tascam us-144 mkII audio problem os x


I have no idea what might be causing this or what the problem is in the first place, but maybe anyone here can help me out.

I have a Tascam US-144mkII and an Arturia Microbrute connected to it. Everything is set up in Live and it all works... for a short time anyway. After a while, the audio coming from my external device is starting to experience a lot of noise and distortion at some points even completely dropping away. When I change from bit accurate or core audio it sometimes helps, but it will eventually get noisy and distorted again. Basically whatever I do, I will always wind up with a distorted messy audio input...

And it's definitely not the Microbrute, because I also have it with the Volca Beats. So I'm quite sure it's the audio interface. I have upgraded the firmware and drivers, but that doesn't help. Also tried both 32 and 64 bit version of Live, but that also doesn't do anything. Running OS X Mavericks.

I'm thinking this audio interface might just be a pile of dung...

Anyway, any help is much appreciated.
