Default Problem Solved--Profire 2626 DSP Mixer buffer is locked on 64 Bits

There were some other folks who were having this problem so I thought that I would share my experience.

After upgrading to Mpowered 8.0.3, I started to experience an inordinate amount popping and cracking along with complete audio dropouts. Immediately i thought of altering the Buffer Size in not only Pro Tools, but the Profire DSP mixer as well. However, the DSP mixer simply would not change from 64 to 256 (where I like to keep it). I tried lots of different ways of starting the mixer so I could change it, but it never stuck once PT was opened. After weeks of waiting for Digidesign Online Tech support to answer some simple questions (they only anwered one), I brought my question to this forum. Once again, I got answers to some questions, and others were just left unanswered. Finally I just got frustrated and decided to uninstall 8.0.3 and simply install 8.0 and see if that fixes it. And it did. I'm finally able to save my DSP mixer settings and they don't default back to 64. The pops and clicks have pretty much all disappeared, and the dropouts have ceased to be. Hallelujah.

I don't like pooping on Tech support guys (I'm one myself) but Digidesign's consumer relations has kind of disappointed me. Unanswered questions are frustrating and I feel that these guys could have been more diligent. Is there something weird about 8.0.3 that makes this happen?

Anyway, this should be about helping folks fix their problem. If you've experienced these issues, downgrade from 8.0.3 to 8.0. It worked for me so I hope it works for you. -Joe

Who knows exactly but I did a clean install of xp and that fixed it. Running 8.0.3 cs2.
