    Hi Guys…
    need your help – we┬┤re just on tour trying live recording for a production but ran into problems with dante.
    connected quit well with 1 GB … stable and cool
    configured to 16 bit on virtual Soundcard…all good
    configured ins and outs at Dante controller.. all good
    got all 32 channels we need … all signals available & good
    start recording – runs fine for approx. 17 minutes – then stops because of harddrive timeouts.
    we use all latest drivers and SW from dante.
    tried with 2 different systems … 1 laptop with win7 and samplitude.
    Stops with NO error message – just stops.

    also tried on a mac pro with logic – also alternative with protools.
    on any this configurations we ran into the same issue … after 17 minutes the system stops.
    ProTools shows message : https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/384500_471187586235820_1464540695_n.jpg

    “then stops because of hard drive timeouts”

    It seems logical to check the hard drive. I never use an external hard drive for recording, just directly to the internal one, most stable.

    So, it has nothing to do with Dante, so why would you deliberately switch to 16-bit recording when you can have 24-bit?
    Never had any problems to record 32 channels float with a mid-market laptop. Succes!

    found it !!! unbelievable…
    the thunderbolt ext. drive was not formatted properly.. just right out of the store… after reformat the drive… it works !!!
    It has files on it and you can use it, but not in Thunderbolt speed.

    It will transfer regular files and stuff but has a big problem while getting written constantly. runs until the last buffer overruns, then stops.

    so now everything works fine. tested also with a simple firewire ext and a USB3 external… all worked.

    wouter..the 16bit is just because its more rockn roll :-)

    We’ve had similar problems in the past recording 64 channels to a Mac Pro with Logic. It ended up being a combination of two problems. First, we were maxing out the write speed on the drive. Second, anytime the bass player would hit a fat low note, the recording would immediately stop with a write speed issue. Vibrations are bad news for mechanical hard drives.

    We ended up switching to solid state to solve the problem.

    We’ve had similar problems when we are set up next to the monitor desk and the engineer would turn on his wedge, we found the snare would park the drive.

    We had problems with Glyph, Seagate and OWC at this festival. Fortunately, we were doing redundant recordings so we had everything. Since we have gone to RAID SSD.

    Contrary to a lot of posts/articles, they have been plenty fast enough to record 64 channels at 48/24 during all of our tests.
