The buffer size of my Digidesign/Avid interface can't be changed

  • Live Versions: 1 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL

Symptom

Some audio interfaces like the Avid Digi 002 or 003 don't accept buffer size changes via the slider. Only the minimum and maximum values can be chosen.

Reason

Certain audio drivers can't handle "odd" buffer size values.

Solution

  • Open Live's preferences -> Audio tab.
  • Left-click the buffer size field.
  • On the keyboard, type a power of 2 audio buffer size value (16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, etc.).
  • Press Enter.
