I think I’ve determined that the Google Play Music app on Android has no background services. Maybe that’s why it is so jittery and prone to error; There is no overseer handling things.
What do YOU think?!
I would like to see a more responsive, intuitive, thoughtful engine behind my music player.
Wave RT (Wave Real Time) is Microsoft’s new audio driver model for the Windows family of operating systems, including Windows Vista and Windows 7 (now in beta). Windows Wave RT support is now shipping for all MOTU FireWire and USB2 audio interface products, including the UltraLite-mk3, 828mk3, 896mk3, Traveler-mk3, 8pre and 828mkII-USB2 models.

This is probably old news to a lot of people, but I originally used my MOTU 828mkII with a Mac Pro, so was unaware of WaveRT. Checking this box in the MOTU Audio Console seemed to get rid of some clicks and beeps I was hearing running Windows through my MOTU.
I was still getting some beeps, although much fewer. I increased the “Samples per buffer” from 64 to 1024 and it seems to have improved things. I don’t think I’ve heard any beeps since, about an hour ago.
