My audio stream has begun to do some audio skipping and I believe is the stereo tool, I'm running Nicecast on a macbook pro 2011 13" with 4mb ram. It was running since march 2018 24/7 without any problems. Any suggestions????

How do you route your audio from Stereo Tool to nicecast?

In the I/O (Normal Output) part of Stereo Tool I have on Device ID : Built-in Output (Core Audio 32-192khz) Volume says 0.00db (100%) Buffer size/Diversity Delay 1,0000sec and Stream restarted after BUFFER OVERFLOW is like halfway thru.
In Inputs on Display synchronization it says: Synchronize with "Monitor output"

It's not doing it now so I have to assume it's a memory (ram) problem since I get a Sound Card Error message that says "Normal output: Stream restarted after BUFFER OVERFLOW. Should I upgrade my macbook pro from 4mb of Ram to 8 or 16?
Also I notice there's a low latency output in stereo tool, can I use this to monitor me while I'm "Live"? how I should configured and did I need another external card to listen? I would loved to hear myself fully processed while I'm live talking in the air.

Thanks for your support

Amount of ram will not help since ST does not use much memory. Dual-Channel memory will help.

Buffer overflow just means that too much data was going out which the sound card could not handle. Not memory related. We only allocate a few seconds of audio, which should be enough.

Best question I can ask is: What changed? If it worked well for half a year and now it suddenly doesn't, something much have changed.

Low latency: I don't think it's going to be low enough on a Mac at this point. It might be, I'm not sure... On Windows you can get down to 5-6 ms, which is definitely low enough for monitoring. I've never really tested this on a Mac though...

Hi, the only thing I have change is the output which I gave a little more volume that's it. Can I send you my preset so you can take a look at it to see if it needs to be adjusted audio allocation you mention here?
My email is luiggiberrios@gmail.com.

Thanks

This isn't preset related... Maybe a Mac OS X update? They appear to break stuff every time... (Windows 10 is bad with updates, but Mac OS X is extremely bad).

Could it be that your Mac is getting too hot? It could be worth a try to clean the fans.
