I get too, pops and crackles. They are very rare and random. The other day I had a sequence playing on a synth (basically a loop), FX from the H-8000FW, and all of a sudden I hear a burst of noise, the H-8000FW reboots and it assumes its former state. It scared the sh1t out of me!

On another occasion, it just froze, audio was muted, it didn't reboot and the sampling rate LED which was set to 96 KHz started to flash. When it stopped flashing, the audio came back. Thing is, nothing changed the sampling rate, there were no external clocks present whatsoever, just audio to and from the analog jacks, no fancy stuff here.

In the studio, these are not huge problems. But, in a live show?
