Question about Edirol FA-66 (EDIFA66) Audio Input
Please can you help me ?
My Fa66 interface behahes normally for some 10 minutes and after this the sound starts to digitally detireate ( like digital distortion ) and I lose the sound altogether. I have to restart again after awhile after which it does the same thing.
I use a Mackbookpro laptop 2.16 GHZ with this unit . The Mac works fine with its own internal soundcard but the Fa66 behaves in thic bizarre way.
I would really appreciate any assistance.
I bought the FA-66 because I use Cakewalk Sonar and they sell this interface on the Cakewalk site with thier name on it. I've had nothing but problems with this unit as described above. I've tried it on two different computer and it does not work on either. I also use an RME Fireface 800 on both these machines, same set up and it works flawlessly. Drop the Edirol/Roland FA-66 and try something else like an RME card or something. That would be my suggestion. It's a shame Cakewalk promots this piece of garbage. I've tried Edirol/Roland technical support and the guy just kept saying the sound card works fine, like it was just my problem.

I am experiencing a problem similar to this in Windows 7 regarding the fa-66. When I pause a video, such as in iTunes, I lose all audio until I re-enable the audio driver. If I find a solution, I'll surely post it here.

The Fa 66 is an awesome card. Never had any problems with it on a Mac or PC. Use it for both live performance (ableton) and digital vinyl, and never had a problem with it. No prolems with home recording either(inuendo, MAC). Great full duplex operation too. Even years after it was released, it is STILL an exceptional card.
Must have something to do with your pc/mac settings/buffering. I run it on a 1.4ghz celeronM, and it kicks ***. Definitely something in your settings. Try using ASIO4ALL driver..that might help you.
