    Hi,

    I've had a few bits of weirdness with the Echo AudioFire 8 since getting one last week.

    I am running Logic Pro 7.1.1 and Express 7.1.1 on a 1Ghz Powerbook with 512MB Ram - OS X 10.4.5

    Basically the console software seems very flaky. The latency when monitoring thru software is unusable - we're talking Elvis Slap Echo presets here - even when Logic's I/O buffer is set to 64 samples. The AudioFire Console application window disappears only to be seen again after re-launching . . . plus a few other issues but I'll keep the rant to a minimum.

    I've upgraded the AudioFire firmware to 1.04 and the driver is also 1.04.

    Perhaps it's just early days in their OS X driver development but any comments from anyone using an Audiofire on Mac or PC would be greatly appreciated.

    cheers

    Scott

    Hi Scott,

    I've been using the AudioFire 8 on Windows XP (Service Pack 2) for a few months with no problems. (Of course, that's Windows not Mac.) The only thing I thought was their problem that turned out to be mine was when I switched from Audition 1.5 to 2.0 and, hence, from WDM to ASIO drivers, I had some serious sample drop problems. Turned out that I was maxing the CPU with the scrolling live screen update in Audition. :oops:

    Once I turned that off all has been fine.

    I have to say that the Echo guys are great. They took my issue seriously, worked with me, and didn't say anything bad when I figured out it was my problem all along...

    Scot, I have the same problem you had with AF8+cubase 3.1/XP-SP2. What did you turn off? Just scrolling ?
