Re: Ultralite AVB

After the update it doesn't crack as often when starting or stopping something! That's nice for home/studio use, but any chance of crackling makes the device unsuitable for performance. Have you compared the Babyface Pro with the non-Pro Babyface by accident? I think my non-Pro Babyface is a little...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Well, that's anticlimactic. :/ I've gotten much better speakers since before (Genelec 8030As) and just tried the Ultralite AVB for the first time with them. I can clearly hear now that the RME Babyface Pro sounds better, so I'll likely sell my Ultralite AVB. Too bad I already broke the screen carryi...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Has any of you manged to get a decent performance with jack2? I keep on having xruns all over the place, regardless what I do. With Jack1 however, the performance is solid and I can 0 xruns with buffer sizes down to 64. I would have moved back to jack1 but sadly Bitwig only supports jack2 and now I...

Re: Ultralite AVB

The crackling happens sometimes when there is an XRUN, but most XRUNs do not start the crackling.

Re: Ultralite AVB

FWIW MOTU support said they're looking into the issue with their developers. In the meantime I have set up QJackCtl to start jltcgen automatically after I start JACK. Fortunately the Ultralite AVB automatically synchronizes to the LTC clock when it is set up on the same channel without having to go ...

Re: Ultralite AVB

I just found this: http://www.motunation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=63375&start=15#p548304 Seems like MOTU knows about it and it's a "chipsets problem". I'll try with a second machine and report if it doesn't do strange things. That thread seems to be discussing a different pr...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Btw, may I ask if you already performed with this and what horrors came upon you if so? I've only performed with it twice. One of those this crackling happened. I thought it was an issue with a loose analog cable or something. After it kept happening at home I realized it was a problem with the Ult...

Re: Ultralite AVB

I use a high quality USB cable (Chroma Cable from DJTechTools), so I don't think that's a problem. I've also had the same issue with the USB cable that was shipped with the Ultralite AVB.

Re: Ultralite AVB

To clarify my use case: PC (onboard soundcard) spdif (i.e. kodi) -> spdif in@ultraliteAVB -> ultraliteAVB USB in (route) -> PC (jack/calf etc.) -> ultraliteAVB USB out (route) -> active speakers/subwoofer/headphone If you route the SPDIF input directly to the Ultralite AVB's output without going th...

Re: Motu Ultralite Mk4 -> any luck with web interface?

The web app of the Ultralite AVB is not accessible via USB either. My laptop only has one USB-A port, so I am working around both those limitations by connecting my Ultralite AVB's USB and Ethernet connections to a USB hub with a built in Ethernet NIC . If you can still return the Ultralite Mk4 to t...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Here is a recording of the crackling distortion. Musinux, can you listen to that and confirm that we are talking about the same issue?

Re: Ultralite AVB

I'm using the toslink-in as my main sound source (htpc). Internal/optical clock mode setting doesn't make a difference regarding the cracking sound. To be clear, you have the optical input routed directly to the Ultralite AVB's output without processing the optical input in your computer first? Are...

Re: Ultralite AVB

I recently got a new laptop that only has one USB-A port and no Ethernet port, so I got a USB hub with a built in NIC to access the web app on my Ultralite AVB by plugging in both its USB and Ethernet connections to the hub. I had to change the "IPv4 Method" in GNOME's network settings fro...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Aside from that, there is one really serious issue that I am wondering if anyone else has encountered. Occasionally when there are xruns, instead of hearing a normal momentary pop, I hear a horrible crackling noise that sounds somewhat like a bitcrusher effect mixed with the music. The original sig...
