Topic: FF 400 + MAC OS X Lion : Troubles when using higher than 44100 Hz
I know that there are few existing post on this subject, but no one relating about a possible sample rate relationship.
I recently update from Mac OS X SL to Lion 10.7.2.
I'm using a FF 400 since 2 years and have never find some troubles before this update.
I'm was using FF 400 in 96000 Hz sample rate (mixing project under Ableton Live 8.2.6) before the Lion update and everything was OK.
To be sure of my driver installation, I've totally remove all components (using RME procedure find on this forum) of my previous version of the RME FF 400 drivers and apps. Then I've up date to the very last one (V2.97 with firmware 1.70).
The trouble appears as soon I as use it more than 44100 Hz sample rate, I get the next troubles:
The rotary encoder on the front face don't send any message to the Mac (e.g.: main volume) after few minutes of use...
The sound (if we can say "sound") of any video on youtube or internet is really bad : noisy, some cracks, blips etc ...
Randomly, the red light of "host" become red => No sound anymore => Must reboot to get sound !
MacPro1.1 Quad 2 x Intel core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz

Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2
RME FireFace 400
DAW Ableton Live 8.2.6
I precise, (one more time), that I was using 96000 Hz since 2 years before the Lion update, and all was working fine with the same configuration.
Does anyone could help me?
