I'm running Audition v13 on Windows 10. 

 

I've been experiencing popping and crackling on playback since I installed Audition. I read this post on the forums (https://community.adobe.com/t5/audition/popping-and-crackling-sounds-during-playback/td-p/9906750) that attributed the problem to MME, so I changed the setting to ASIO; the audio still crackles and pops.

 

I've attempted to use other audio files to the same effect. The issue doesn't seem to be consistent: whether or not the audio pops varies per playthrough. 

 

The crackling/popping is not present when I export the project (in whole or in part) as a .wav file.

 

(I'm very new to Audition, not sure how most things work)

If it's not present on exported files, then probably all that's wrong is that Audition's latency or buffer size value is too low. Try increasing it and see if the problem goes away...

I don't seem to be able to edit my posts here, so I'll comment any adjustments.

 

I'm running on an i7 with 16gb ram, so I don't think my specs are an issue AFAIK

increasing the latency to 100 *seems* to have cleared the problem, thank you!
