Pro Tools 2018 and 624 AVB (Thunderbolt)

Postby bprendie » Mon Feb 12, 2018 9:52 am

Hello all,

I'm brand new to the forum, and also new to MOTU in general.

I Recently bought a 624 Interface, and a Stage B-16 for my recording studio. I'm using the B-16 for its mic pres and using AVB to connect to the 624. The 624 is connected to my Audio Workstation via Thunderbolt.

My Workstation is Windows 10 Pro, Xeon E5-2680 2.5GHz (12 core/24thread) and 32GB RAM.

The issue I'm having is that when I launch Pro Tools 2018.1, the 624 sometimes doesn't appear. When it does, if Pro Tools need to change sample rate for a session, ProTools goes "not responding" as I watch the Sample-rate change on the 624.

When it does work, I need to run my buffer size at 512 at 48k in order to not receive any clicks in my audio. For comparison, I was able to run my Behringer interface via USB at 128 buffer on 48k!

Are there tricks to optimizing the 624 with Pro Tools? Should I ditch Thunderbolt, and simply try running USB3?

Any help is hugely appreciated - I currently have a quite expensive, functionally useless setup.

Thanks!
Bob

Although I hope someone will chime in with advice for you, your best bet is likely to be MOTU Tech Support. This forum is not an official MOTU site. A phone call to MOTU may provide the answers you seek.

Thunderbolt on a PC is a newer thing; there may still be PC driver issues. As you note, you might want to try the USB approach, at least until you work the TB issues out. Good luck!
