I have been trying for weeks, but I cannot find a procedure to reproduce this error. I seems to strike at random out of the blue:
I work with a pair of Macs, running OSX 6.8
I use the Zoom R16 in Audio Interface mode. It is bundled together with the Mac's main audio output and Soundflower into an aggregate device.
Live Input goes through the Zoom - output is via Line Out (on the Mac Pro) or Headphones output (on the Laptop, plugged into an amp).
Occasionally, one of three corruptions happens:
1) The output signal crackles badly and it sounds distorted
2) The output signal crackles badly, sounds distorted and is delayed by about half a second
3) The output signal sounds fine at first, but there is a crackling and distorted echo with a delay of about half a second.
First, it only seemed to happen at the beginning of a session, when I launch AM. Seeing that I can fix it easily and reliably by momentarily disabling audio processing in AM, I was going to live with it. Yesterday, though, just once, it happened out of the blue while I was playing, and now I am concerned. Does anybody know, or can anybody here make a good guess, what the trigger for this may be?
