can the AudioBox USB 96 interface with a condenser mic be used with Audacity?
Im using Mojave
Do you already have the AudioBox USB 96 interface, or is this a “pre-sales question”?
I bought one but have been having trouble getting it working
Does it work at all? For example, are you able to play iTunes through it?
I finally got it working some… I discovered that I had a bad USB cable. I can now play iTunes, but when I run Audacity, I have to quit all other programs including my browser . I’m not at all happy with it so far. Would a Focusrite work better?
Why is that? What happens if your browser is open?
I have gotten messages when using Audacity that other software was using needed resources or that I had a slow external drive… since I have no drive other than the computer hooked up I presumed it was the former… my recordings are what I think is called “clipped”
Typically, the problem is [u]dropouts[/u]. That’s where something else hogs your system for a few milliseconds too long, your recording buffer overflows, and you get a glitch.
[u]Clipping[/u] is “overload” distortion. If it happens during digital recording it means your signal is too high and the analog-to-digital converter inside the AudioBox interface is trying to go higher than it can “count” with 24-bits. This happens before the computer sees the data.
Thank you! it definitely was Dropouts! Since an external drive was not in use, and I typically don’t have virus detection running, was this likely caused by my Browser other things like iCloud and/or Dropbox?.. Not being able to have a browser running would be a drag.
