Noise on input
I tried to do a 16 track capture yesterday with my 2 Mytek 8x192 interfaces via Firewire at 24bit/48k.
Inputs 1-8 saw and captured audio, but when I armed 9-16, all I got was noise.
The control panel software for the converters says everything is perfect on their side of things, and CoreAudio sees all 16 ins as well.
Now I'm questioning Jack and Ardour itself. Can anyone offer any insight/experience/assistance?
My 1TB drive on its own FW buss (cardbus - I'm on a 17" 1.67 G4 PowerBook with 2GB of RAM running OSX.5.4), with the converters on the on-board FW buss. The drive performed admirably, and the 2nd Mytek passed audio...if I can get this sorted, I'll bet on capturing 24 tracks at this bit depth/FS without overloading the processor, as well as get into a pay-per-capture scenario with Ardour. If ProTools LE can do 32 tracks on this machine, I'm sure Ardour is up to the task as well. I'm guessing this is just a config error or I need to run a different version of jack, or learn more about it's config.
