Topic: HDSPe Madi card struggle
I have been using the old PCI Madi cards (two in one system) for a while now. These have had a few specific issues causing clicks and pops. Hoping that the new HDSPe cards would be our saviour, I have now several times tried to install the new HDSPe cards without them working properly.
The problem is that there is some digital "fizzy" (think soft drink) distortion on any audio signal.
Both cards are up to date according to the FUT and running 3.0.53 drivers.
So the cards as they are now are totally unusable.
Going back to the old PCI cards all work but still having the clicks and pops forcing us to switch the driver between autosync and master a bunch of times to get it working properly again.
I have now invested in four frigging cards and none work as they ought to!
I'm not a happy RME user at this time and Iknow there's a few of us.
What will you do to fix this, or should hi end users go to SSL instead?
