Audio drop out and glitches.
Greetings to all,
I am running Ableton Live 8 Standard on a PPC Mac G5 Tower, OS 10.5.5 with 3GB of RAM. My interface is an Alesis FW16.
When I launch Ableton everything runs fine for about an hour. Eventually, as tracks are added and effects used the playback starts to make glitch sounds. If I do not restart my machine I will eventually lose all audio and need to restart my interface and my ancient PPC tower.
I can upgrade my ram to 16GB for $170 or purchase a new Mac Mini for $599.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I just want to have latency free recording that doesn't get messed up after adding new tracks. Any thoughts?
Should I update the ram in my PPC? Or buy a new Mac Mini?
I have a new MacBook Pro but I haven't had any luck getting the Alesis (Firewire 400) unit to work on the laptop due to not being able to find a good FW 400 to FW 800 adapter.
