It's a Rane 70 direct via usb into a macbook pro (older model, brand new SSD and brand new memory).
Just want to confirm this is exactly the effect - the audio continues playing but there is a perfect digital silent portion. When I say perfect, I mean it cuts off very briefly (sub-ms level), and it's instantaneous, no fade out (like a fader) or clicks (like a loose cable).kozikowski wrote: ↑Tue Dec 08, 2020 11:21 pmbut yours is the exact symptom you could get if somebody "killed the key" on the mixer for a split second. It's upstream from the A/D converter, so the stream would just keep right on trucking, but the show would be silent, and it would be missing for the right amount of time.
I'm not performing, I have it set up in my studio strictly for archiving vinyl right now. I could indeed record the room but it would just show the same audio glitch. I hear these while I am ripping (then I mark it, rewind the record, and repair the audio manually in post).kozikowski wrote: ↑Tue Dec 08, 2020 11:21 pmThis doesn't have to be Nashville Quality, but do you have an independent way to record the speaker, Control Room, or house feed from the mixer while you're making a dub? Wouldn't it be special if the house feed had a hole in it at the exact point the Audacity feed dropped dead?
I'm not recording the master output, I'm using the mixer as a USB audio interface and reading the direct feed off the turntable pre-amp.
The only connections are turntable phono -> mixer phono in, and mixer usb -> macbook.
I've tested it, and none of the mixer controls affect the recording, the feed I am getting off this particular channel is pre-everything.
I have considered attempting to tap the master though, but unless there's a way to select which channels to record in audacity that I don't know about, that would involve creating an aggregate device, and then I do actually have the potential for the problem you suggest - the mixer processing is then another stage the audio passes through, more colour, more potential for errors.
Is that what you are suggesting though? That maybe a mixer fader was getting bumped (or some other physical act) causing the glitches?
I'm going to make it a point to share some audio of the glitches. I literally rip these records for 8 hours a day so there is no shortage of examples.
