Everything about your signal chain sounds correct except for the mixer to the pc. It sounds like you want to use your mixer as an interface, in which case you'd want to use the USB to connect to your pc, not the speaker output.
Once connected, you'll need software on the pc to be able to record. You could go the freeware route and get Audacity, but there ...
Solution: Send a MIDI SysEx "reset all" message.
What worked for me:
Download MIDI-OX for Windows or KMidimon for Linux. I use Windows so these steps will continue with MIDI-OX.
Start MIDI-OX. Go to Options->MIDI Devices. Select your MIDI input ("E-MU Xmidi1X1 Tab" for me). I actually selected Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth for my MIDI output, but I don't ...
At First, slhck's answer had solved my problem which is the same as yours (thanks slhck!), however, this was still not ideal, because I had to go in and change the sync source every time I turned my Saffire 56 on.
After talking with Focusrite Support, I found a more permanent solution, which I will share with you:
You need to remove your Audio MIDI Setup ...
One of the more common causes of this kind of problem is contamination from dirt or debris at the point where the exchangeable capsules and the mic body connect. One should be sure that the entire area is scrupulously clean.
This is an extraordinarily high impedance part of the circuit, and a noisy leakage path can be caused by contamination that can't ...
If you can replace it as simply as others have mentioned its worth a try (if the manufacturer allows it). Some other things to try that I have found helpful with strange static issue.
If you are using an interface that has its own power source but you are running it on USB/Firewire Power (usually can be done with smaller interfaces) try using the dedicated ...
it's Always a good idea to ground your equipment, audio-related or not, in your case, grounding your mixer probably gets rid of the hum, but also makes it safer to use (if for example the body (which I'm guessing is a conducting material) is being put under a current, it won't shock you because it'll redirect the power to the ground instead).
I'm pretty sure this is something related to the way you use Pro Tools.
Make sure you do not have additional auxes and other outputs to the master channels, which are not active during bouncing.
Make sure you have your master fader at 0 db when bouncing to disk (you should really not use that as a volume control, but instead control volume post output).
I have found out the problem, I will share this with anyone that may run into this in the future. It was a simple problem yet I could not notice it at first. The table I had my turntable on was vibrating from the speakers, thus causing the stylus to shake all over the record.
I have experienced the same issue, including just yesterday preparing for a live performance, and thought the unit was broken. Apparently based on your post, it is a bug in the 1x1 itself.
To resolve the problem, unplugging the 1x1 and re-inserting it usually rectifies the issue. Very annoying... This effectively resets the unit.
This exact thing is happening to me. I tried updating the drivers, but that didn't help.
The only consistent feature that seems to take the lag away is to unplug the USB device, wait at least 10 seconds, then plug it back in. Once plugged in again, it works like a charm. Having the device plugged in during boot-up slows it down for some reason. I'm ...
