5700XT + Ableton Live DAW = Audio Crackles
I have :
Mac Mini 2018
3.2 GHZ i7 6-core
64 GB Ram
Focusrite Clarett 4Pre Thunderbolt (Audio card)
Powercolor AMD Radeon 5700XT
When the eGPU is connected, I am experiencing audio pops & crackles while using Ableton. When it's not connected, everything runs fine.
If you google, Ableton & 5700XT, you'll find many other clueless users who can't figure out where the crackles are coming from who are both on PC and Mac, so I think the issue really lies with 5700XT and Ableton.
In a couple cases, PC users were able to change PCIE in their BIOS from Gen4 to Gen3 and reportedly stop the crackles, but aside from that I could not find anyone who had a solution.
I'm posting this to see if there are any other ideas. And to ask if there is a way I can switch my PCI slot from Gen4 to Gen3 on the Razer Core X hooked up to a Mac, so I can try that solution as well?
