Re: Logic jumping out of record - ...
The FW-1884 does have transport controls, though I don't usually arm it by them. Normally I use the REC button on the desk, but increasingly I'm using the keys commands on my keyboard.
I don't think you can disable the transport controls
on the desk.
I often use Logic's controls, but have not noticed a difference.
I did briefly use an M-Audio interface (also FW),
once again the results were inconclusive.
To be honest, the fact that the fault is intermittent, and that because of other problems (with the new Mac dismounting external HDs at random, and many re-installs, clean install OSX, etc. - also I have been ill recently) - anyway haven't been able to really concentrate on this issue for a while.
However the FW-1884 has been back to Tascam, checked and pronounced good.
There was a corrupt contrl surfaces prefs file passed across from the old G5 when the new Mac came (Sept 2010), and with that and not knowing I had to boot in 32bit - the desk was half working - and was checked out OK by Tascam.
The problem was there with the 2.3ghz Quad G5, on and off since May '06. I eventually
thought the core audio was spiking (CPU meter supported this) - and expected the new Macpro
would easily cope. Anyway it's been a rocky ride since then, though the suppliers are having the Macpro back (for the third time - with the external HDs now) to try to find the fault with the external HDs (FW) dismounting - an intermittent fault.
I installed a Sonnet Allegro FW-400 PCI-e card in the G5, in the hopes of a better bandwidth/stability, and have moved it over to the Macpro. None of the steps so far have yet eliminated the occasional glitches - though I
will be doing more testing.
Anyway, I'm still hoping to get it all going properly ASAP. Even with all the grief we have
done a new track which we are pleased with
