Default Re: HD Native Thunderbolt disconnecting from Ableton Live 10.x

I haven't tried it in a while, but it has been an ongoing problem with HDX as well. For whatever reason, Ableton Live just drops HDX and shows no audio device being selected. It is weird, as HDX seems to work totally fine with other coreaudio hosts like Reaper, or Izotope RX, or Native Instruments stuff.

My solution has been to just bypass it entirely. I run an optical SPDIF cable out of my mac straight into my Omni, and have the internal mixer setup to automatically deal with routing the signal to the monitors. It isn't ideal if you use outboard or multiple inputs in Ableton, but it works a lot better than HDX does!

Yup, i read the HDX problems in the forum, but wasn't sure if it was the same problem with HDN.

Thanks for the suggestion but that solution doesn't work for me, i don't have an optical out on imac pro, plus i need all the hardware i/o.
I got this system to solve my i/o hardware problems, instead of doing aggregate drivers but now it can't even run my simple production set-up with live. At least with the previous system i could aggregate all the soundcards, but since one of my converters is HD 16x16, i can't do it anymore since it doesn't have an independent core driver.

Anyway, i was just changing e-mails with support and trying a different set of drivers (didn't work) but i did realize something, it's connected with cpu spikes.
Each time there's a spike, the driver gets booted out of Live. It doesn't happen with other drivers, it just glitches.
