I have Studio one artist 4.

Whenever i create a song that have several tracks the daw begin to create pops and clicks (or maybe cracking/crackling) is the right word) when i play the song and when i record new tracks. It seems that midi tracks especially provokes this. When saying "several" tracks it should be added, that i am talking maximum 20 tracks as i have not yet made songs with more tracks than that.

I can add that the CPU performance meter spikes when this happens.

I am working on a lenevo ideapad Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8300H CPU @ 2.30GHz   2.30 GHz
16,0 GB RAM
Windows 11 64 Bit

I know the pc is not some insane gaming computer, but it seems odd to me, if crackling sounds only can be avoided by investing in an even better computer, as i remember the recommended computers for studio one matches the capacity of my pc.

Is there anyone here who knows how to fix the crackling issue?
