G4 Powerbook/Metric Halo 2882 Crashing

So here it goes with my first post...

I have a 1.5 Ghz G4 Powerbook and two Metric Halo 2882's that crash when there are more than eleven tracks being recorded simultaneously. I am using Cubase SX as software. The machine will record for a while, and then there is a glitch and the many tracks become misaligned. From what I have read on this forum my machine should be able to handle sixteen tracks easily. Is there a way to get the machine to save to the hard disk earlier, and not save so much info in the RAM? The problem happens as the CPU meter spikes up considerably.

logic 6.4.2 with metric halo 2882: clicks

ok. we are using logic 6.4.2 with the metric halo 2882 (8 in and 8 out) interface and experiencing some issues. one of these being clicks on the while recording anything through the analog inputs. all the wiring has been tested so it would seem to be a software issue. also being used is the tc powercore firewire hardware unit without plugins active during recording. if anyone has an identical setup and has experienced similar clicks on audio, could you please advise. thanks

Logic, Metric Halo, and External Firewire HD problems

I want to post my problem here to see if anybody's encountered it before. I have found a workaround for the time being, but i'm not satisfied with the answer I'm getting.

My setup is an iBook G4 running Logic Express 6 with the Metric Halo 2882 + DSP firewire interface and a LACIE 80 gig firewire drive. I have the drive 1st in the firewire chain then the mobile I/O. When recording only audio I get the error "Error trying to sync audio and midi" which makes no sense because I'm not using any midi! All my prefs have all midi stuff off and all sync settings look fine.

Metric Halo ULN2 vs Apogee Mini Me

Hi, I am new here, I hope I have the right forum for this question. I have been using an Mbox for the past year as a tie over to getting something better. I am now at a toss up between the ULN 2 from Metric Halo, which sounded great and the Apogee Mini Me, more expensive but a lot where I am, but people rave about it. Which one has the better converters - ie which one is going to be a better front end for nearly everything that I record to digital? Speaking purely of the quality of the sound after it has been run through these machines?
