My Edirol FA-101 has recently started cutting out after a variable about of time in use, e.g. either after a few seconds or a few minutes. I'm only using 2 inputs, numbers 1 and 2; playing backing music into 1 and my electric drums into 2. I thought that the drums may be coming in too hot, but I've made sure that the meter never reaches red... the problem keeps happening though! The input does register the sounds coming in but the outputs no longer provide the mix.
The software control is off and all settings are as normal for when I'd use it with no problems.
One thing is that I'm using it without the computer connected; I usually use the 4-pin firewire connector. Any chance that could affect it?
