So, recently my Tau has periodically stopped communicating with the base station once in a while. The lights cut out, and it goes dark for a few seconds and then comes back.
I thought maybe it was a loose cable, but that doesn’t seem to be it. Even if I wiggle it in the socket or try and smack it, it seems fine. But then I’ll turn or, change hands and the tau cuts out again. I can’t make it happen consistently however, so I’m unable to diagnose what is going on.
I’m thinking maybe I need a new cable, or something, but not sure if that’s actually what is going on, as when I actually try to mess with the cable deliberately, it seems fine.
When this happens, the light on the base station indicates that I am connected and power is on, and the software doesn’t crash out, and eventually it comes back.
This is a bit of a problem for live performance, so I thought I’d see if anyone has any idea what might be going on.
I think I am going to try with another computer, in case it’s something about the USB bus on this one.
