Digital "tic" noise when first playing effects

Post by creativeforge » Fri Nov 13, 2020 8:03 pm


I'm wondering what could be the cause of that. When I listen to a mix, when a track with effect is about to play, a slight "tic" noise is heard. If I stop the play and start again, it doesn't do it. It gets annoying although it doesn't print on the mixdown.

I'm using Mixcraft 8.1 Pro Studio, Windows 10 Pro 64, Intel Core i7 @ 3.70GHz, Coffee Lake 14nm, 32.0GB Dual-Channel @ 1200MHz on a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB.

Is this a bug that has been fixed on later versions? Anyone can hear it too?

Hm, can't say I've heard this one before...

What is your audio interface? Installed latest firmware/drivers?

Using ASIO?
