i just installed a new cpu and motherboard/graphics card. and now im getting random crackling and popping during playback. i use to have this issue before, but only when i was in a heavy intense cpu usage mixing session. so i would normally just put my buffer rate at 2048 and i wouldnt have the problem anymore. currently its set at 2048 and im still getting the crackling and popping here n there during playback. im mixing the same session, so its not like theres more plugins being run. and i upgraded from a ryzen 5 2400g to a ryzen 7 3800x as well as an added graphics card to make the new ryzen work.
im running windows 10 with this:
RYZEN 7 3800X
MSI X570 GAMING EDGE MOTHERBOARD
NVIDIA GeFORCE GTX 1070 graphics card
ALSO INCLUDED A PICTURE OF MY COMPUTER SPECS
It's very unlikely to have anything at all to do with the spec of your computer. Does this crackling end up in files, or is it just a replay issue?
so it seems to be happening OVERALL inside windows now. i tested it by just playing audio outside of audition in windows media player.. im using a presonus studio live 24.4 mixer as my audio source. i kno this is a audition forum...but any idea why this might be happening?
The first thing you should do (this will either eliminate or shift the blame to the mixer) is to try listening to the audio on whatever internal sound device you have, and see if the same thing happens.
