Since this doesn’t seem to be widely reported on the Web (if at all – so it can’t be a common problem), here’s a tip for anyone getting squealing noises when using a MOTU 896 audio interface under Mac OS X. A typical fault is that some applications, including iTunes, will output sound normally whilst others, perhaps Logic and even MOTU’s own Digital Performer. The answer is to launch the MOTU Audio Setup application and make sure that the Optical Input and Output are both set to “ADAT” – even if you’re not using optical I/O!

As always, YMMV – but this tip is surprising and reliable enough to mention.
