We talked about this problem before a long time ago on the old forum but never discussed a fix that I can remember other than rebooting.

Ever have something go poof, you lose your audio, your Master bus pegs out and freezes at 666db, and you have to reboot S1 to get your sound back?

Well, it happened to me today in S1-V3. :x

I didn't want to save my project and reboot so I decided to try some things before I went that route.

I went in to "Audio Setup" and where it says "Internal Block Size" there is a checkbox that says "Lock".

Mine was checked so I unchecked it to try and change the buffer size to see if maybe it would clear the buffers and possibly reseat the 666dB problem.

Before I could change the buffer size it made a loud pop so I backed out of the screen and hit Play and everything started working normal again.

So if this happens to you try checking the "Lock" checkbox if it's unchecked or uncheck if it already has a check in the box. You can put it back to however it was originally after you do it.

This fixed the issue for me without having to save my project and reboot.

HTH,

Shane

That is interesting Bub and I don't dispute it either. On my older Win XP install of Studio One funny thing is I get more issues when that box is unchecked. It definitley prefers the checked or 'Lock' option instead.

Maybe now this has changed perhaps.

I would not mind knowing exactly what that 'Lock' parameter is actually all about.

I have just been the receiver of the infamous 666dB overload. Of all the dB's overload I mean 666 you have to be serious! :shock:

Anyway, Bub's approach did not work for me. What I did in the end was just save the document because you can still save even after this error has occurred. Then I just re-opened and all was well again.

Just for the record, that number is not dB, it is how MANY times you clipped.

Of course you are right. 666 is the number of clips. Interesting though Bub and I have got exactly the same number of clips though. Must be a certain fault condition that causes it and the same in various computers. I have rarely had this issue though. I may have done something weird just before it too.

Thank you for pointing that out. I always assumed it meant dB because it says "Clip / Peak Levels" when you hover your mouse over it.

While we're on the subject of that section, does anyone know what the two little buttons do to the left of the stereo/mono button?

The one on the far left says "On/Off" and the middle one turns into a slider when you click on it but neither one seem to do anything.

If I am thinking of the same thing, that is the metronome on/off and volume control.

What also MAY work in this instance is changing the audio device to "None", then back to previous. I think either process resets the audio engine and frees it from lock-up.

I've been able to get out from under it by cycling the audio driver, which seems to reset the audio engine. Choose Windows or some other driver, let it set, then switch back to my MOTU driver.

That's one thing I sometimes miss from Cubase, the "Reset Audio Engine" button or function.

OK, so I cannot seem to use the fat channel plug-in as it repeatedly causes the 666 error. Trying to reset the buffers lock or changing the audio i/f did not fix it for me. Also, if I save, close and reload the song, and try again to use the fat channel, it causes the same error again and then crashes the DAW completely. I am running latest version of Studio One Pro.

You'll know when you get it as S1 will lose all sound and you won't hear anything until you fix the problem. I've had success with changing my audio interface as well, but I must try Bub's fix next time. Thanks, Shane.

Just so everyone knows (I thought we covered this in the past) the number is usually the number of overs. However, there is one condition where the number is actually an error code.
666 is an error code for a plugin that has faults or broken down in its communication Protocol with S1 as the host.

In some cases that can be unjammed by Shane's procedure which actually causes the engine to adjust to the change in buffers. In other cases no.
This is because one of the plugins in your song is the root issue and that finding the failing plugin should be the next step.

just to add caution to the wind... if i am not mistaken i was the first to get that 666 thing way back when and i didn't even notice in the pic i posted on the old forum had "666" in RED lol but shane did lol and pointed out to us all lol

the caution i put forth is to turn down your monitors or system volume before doing the 'reset'... that POP which i have heard a few times is enough to damage speakers if it is all turned up so be careful. cheers
