Spin Doctor Problem

Question

I bought a new mac minni in 2011 to replace my old 2005 mac mini but my spin doctor (version 2 it came with my ADS, Instant Music setup) was not compatible with the Lion OS on the new one so kept using the old mac minni for digitalizing my old vinyl records and burning on CDs.

 

Then my old mac crashed and died so bought a refurbished old mac mini that is just a little bit more advanced than the old one (the old 2005 minni was Tiger OS, the new one is Snow Leopard 10.6.8).

 

The old Spin Doctor (version 2) downloaded OK onto the new (used) mini and opened alright and recorded from the Instant Music hardware but when I play back what I have recorded the audio is not smooth and accurate but has skips and "hiccups" in the music.

 

Sometimes that happened on my old Mac too but usually when I sent the recording to i tunes and played it back and played it back there the "hiccups" and skips were gone.

 

Now they are still there even in the final recording after transferring to i tunes and so not usable.

 

Anyone know what I might be able to do to fix this?

 

Is there some other program on my new (used) mac that could be causing a conflict or is there a slightly new version of Spin Doctor that might work better (since my operating system is newer used mac)?

 

Any info would be appreciated.

 

Thanks...

CD Spin Doctor and Toast 11's Spin Doctor X are no longer usable. Spin Doctor X was garbage from the get-go although it barely worked in OS 10.6. The fact you got any recording is a plus and I can't think of a reason there would be the hiccups. Search for Final Vinyl and see if it can record the audio properly. If it also has the problem it may be an issue that your Mac's system needs some repair such as is done with DiskWarrior or Disk Utility.

I have used Spin Doctor 6 (part of Toast 10) for years with no complaints. Now that I have upgraded to Snow Leopard, I cannot get audio tracks that I have edited to properly go to iTunes. Not sure what to do. Any suggestions?
