Hi,

Are you using Mixcraft 9.0 build 452? Do you get pops and clicks with other presets? Do you hear the pops and clicks during playback, or only after mixing down?

Hmm, I have MX9.0 build 452... Is there a new public build 453 update available?

Hi,

Is it during playback of the project, or only after mix down? Or both?
