Question about Music
I have an Ensoniq EPS synth which is quite a few years old. I want to find a good, high-quality Digital Audio Interface to hook up to it that can be used with my MacBook's GarageBand program. Where can I find info on what kind of interface might be best: the keyboard I have if five octave, touch sensitive, and has sampling capability and a SCSI port, MIDI IN, OUT, and THROUGH. All its samples will have to be transferred to the Mac.

I'm not at home right now where all my manuals are so I'll try to explain with out. You will have to set it so that the keyboard is the slave device. Try setting it to Omni receive. It has to be able to listen for all midi channels at once. You have to write a sequence on your computer and hook it to your keyboard by using midi out on the computer to midi in on the keyboard in order for you to use the computer as a controller. If you need the keyboard to create the sequences then you have to hook the midi send on the keyboard to the midi in on the computer play/enter your notes into individual tracks in your software then assign channels, voices etc to each track and save the sequence. Then when you hook it up the other way the sequence will play just like an audio recording except the sound w2on't be there. What you have recorded by creating a sequence is a series of midi messages that the keyboard will receive if you have it set properly and hooked up ptroperly which it will translate into sound. This is a minimalist explanation at best. You will have to have a better understanding of not only your keyboard but also your software and midi in general. There are some pretty amazing things you can do with midi. For instance if you have a lighting controller that is midi capable you can i,mbed all the lighting scene changes for your song in order on one track. You can also control your guitar effects pedal to change effects automatically while your playing. Once you get a handle on it you are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Hope this helps in some way.

I'd recommend a looping pedal as the simplest solution. Check out this link:http://www.recordingreview.com/articles/blogs/67/Confusion-With-Loop-Pedals.html Consider joining. It's free and there is a wealth of good info on gear, Midi, recording etc. Let me know if this helps.

In the control panel, sounds and devices, check that the device is in each list under audio, voice, and hardware tabs and that your device is the default device. If NOT in the list, the CORRECT drivers are NOT installed or not properly installed.

It is likely that your compter is running out of time to service the audio interface. You need to turn off wireless connections, turn off all Anti-virus and antispam and anti popup software that might be running. You are probably getting underun errors.
When data is missed due to insufficient processor power/timing, this causes the sound to break up badly.
