I recently got an AudioBox USB 96 Audio Interface and it came with Studio One Artist. I also bought a mic, MIDI Keyboard (Keylab Essential 61) and basically everything I need to record for now.
I set it all up and everything works great except for when I play a virtual instrument on the DAW. I have Analog Lab, so I first noticed this issue when trying out some of the synths, and a lot of crackling and noise kept happening when I was playing certain synths. It took me a while to realise that there were two things increasing the crackling:
1 – Playing the notes louder
2 – Playing more notes simultaneously
I increased my device block size to 2048 samples (the maximum possible). Although the crackling definitely did improve, it didn’t stop, especially when playing extended chords.
I don’t think it’s an issue with my laptop, as I have a Surface Laptop with Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD – 2 cores, 4 threads.
I’d really appreciate a response
