Q. When I record with my MobilePre interface I hear a very loud crackling noise

A. Brian Battles suggests this as a possible fix for MobilePre users:

If you are getting a noisy recording when using an M-Audio MobilePre USB interface with GarageBand try the following.

  1. Launch GarageBand.
  2. Open System Preferences>M-Audio MobilePre USB.
  3. Change the Latency setting to something different.
  4. Change the Latency setting again to whatever you want it to be.
  5. Go back to GarageBand and start recording.

You will have to do this every time you launch GB. You may find after recording for some time (has varied and seems to be a shorter time when there are more tracks and/or effects) the noise will return. I had one file start to create the noise every time I created a new track. If any of these cause the noise to re-occur, re-use the method above.

Also, being a USB connection, you may find that GB will respond more slowly over time during a recording session. Save your file (project), quit GB, re-launch GB, and re-use the method above.
