Garageband/Logic Pro 8 sound issues

by laudasolo / May 26, 2008 3:54 AM PDT

I got the following computer new for Christmas:

Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac7,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz

It also has 4 GB of memory. It is running in Mac OS X v. 10.5.2
I have an Apple wireless keyboard and mouse. I also have an M-audio 49-e Keystation, and an M-audio pre-usb pre-amp.

My problem with both Garage Band and Logic Pro is that when I am playing back a song, the sound will turn off. This seems to happen at random; I can't find anything that makes it do it consistently, although sometimes it will cut off if I move the mouse when the song is playing. The program keeps playing most of the time although sometimes it will lock up. I can only get the sound to return by closing and re-opening the program.

This sound problem started when I added a USB turntable that had Audacity as its software. I saw this problem on the Audacity troubleshooting site and did what they said to fix the problem. It didn't. I completely removed Audacity, but still have the problem. I got an error message the other day in Logic that said my MIDI and Audio weren't synched. I found how to fix that in the Logic manual, but it did not fix the sound problem.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for any help you can give me - this problem has made both programs un-usable.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
