Does anybody know how to resolve the intermittent static problem when recording on the Mac using Garageband 10.0.1 on a Mavericks MAC and using Apogee JAM 96k? I've tried every configuration possible (different sample rates, different bit depths, removing effects, changing guitar and interface cables etc...) to no avail. Cannot get ride of this annoying static.
This was happening to me too with the original Jam and Garageband 2 with Yosemite.
In Preferences->Audio/Midi, I deselected Jam as the input, then selected it again after a few moments.
Changing the bit rate from 24 to 16-bit in Preferences also helped.
Earlier, I was receiving cyclical static whenever I played a note- my first solution addressed that for me.
I think changing the bit-rate addresses the intermittent static that the OP was actually referring to. I mixed them up because they both sounded similar.
