I have been happy with my Scarlett 18i8
but I recently tried to open up 16 mic channels for a band recording.
Using all the analog ins plus the ADAT in.
I had many freeze ups (requiring reset), just barely got through the session.
Doesn't seem normal, so my question is:
What would you recommend examining/debugging/optimizing and in what order, to get best buffering and performance?
Clock at 44.1 or 48? (ADAT AI3
requirse 48...is that less stable?)
Turn off Internet?
Turn off Virus protection
Switch to SSD drives?
Get an new USB cable?
Hope this is not too familiar to most, but if you have any information I will greatly appreciate you sharing your experience.
