The stuttering audio problems returned late last night, even despite the UC-33 being off and unplugged. Heck, they continued even after I removed ALL of the MIDI gear. So that’s a problem. – until I noticed some nasty red flags on my user folders when I tried to save a track within Reason. Out of curiosity, I rebooted from the Lion Recovery disk and reset the user permissions of my recording account. The results? Not only did the audio NOT continue stuttering, but I was able to get my devices working. Via USB. Even the “officially” legacy Roland GI-20. Just a quick device creation in the Audio MIDI Setup utility, and it’s performing as expected. The problem traces back to when I was messing about and moving my user profile as part of an attempt to Boot Camp Windows 8 on my new dual-drive Mac Mini (again, don’t try it – doesn’t work all that well in theory and not at all for me). So I’m up and running at full strength again and . . . recording a track my wife says sounds like Katy Perry. Perhaps I should not have been so effective in my troubleshooting efforts.
