Make sure all background processor hogs such as Antivirus, Antimalware, Anti-spam, automatic defragers as well as internet accessing program are either removed or disabled on your computer. These processor hogs cause overuns and underruns causing data loss which appear as clicks caused by discontinuities in the data stream.

    I use it with mac and PC and the same problem in both ........... DIFRENTES YOU PROGRAMME OF AUDIO.
    Yesterday I recorded directly to the mac from a presonus studiolive 16.4
    16 simultaneous tracks WENT without problems.

    The mac is a "macbook" 2,1 ....... 3ram you x 10.4 and connection to Internet.

    The PC is not connected to Internet, and I use neither antivirus nor anything it .......

    Does someone suggest some another option?

    OK... the next thing is to check the power supply, but that is internal... Another thing is to make sure that ALL your connected equipment is powered from the same source or receptacle. Ground loops affect different devices different ways. Clicking can also be caused when the processor resets itself for any of several reasons. It is unclear how this is connected. You mention optical, and then BNC which is coax. If you use coax, how long is it? If long is it terminated properly? Beyond this I would go to factory support as you probably would not have the test equipment necessary to troubleshoot this problem.

When my Korg d8 power is on 'working' message is followed by Init>?, I cannot go beyond this. How to solve this problem? And can I change the internal Hard drive.

It is asking for confirmation that you want to initialize the unit. The manual doesn't say anything about this... but you should try pressing the "Yes" button to confirm you want to initiallize the unit or press no if you want to staart without initializing.

Hi, I have a korg D8 recorder and that i use pretty regularly.One day i switched it on and it was completely dead - no lights, nothing. I've tested the power supply (the one it was supplied with ) and...

Most common cause are failed connectors. Power inout jack failures are common. Beyond that, tracing out the power input for a failure would be in order.

When I try to record an audio CD on the internal CDRW from a mixed down song in the VF160 it records it, but adds a horrible, cyclical "hiss" (very loud) over the recording rendering it useless.

I haven't personally used this equipment, but 9 times out 10, a hiss or noise problem is due to damaged or incorrect cables been used.
Check your cables.
Check your gear. If the inputs are TRS (1/4") the make sure your cables are to. This goes for any connection your recorder: balanced cables.
If the inputs are unbalanced, then you would use TS (1/4")

Crackling and popping during playback/recording, latency issues. Using Firestudio Project, Windows 7 and Cubase 5.

Turn OFF all resource hogs such as Anti-virus, Anti-pop-up, and other background programs. Disconnect all internet access such as wireless and Ethernet service programs. All these resource hogs and programs for instance that keep track of when to run scans just cause interrupts of the servicing of the high speed audio grabbers. Your machine should be BARE of all these hogs.

With my pc, the presonus firestudio tube got solid blue light but it makes audio cripples, with cubase it can't make the asio multimedia setup. i have latest driver and firmware

Check your latency settings and try something higher that what it is currently set to. 1024 samples is usually a good starting point for most newer PCs.
