System: Mac Pro 2X2.26GHz Quad, 12GB RAM, OS10.6.4, Logic Pro 9.1.1, MOTU 896 (X2) GURU 1.6.12
I have this strange bug where one either the left or right channel of Guru emits a loud "pop" and appears to "lock" with the output meters on the audio interface pinned at max, the channel meter in Logic shows nothing and the speaker cone is locked either fully in, or fully out - as if someone had put DC across the speaker inputs! Stopping play and restarting usually causes the speaker cones to leap back to rest with another loud pop and fixes it, until randomly it happens again - sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right.
In the attached screen grab I routed the GURU AU Channel to a bus and recorded the bus to a stereo audio track. It shows quite cleaqrly what's going on - and you'll noticed I only needed to try it twice to replicate the problem.
Can anyone out there help?
Hmm, Angus may need to chime in here but he's on holiday this week. It's not something I've come across before. No insert plugins on the channel I take it? Does it happen in all projects or just in the one you're working on? Are you using any of Guru's internal effects? If so try removing them and see if it goes away.
Thanks for looking at this: nope there are no inserts on the Guru channel which could be causing this. It also happens in all projects. However, it happens more frequently when I am using other memory heavy plug ins on other channels - eg. Kontakt with Abbey Road Drums loaded, or Trillian (although I have tried it in a fresh song with no other tracks and suffer the same problem.)
With or without Guru's internal effects, the problem remains the same: but the more heavily Guru is taxed, the worse it gets.
Hmm, like I say I've not seen it before. Angus will have a better idea when he gets back off hols. It seems like it might a filter breaking. What happens if you change the filter type on all layers/pads after it happens? (hold Cmd-Alt and change the filter type to do all pads/layers)
