Hello, so I did notice that cracks and posp appear when I switched off the internet on my laptop. At 1st I thought it was a driver but no luck with my Fast track pro and Tascam 16x08. I have the same result with no hardware using ASIO4ALL. Please help

Thank you

Pops and Crack can be due to a multitude of reason.

- It is suggested that you optimize your PC

- check your power settings

- disable any sort of CPU throttling

- check any background apps that may be taxing your PC

All versions of Windows:
-> Click "Change plan settings" for the currently selected power plan
-> Click "Change Advanced Power Settings"

You will need to restart your computer after making the changes that are outlined in this guide.

Note: If this is a laptop then change these options for "while plugged in".
