S1 5.5.2 ... Interface X32R
Recording live band - 24 channels.
Dropout protection is at max.. Block size 4096, Plug-in nap enabled
Playing back 24 songs in the same recording - every song has at least one dropout. No cracks or noise - its just like the time wasn't there - a few hundreds of a second - but enough that it is very clear.
It is not the computer... had the same problem with my 2018 I9 MacBook Pro with 4TB internal SSD. I have now migrated to M1 MAX powered 2022 MacBook Pro - 64gb ram - 8Tb internal SSD. I did however transfer everything with Apples "transfer" program so all Plug-ins and templates and other gremlins have been transferred as well. I have just downloaded fresh S1 installer, installed it (because of ARM architecture) and reactivated the S1 license
Two things that I have done recently but not tested yet is that I have disabled all non-presonus plugins, and have turned monitoring on each channel off ..... but at least the last part should be possible to do even with a lot smaller block size (would like to run some effects on the computer - live - while recording)
Anything else to do ?
