Studio one just worked perfectly for months but i had to reinstall my computer and now I'm facing frequent audio engine dropouts with the same computer, soundcard and software.
Here is the symptoma: very low CPU use (20%) that suddenly jumps to the red zone - not always at the same timing in the track. this is immediately followed by a loud noise and a frozen timeline, then after 5 seconds of loud noise it plays normally. Sometimes it gets worse and I have to restart Studio One because the play button or the spacebar have no effect). it happens both for VST instrumentrs and audio tracks. it happened this morning that even windows can't play any sound and I have to restart the computer.
i tried to increase the sample rate (it's now setup to 2048 samples), the anti-dropout is set to maximal and the treatment is double (64 bit). the sample rate is 44.1 KHz but the issue is still there. It even happens when I play only one VST instrument with no effect.
I've been using a thuderbolt UAD Arrow soundcard for the last 6 months (no problems until today) on a powerful Alienware computer.
Here is the configuration file:
|Studio One 220.127.116.11799 Win x64
|Microsoft Windows 10 Entreprise
|Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 10
|KXG60ZNV512G NVMe TOSHIBA 512GB
Everything (windows, soundcard, Studio one, VST plugins) is up to date
