    I have a Core 2 Duo Mac with 3 gigs of ram that I'm using for Logic 9.

    I experience these little 'stalls' all the time. Not sure what to call it. I'll be working, and then everything will freeze. Usually for about 5 seconds? Then it'll spit out some audio, and I can continue as if nothing had happened. Things run smoothly and stable other than these stalls.

    I keep a close eye on RAM, so I don't think that's the issue here. I had been running out of ram, but I changed my workflow around and now usually have plenty of headroom there. I'm wondering if I have a dying sound card maybe?

    Anybody know what this kind of thing points to as a problem? Ways to find out what it is perhaps? Thanks.

    Have you got anything running in the background, Time Machine maybe?
    Check your console logs when this happens, it may offer some clues.
