Had a midisport - that caused crashes. So went out and bought a Motu midi express128. Guess what?

At first the crashes occured when using an MCU attatched to the motu - particularly soloing tracks. Today just having the thing hooked up while working with the mouse caused repeated crashes. So turned off the MCU - still crashes. Finally unplugged the USB cable to the Motu and no more crashes. But I need a Midi Interface that Acid doesn't barf all over every time I try to do something. Any ideas?

My midisport works absolutely fine. It has never cause a crash on me. I assume whatever was crashing the midisport is also crashing the MOTU. Perhaps it's something about your USB setup.

I'd recommend going firewire. Get a firewire audio device from M-Audio, Echo, PreSonus, etc. They all make them with MIDI ports. I have an M-Audio FW-410 and a PreSonus FireStudio Project and they both work fine.

Thanks for your reply.

Regarding the midisport - Peter replied in an eairlier post : I have verified that the MIDI Sport drivers hang and never release upon a crash. This is a driver bug that we notified MAudio about. 2+ years ago. (There are other non crash related scenarios that can also cause the MIDI Sport drivers to hang and force a reboot.)

However, I'm intrigued by the thought that it might be my usb set up. I've got a asus pk5c motherboard (and an intle q6600 cpu) and am runinng xp pro. Where might I look to change the usb setup?

You probably have the latest driver from MOTU?...I had to get that for the Midi Timepiece.
I'm not sure about the Express, but I had to be sure about my input and output outing, so as not to create a loop...which brings crashes. Plus I'm not terribly Midi savvy,

best, Din

I've consulted the mout people who can't see why there's a problem. I've checked the cables/connections - ok. Reloaded the driver. Just crashed again. Here's the dump report. I wish I could read these things. I would certainly appreciate it if anyone could:

Martin, this may be totally off base, but I was getting a lot of crashes when I installed 6.0d, especially when using the Media Manager. Even using the mouse in the project window would cause instability.
I recall uninstalling and reinstalling Acid without the Media Manager and I've had a much better experience. Occasional crashes only.

You can deselect Media manager in the preferences and see if that helps. This was months ago for me...

Cheers, Din

I've actually done that. My latest thing is to take away then readd vsts. This may be it as it's been stable so far with just acid plug ins.

From the look of the dump, some plug-in appears to be causing this.

It appears that a plug-in on a track is causing this. Specifically a Waves plug-in. (RVox.dll)

What plug-ins are you using and where are you using them?

That's the one! I've been using it on track level but took it out and so far no problems. Sorry for the hub bub.
