Hi,

Have started experimenting with this USB interface in MC6.

http://www.esi-audio.com/products/ugm96/

Pretty good but I did get one stutter-click 2 minutes into a mic recording. I have a suspicion this may be latency-related but I thought I'd pass it by the forum before delving into Preferences ;)

UGM96 is unknown territory to me, I can lay down a master track straight but to double or multiple track I need to listen in on MC6 'Monitor Incoming Audio' with the cans, then I can hear what I am playing plus the track/s I am jamming to.

With M-Audio USB FastTrack I never ever used direct monitoring, but there doesn't seem to be any other way to dub with the 96?

Trying out the 96 because its in & output controls are on the pc monitor, where MixCraft is - so I don't have to keep swapping between separate interface switches and virtual software controls.

Thanks,

Ric

well i put a full project together. direct monitoring started to beak up after about 4 multitracks. I basically lowered volume levels rather than tweak latency and buffer.

default latency is 128 and buffer size 2. I did tweak the buffer back to 96 but it reset itself at 128 afterwards. I changed the buffer from 2 to 4 just to see what would happen but I can't hear any difference.

so the interface seems to be set optimally. mercifully the fragmenting audio was only output, the resulting wav and mp3 files were okay. Very tricky to get the volume right so you can dub along in real time but not freak the software.

but so far so good - i was using a brace of FastTracks to record line-in instruments, microphone and guitars to the pc, at the moment I can input everything through one single UGM96 without having to take my eyes off the monitor, when in recording mode.

to live mix/dub i need to load Monitor Incoming Audio.
