I have a click and pops problem that has just shown up in my Logic Pro 7.1.1/Mac G5
set-up. I had recorded a MIDI track via my MIDI keyboard, to an N.I. B4 organ sample, and
that was clean and working well when I solo’d it to check its quality.
copied this MIDI track, to another in the arrangement page, and used the copy to run an
Ivory Piano plug-in to fatten up the B4 sound. But, accessing the Ivory sample with the
same MIDI information is giving me clicks and pops all the way through the song, it’s
not overloading by the way, the meters are comfortably peaking at around 2/3rds up the
So, I tried other Piano sample Plug-ins to make sure the Ivory software was
OK, and the same clicks and pops are there no matter which sample I use, Steinberg’s The
Grand, or EXS 24 mk 11, etc.
I then changed the outputs in my Logioc Audio windows
in the Environment page, in case the output going through my MOTU 424 PCI card were at
fault. The problem remained.
I then swapped the PCI Firewire outputs through my MOTO
24 I/O firewire interface around, no change.
I then changed the channels on my
analogue mixer that is being fed from the MOTU 24 I/O. No change.
I have checked
the MIDI info in the Logic Matrix to see if any random notes are in there, but there
I’ve run out of ideas ! Can MIDI itself be corrupted with clicks and
I am working Logic at 24 bit 96 khz for all my Audio recording, but I don’t
know that this could affect the Plug in Samples ?
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
