Question about Digidesign Mbox External Sound System
I am using using Pro-tools LE 7.1 on a Mac intel OSX 10.4. with an Mbox.
when I am editing or playing something back, randomly, this white noise static will just burst out of no where. it is really loud. i cannot hear the music after that. sometimes it kinda sounds like it is distorting the exsisting sound. I have to quit and then restart the application. no data gets lost and nothing is wrong with the file after. it just hurts really bad and is happening now every 15 minutes.
I have tried using different usb cables.
Had same problem, i went out and got a new external sound device 15 dollars,all is well again. hope this is useful, glen

I have had this problem happen several times.
First off, if you haven't already done so, then you need to go to DigiDesign's help site and there is a troubleshooting post from awhile back that tells you all sorts of things to do to make sure your system is in top shape. This will include your Sleep and Color settings, Disk Permissions, Preferences and more. Once all that has been done I can almost guarantee you that noise won't happen again unless you have some damage to your hardware.
I will note that most people I know who have regular troubles with Pro Tools have NOT followed the directions from DigiDesign. Pro Tools is a very finicky program and if you cut corners it will cost you a lot of time and energy.
Anytime I install anything I instantly repair my disk permissions and delete preferences for Digidesign. But, I generally avoid ANY updates or unnecessary installs as I've finally got my machine running properly.
Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I can try to help!
