Post subject:  Put to the test - Crash log & hercules sound card dying?

Hey all,
In the last couple of weeks, most of the gigs i've played have been peppered with increasing numbers of droppouts and glitches when using the PC version of dJDecks. Vinyl control basically has been unusable recently and I hadn't been really sure why this was happening. It got to a point where it would be dropping out for no reason, with the cpu under very low load, and not using vinyl control. It was super frustrating!
I isolated the problem to be my sound card. This problem existed when using the hercules sound card on both Mac & PC versions.
The workaround I used was to use the Mac version with the internal sound card of my Macbook pro for master output, and the hercules for headphones. This provided a more reliable output without dropouts- YAY!. However, I discovered that there was a latency difference between the headphones and master, making mixing with the hercules headphone output really annoying. Several miliseconds of delay on the monitoring signal vs. the core audio output.
I made it work for a set i played, and it was OK.
Until DJD crashed.... :(
I half expected it as i have not found the Mac version super stable in my tests.
I have emailed my crash logs to Adion.

Question:
Is it possible for a sound card to 'wear out'? My Hercules has been pretty solid over several years of heavy use. Is it possible that it can deteriorate and cause droppouts like the ones I've been experiencing?


Thanks!
Rowan

I was getting dropouts like this on my macbook until I changed the usb port my audio8 was plugged into, so maybe try another usb port or new cable.

Wow, thanks for the tip. I sometimes considered what might be the first thing to go- the USB cable was on the list. I didn't think about the port I plugged into however.
I'll give it a try.

On my macbook I find plugging my soundcard into the usb closest the screen works best.

I used a different usb port and it worked perfectly last night! Thanks everyone for the feedback on the USB ports. I didn't realize my mac could be the problem...
The sound from the Hercules was back to normal. Very weird--
The mac version was good- except for one crash and about 30 s of dead air! Damn!

Crash log sent to Adion. I don't know what to look for in the log- but it sure would be nice to have this NOT happen!

Thanks,

Rowan
