Please edit your post, and delete the Crash Report after the first 10 or 12 lines. Not many people here can read them, and the length discourages people from scrolling down.
A couple things you could try:
Delete com.apple.audio.coreaudiod.plist and reboot.
Remove the AKAI drivers. The OS can operate many USB and FW interfaces without third party drivers.
Thank you, I will try your suggestions. I don't see the .plist when I search for it. Do I need to turn on some sort of system file view permissions?
I was 50/50 on the posting the whole crash file. I saw some other guys get hammered on because they only included portions so I decided to post the whole thing. I'll cut it short though if you think it will improve response numbers.
Steve, the partial crash log is an unofficial unwritten rule around here. The cause of the crash is usually near the top of the log anyway. The hardware profile is at the bottom. That can be helpful some times.
But, most of the contents only make sense to software engineers.
Search for the .plist without ".plist" in the search criteria.
Or, look in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons
Best of luck,
Look, I just edited my post after you replied to it, John.

Not necessarily. See above.
Hmmm. Since I'm running 10.7.x, and you're running 10.8.x, perhaps the core audio preferences have been renamed or moved.
I suggest you look in the /Library/Preferences folder, and see if anything looks like com.apple.coreaudio, or similar, and delete that.
Generally, no harm comes from deleting prefs. Some plugs and apps store their authorizations, but usually can be reauthorized easily. You can zip or move the prefs, if you are wary of deleting them.
