Computer is equipped with i9900, 32 GB RAM, SSD, Windows 10 V1909. My SL3/16 has newest Firmware, I am using the newest version of UC. Playback through ASIO-drivers brings on crackling sound, indepent from sample-buffer, also when just using one track or one VST-instrument. I tried that also on my notebook-PC - the same effect. Interesting: the WDM-driver seems to work perfectly.
