Not sure what your issue is, as long as you have the ASIO drivers installed you'll be able to get a decent copy of the main mix into and out of presonus. Even if not the standard windows sound drivers will recognise it as an external sound card and you can map this into / out of presonus so you don't actually need ANY drivers other than standard windows ones. If you were hoping to get access to the individual channels to do the mix in presonus forget it, this is not what what your mixer is designed for, get an X32 or other professional mixer.
sounds like it could be dust or moisture ...Try cleaning the board and knobs and faders. this may help it may make it worse. Also while at it...check all connections...especially from board to amps. or to outboard gear. Could be a bad chord
What makes you think the effects chip is bad? It is LIKELY a fine-pitch DSP that is far beyond what the average tech could do. If you could get one, you would have to take this to a shop specializing in surface mount rework. The chances of this chip being bad is very low. More probable is either pilot error or other circuits, especially those exposed to the external connections.
Just getting one of these... hope mine doesn't do this... However I can offer some suggestions to check that you have obeyed the rules of proper connection of music equipment to avoid noise and damage that can occur. FIRST... ALL and I mean ALL interconnected equipment such as amps, mixers, players, and computers, etc. need to be powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioning module, even if it means running power extension cord. AVOID static discharges to any connected part such as mics, computer, etc.. These can often freeze equipment even though you don't feel the spark. Without knowing your particular setup in detail myself nor most helping people will not be able to offer much more help.
The problem is that card has only UNBALANCED inputs. You really need balanced or first run the mixer outputs through a DI backwards. Frankly, I would recommend NOT using a card within the PC as there is so much digital noise. Use either a USB or Firewire external convertor and for goodness sakes use balanced lines from teh Mackie... ALL interconnected equipment needs to be powered from the same receptacle or source. M Audio, Roland/Cakewalk and Presonus all make cards as do others.
If this has a digital effects processor read on.., I had a SIMILAR problem on a Behringer GX110.
The electrolytic filter cap for the 5 volts of the DSP effects had gone bad. The 5 volts was dipping when the DSP reset and it would repeatedly reset causing a clicking at about once a second. 50 cent part fixed it. The part is a little undersized electrically so is more prone to failure in the unit I have.
That particular one had the DSP as a seperate board with its own 5 volt supply from the main transformer.
I repaired a Behringer guitar amp that had a DSP effects in it (BX1200 I believe).
The effects were on a seperate board and the board had its own 5 volt power supply. The filter capacitor for the 5 volt power on the board was UNDERSIZED and it had degraded causing the 5 volts to drop out of regulation, dipping to 4 volts. This caused the DSP effects to fail.
YOUR device MAY use the same DSP OR design.
Check the 5 volt power with an OSCILLOSCOPE to look for dips below the 5 volt operating point that occur at 120 HZ.
