Studio One 4 Professional 126.96.36.199729
The audio stops playing and the playback/tracking line starts to stutter. It seems to jump back a few milliseconds and then act as though it is playing through without audio for a few seconds before jumping back again. It is slowly moving forward in a 'two steps forward, one step back' kind of fashion. I've tried changing Dropout Protection settings and Device Block Size and in either case it fixes the problem for a few seconds before it cuts out again. This happens even with as little as a 4 bar looped sample .wav file. It seems to happen less at lower Device Block sizes (starts happening within a few minutes at 16 vs within 15 seconds or so at 256) The CPU is not peaking, the PC is capable of running Studio One. With a few hardware upgrades along the way, it's run it since Studio One version 2. It regularly runs software development tools and video games. I'm running a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with the latest driver updates.
