Why does audio glitch out during export?

When exporting a final mixdown, the audio cuts out briefly within the first second of the track. Originally, using realtime playback while exporting seemed to resolve the issue, however now the mixdowns are glitching at the beginning every time, even with realtime playback enabled. This problem persists when exporting mp3 as well as WAV formats.

I love studio one, but this is a fatal error for me. If this cannot be resolved I will be forced to move on to another DAW.

I have the same issue and I could not reproduce it consistently. For some projects, the export is just fine, for other projects there is an unwanted "fade-in" in the beginning.

EDIT: I have narrowed it down to one plugin: Black Rooster Audio's "VLA-2A Mark II". This guy introduces reproducibly the initial "fade-in" in the Export. Not so its predecessor, the "VLA-2A", this one works just fine.

So, it seems it's not S1's fault, at least not exclusively.

I haven't had this issue with Ableton, though, when using the same plugin. Never did it introduce an initial fade-in on export.
