Hi,

What mode are you using in Mixcraft's Sound Device preferences? WaveRT? ASIO?

What's your playback device?

What's your latency setting?

Also, if its a laptop, check your power use configuration settings.

Microsoft has a "knack" for reverting to default settings that don't benefit us DAW users after updates, reboots, crash recovery......
Stay in tune, Mark

Hi,

Set your latency at 5 ms and see how that goes. If you still get pops, try it a bit higher. Remember that each millisecond is only one one thousandth of one second.

Also, as Mark suggested, check your Windows power management setting and make sure you're not in power saving mode.

allrighty but like i said this is my favorite settings. they have been working like a charm for 3 months and after last nights update its all poppy while using mix craft. ive also changed the setting like you said raised the latency (which by the way is no good when recording vocals) but it still pops and it make the recording go way out of sync. and im using mix craft 7 btw... just bummed i had been working on 2 songs for about a month and was ready to record the vocals last night bu this problem just started after update.. i really enjoy using mixcraft because Its rocked the low latency and never gave me problems with my usb microphone but as of today i cant even use it... and i have checked my power mode

Sometimes after a Windows update removing and reinstalling your interface drivers helps.

Otherwise try switching to another audio source if available and compare and then switch back.

okay ive tried so many thing even rolling back to before the update... when playing music or recording in mixcraft it is all messed up.... recording is full of sync and latency issues and even when just playing back tracks it looses contact with speakers and squeaks pops crunches ..its all wacky now.... so when you say reinstall a driver which are you referring too... i noticed also in this update they added a feature to my valume control called spatial sound i dont know if that messed up my audio processing but i dont remember that ..but honestly im devastated whatever happend last night has made mixcraft unusable for me now ...AT FIRST i thought maybe uninstalling the reinstalling mix craft might help but instead i just downloaded the trial version
the new mixcraft and it does the same thing.

PLEASE give me any tips that may help ... even when i just play through my eternal monitors in my display its the same so i know its not my speakers or my microphone ,,its eternal lol i need help its like using my old computer again ...and tis beast was taring this program up and doing all that i threw at it with no hiccups untill last nights update

Did you by any chance save your project after things went wonky (been there, done that :roll:) ? If so maybe one of the backups might be working better.

OKAY new info here.... I just saw a video on you tube explaining Using exclusive mode gives you low latency which I've been using I've been using the lowest setting without any problems no crunchy know pops but then after the update there's crunching pops so my question is what could be chewing up my CPU now that my computer is updated and not allowing Me to record the way i was just last night

Hey Lunar_Larry.

Take a look at this thread (if you've not already done so):

Take a look particularly at the end or so (some of my posts).

Let us know how you get on for the sake of interest.

Regards,

Dale.

As they say it is the nature of the beast. You are going to have to directly monitor your vocals through your audio interface.

HI,

That's the problem - no low-latency audio interface, just a Realtek audio chip.
