ES9 USB C socket dropping connection

Post by mr_karlos » Sat Feb 15, 2020 7:02 pm

Anyone else have a problem with the usb-c connection on the ES9?
I frequently lose the connection between my Mac and the ES9 when patching around the ES9 usb socket. The right hand led goes out monetarily if i touch the cable. Then I have to re-select the audio devices in Live.

Is this a problem with the device or maybe the cable. Any suggestions welcome.

Could be either. Have you tried reversing the USB C plug in the ES-9's socket?

Reversing the connections appears to work. The connection into the ES9 seems more reliable using the plug that was connected to the MacBook. Strangely the plug that was un-reliable on the ES9 appears reliable when plugged into the MacBook's USB-C socket.

I have other cables throughout the house. I'll try those later today.
