Topic: Dual HDSPe MADI FX problem
I am having a problem with my dual HDSPe MADI FX setup:
Quite regularly one of the cards will suddenly delay its audio as though it is setting itself to the highest buffer setting.
My setup involves multiple hardware inserts spread across all cards. Quite regularly I will have a mix running using plenty of outboard gear and suddenly the vocals or other elements (whose equipment is inserted with the second card) will play out of sync with the rest of the mix.
Let's say I have a mix running and the buffer size is 256 samples. Reaper will correctly measure and report the delay of any inserted outboard gear. At 256 samples this will usually be a few hundred samples. Then, when the problem occurs, that same insert will suddenly shoot up to over 8000 samples when pinged.
So it appears that one card will reset/ignore/crash its buffer setting whilst still showing correct values in HDSPe FX Settings.
The problem can only be cleared by shutting down and starting up the computer. Sometimes it can be days without the problem occurring and at other times it happens daily.

I have one stereo pair of MADI outputs set up as WDM devices for native audio.
The card order is swapped in the global settings.
Power plan is set to Ultimate performance and never to sleep. Display goes off after 5 minutes and locks computer.
Is there a way to get the driver to log events or another means of generating debug info that might be useful in finding the source of the problem?
