Default Re: Loss of Playback Engine Mid-Session

Hi Obsidian,

Maayybbeee. But...

That wouldn't explain why the MacBook still sees everything.

Here's the hardware cabling:
Focusright Clarett 2 to Thunderbolt 3 Dock via USB-C.
Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C to the MacBook Pro.
(Also in to the Thunderbolt 3 are Ethernet for Source-Connect, iLok dongle, and Firewire 800 for Glyph external HD)

If it was the cable from the Clarett to the docking station, I'd expect not to see the Clarett recognized by the Mac OS, play audio from other apps, or see it register input on the Focusright Control app. But System Info sees it.

If it was the cable from the Dock to the MacBook, I'd expect neither the Clarett nor the Dock to be seen by the computer. But they are. Just not by Pro Tools.

I'd also expect to not read audio from the external HD. But I can obviously open session folders and play individual audio files directly outside of PT. So data is being sent and read.
