[Mac Pro 5,1, 10.12.6]
For months now, my audio interface (Apogee Duet 2, USB-powered) seemingly randomly cuts out, causing my speakers to pop loudly, then power cycles indefinitely.
These drop-outs are not obviously tied to any activity on my Mac--it could happen when I'm checking email on...
I have OSX 10.16.3 running nicely on the following system, with the exception of a few issues.
My hardware specifications are:
Asus P8Z77-V (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77V/specifications/)
Intel i5-2500k (integrated HD3000 gfx)
16gb Corsair 1600mhz Ram
First timer build w moderate electrical / electronic experience;
I need to build a music workstation I can run Logic Pro on.
I'll also be using an Apogee Duet
What are the requirements and hardware needed?
