I am using a PlayAudio12 with two laptops for playback and multiple software midi instruments for live performances. The automatic failover is happening multiple times per set, switching me over to B rig at seemingly random times, even though nothing seems to be wrong with A rig - no crash or freeze.
Setup uses Ableton live 10 on two brand new 2018 MacBook pros, clean. CPU usage maxes out at around 35% when higher resource softsynths are engaged.
Using Lifesine on A rig, with its own audio track within the ableton set. There are no midi clips or anything that should interfere with lifesine, and no other audio hitting PA12’s output 13.
Also, unlike a previous poster, I am not closing and loading sets. The ableton set stays loaded, in session view, and I launch each song with its own scene. The failover is sometimes triggered right when I launch a scene, but sometimes also in the middle of a scene or even when the session is stopped with nothing playing! When it switches over, the A rig is still running fine and I can manually switch back to A easily.
Cables and connectors are all tested, tight and secure. Firmware up to date.
Is this perhaps caused by tiny CPU hiccups interrupting Lifesine? Should I increase buffer size? Maybe a faulty usb connector?
appreciate any ideas and suggestions, thanks
