Phonic Firefly 808 U - Strange Issues

Post by Zergei72 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 8:23 am

okay ... ;

i'm trying to record 8 tracks on my iPad 2 + Phonic Firefly 808 U .

There are sudden peaks in the signal here 'n' there,
which also are shown in the recorded waveforms + audio / very loud WHITE NOISE .

the phonic also shows as 14 in device,
though only the 8 analog inputs are supported !?!

also i get drop outs in the audio signal (no audible monitoring, metronome not playing)
sometimes it goes away by changing the recording buffer-size,
sometimes i'm forced to dis/re-connect the audio-hw .

i know this all could be due to the fact,
that my powered usb-hub is a little faulty / damaged ;
BUT it works 100 % OK with my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB .

So i don't think that's the case .

OK ;
that's my share about negative feedback (:

now the wishlist ;

1. meter / tempo - track
2. count-in

It's possible that it's the hub, but it also could simply be an incompatibility between the Firefly and the iPad. If you're able to make it work with a new hub, please let me know. Otherwise, we'll remove that interface from the list to be safe.
