Re: Dropouts when recording through VB-Cable

I think I have figured out what the issue was / is. At first, the latency was too low, that's why I got 5 dropouts. After increasing the latency, the numbers of dropouts reduced to one and I was able to trace that one to a dropout in the source file. I have now redownloaded the album from Qobuz and ...

Re: Dropouts when recording through VB-Cable

I have now increased latency to 12288smp and I have indeed seen a reduction in dropouts. With a latency of 6144smp, I had 5 dropouts in the ca. 1 hour recording. With 12288smp I only had one. It would be great to find a way to get none. I am wondering if it would help to set the output of Roon to us...

Re: Dropouts when recording through VB-Cable

Here's a screenshot of the Control Panel. As my use case is not latency sensitive at all, what would be the maximum to use for a safety cushion?

Dropouts when recording through VB-Cable

After solving my initial issue of misconfiguring Audacity, I am happily recording from Roon through VB Cable to Audacity. When I looked at the recorded files in Audacity, I noticed that there are dropouts of around 0.1 second length at irregular intervals during the recording. They are not very freq...

Re: VB-Cable on Big Sur?

I had connected VB-Cable to Audacity at the other end. I have now found out that Audacity was set to 1ch (mono) instead of stereo. That seemed to throw VB-Cable off course.
I have now set Audacity to stereo and everything works fine.
Sorry for the trouble.

Re: VB-Cable on Big Sur?

Sorry that my screenshots before were not clear. I had to reduce the size and probably overdid it a bit. I have now added three jpg's that should be readable. The first one shows the settings of VB-Cable Control Panel when adjusted do 88.2kHz through Audio MIDI Setup. VB-Cable is set to 88.2kHz, as ...

Re: VB-Cable on Big Sur?

Thanks, I have now set the latency to 192k. However that has not changed anything. I still have Roon (the source) running at 88.2kHz, VB-Cable at 192kHz and Audacity at 88.2kHz. Audacity does not detect any signal from VB-Cable. To me this does not seem surprising, since VB-Cable is expecting a 192k...

Re: VB-Cable on Big Sur?

Hi Vincent Yes, I have a 2018 MacMini (Intel). The top screenshot shows the configuration BEFORE Roon starts to play. VB-Cable is set to 88.2kHz both on input and output. As soon as I press play in Roon (and Roon actually starts playing at 88.2kHz), VB-Cable switches to 192kHz both on input and outp...

VB-Cable on Big Sur?

I have a 2018 MacMini running Big Sur 11.3.2. I have installed the most recent version of VB-Cable. The Control Panel of VB-Cable opens up correctly. I would like play back an MQA file (which I purchased) with Roon and then record the unfolded MQA file with Audacity. I set up all the programs to 88....
