Sorry if this is not the correct place but... has anybody had audio problems when two different audio capable applications (let's say Google chrome and any DAW) are up, on a mac, when you have only one audio interface connected to the mac and configured as the default output for any application? Even If only one application is sending audio, as soon as you start a second audio capable application the first app starts to produce 5 seconds of audio artifacts every two or three minutes.
This problem does not occur when you don't use the audio interface, so my first bet was opening a ticket with the interface vendor (PreSonus) but after several months and dozens of emails still nothing.
My current workaround is to configure the internal speakers of the mac as the default audio output and only the application I do need to use the audio interface, my DAW, to use it.
It is not a perfect solution because I can not hear every audio source with the best quality but at least I don't have the audio problems.
I wonder is this an expected behavior or it is a real problem?, I don't want to buy another audio interface and then experience the same problem again.
Thank you for your patience and sorry for my english.
