Hi,

I am using a zoom g2.1u usb interface to go into my macbook. It gets recorded into garageband.

Everything works fine for about a minute or two. Then over the speakers comes these strange crackles and pops, sometimes with added latency...



Whats the problem? What can I do about it? And does anyone else have this problem?

This seems to be a problem with GB and usb interface. I get the same with my mixer and I have to save and restart every time. I have searched and search and yet to find an explanation.

If you find an answer please post back

i run into the same problem, especially during playback after recording. but when i export to itunes, the pops arent there. maybe i need to clean my playhead (joke).

I dont know if its the same thing or not but when i am playing through a garageband file with a pretty big file size it lags up sometimes and makes some weird noises, maybe during recording its lagging up or something
