PreSonus 1818VSL clicks and pops

Postby rbeach » Sat Apr 28, 2012 1:26 pm

I have been working with the PreSonus 1818VSL for about a month now. Long hard learning curve. And add to that I made the move from windows XP to Win 7 and new computer, so I have had issues. But I am getting there.
The one problem I have not been able to solve is the random clicks and pops on the tracks I have recorded. I am using Mixcraft 5 current rev. and never had this problem before on my old system. The noise is not in the track though, just thru the play back. Never in the same place and I here them when I record or play back the track. These tracks are acoustic guitar plugged in and over mics as well. The CPU meter never gets above 17 -18%, usually around 6% usage. I’m not on line, the virus software is turned off when I record, I went through the optimization guide, not sure what else to do

Which optimization guide -- Presonus's? What optimizing steps did you do?

The pops and clicks stopped when I changed my power option to high performance. Don't know if it will help you but it can't hurt.

In Win7: Start-Control Panel-System and Security-Power Options

I also used a free program called Autoruns to turnoff programs I didn't want running in the background.

Teljax has given excellent advice.

This is why I asked what optimization steps were taken. The ones he described are usually necessary for DAWs on Vista/Win7.

Another one I'd add is to disable C1E/Speedstep in the BIOS.
