Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Thanks for the tip. I've usually just been using the following for my iPad Air 2:
1) use external charging cable to slow down the charge
2) turn iPad to flight mode
3) turn iPad to 100% brightness

Will try out turning off updating apps in the background to see if it improves things too.

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

I have exactly the same problem that Untilted described (iTrack Dock + Air 2). To rule out Auria as a part of this problem I connected a fully charged iPad Air 2 to the dock, powered it up and ran the Tonestack 3 app (which also uses a lot of cpu). I got the same interference noise. This is a real ...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Weird.. I've been using an iPad Air 2 with an I track dock and Auria pro for a year and have had none of these issues and quite like mine. I'm on 10.2 now, still have these issues unfortunately. I believe it's got to do with the trickle charge as the iPad battery charges towards full capacity. Auri...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Update: So I've followed this up with Focusrite, and they have been able to replicate this issue on their side, iOS 9.3.2, with Auria Pro, on an iPad Air 2. At this stage, interference noise is heard when the CPU under processing load, or when the iPad is fully charged (with a MIDI track present in ...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Auria is capable of using a lot more CPU than other apps, so it's possible you haven't noticed this with other apps. Rim While this probably is the case, I'm not so sure that the 'CPU bursts' from an empty project with 1 midi track, 1-2% max CPU usage is really pushing the limits of my iPad in this...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Hey Washboy, Thanks for your explanation, I'll leave the mic/speaker processing on then. So it's as if the presence of an Auria MIDI track causes CPU bursts, which result in RF interference when connected to the dock. Yes, it certainly seems this way. In that sense, perhaps I should expect this beha...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

Excuse me chiming in :) What is your 'Menu -> Settings -> General(tab) -> Built-in Speaker/Mic Processing' setting? This should have absolutely no bearing on your issue but I'm suspicious by nature :wink: Hi there, thanks for your question. All observations that have been reported so far have been ...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

So I tried something new, which was this: I started a new project, with nothing connected to the itrack dock except my headphones. With battery at 100%, I added one mono track, then one stereo track = no pulsing through headphone out, or through hardware. However, once I added 1 midi track, the puls...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

So far, I've been using two different earbuds, with a 1/4 inch adapter. I'm currently charging my iPad up to 100% before trying to see if I can replicate the issue with 1) another 1/4 inch adapter, and 2) another set of headphones- my sennheiser hd280 pros with its own adapter. Update: I've been ab...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

And the fact that it changes with the brightness of the backlight, or the batter power tells me that it's a hardware issue, no doubt about it. The issue is weird, alright... Thanks for your explanation, but I'm not so sure that this is a hardware issue only. The thing about this is we also need to ...

Re: Focusrite itrack dock "screeching"

So after much pain, the retail shop sent me another Focusrite itrack dock, which was helpful. Unfortunately I can't tell whether the issue is hardware or software (Auria pro). I had originally thought that it was the Focusrite itrack dock only because of the hardware pulsing, but my current hypothes...
