Windows 10 v.1909?

Eu tentei aumentar a latência, etc. praticamente tudo o que posso fazer, incluindo desabilitar processos em segundo plano, etc., mas ainda estou recebendo estalidos e estalos. Então, eu queria saber se uma nova interface USB iria corrigir isso?

Obrigado..

I had the same problem with my Tascam US-600 discontinued by the manufacturer. I was able to obtain significant improvements when using the Asio4All driver (http://www.asio4all.org). Today I work with much less problems, almost imperceptible. From time to time I need to use the application of the card itself to reset it. I hope this helps you.

Just one thing to check when it comes to crackles and pops, does the sample rate and bit depth match between CbB and your Saffire?  If so, just ignore my question (apologies).

Kind regards,

Yes, both CbB and the audio interface is synced, same sample rate and bit depth....
