    Question Garageband Porblem - Crackles and Pops
    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?

    Specs:
    ibook G4, 17 inch intel imac
    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
