This problem does not occur on 2015 or 2017 Macintosh systems – just the 2018 systems equipped with a T2 processor. It may also be related to system power management, as one user reported failure disabling it to resolve the problem. But either way, there are periodic audio drop-outs and failures when attempting to perform audio processing over the USB bus using a number of professional tools.
Apple, for years, has benefited from the advantage of being a custom hardware designer – namely, that you can loose a shiny badge labeled "Custom-built" on the equipment you sell. But the downside to building your own equipment is that when things fail, the problem lands squarely on your own. These audio issues appear mostly or entirely unique to Macs with T2 chips. Assuming that 's true, it would mean Apple didn' t perform due diligence on its own equipment or it knew and shipped the hardware broken. Given what it pulled with the iPhone 6 Plus, either is possible. But the end result is that the company that once went with "It just works" as a motto for its hardware and software is slowly acquiring a very different reputation, particularly with regard to how it treats its professional customers.
