My experience with the GoXLR has so far been awesome, that was until I upgraded from Intel to AMD in January I noticed that my audio would start “clicking” or “crackle” when doing anything that was CPU intensive.
After googling there were a few suggestions:
- Changing PCIe 4 → PCIe 3
- Use USB 2.0 instead of 3.x
- Reinstall GoXLR drivers
Unfortunately none of these could fix the issue, and it has been so bad that when I zoom in on a file in Photoshop the audio would cut out for each zoom step. Or when using OBS it would completely crash my audio output, so for now I had no other choice than to switch to a different interface.
I’ve contacted Thomann, the shop I bought the GoXLR from and apparently they have gotten a few reports of this already. It seems to be an issue with the CPU buffer size.
Fortunately I can report that the Focusrite Scarelett 2i2 is working flawlessly on my X570 AMD system.
Has anyone else experienced this or found a fix? Please do share your experience!
