Clicking sounds during playback

I am using dorico elements 5, and when i use playback i get a lot of clicking-laggy sounds during the piece, but when i export the audio file it is completely clear. It also sounds like that only when there is actual audio and not during pauses. I am also using noteperformer but other libraries do the same thing, also no i dont have the metronome activated. I dont know what do. I really like using the interface but if the playback continues to sound like that i dont know what ill do. Please help!

Hi @fotopoulos7707 , welcome to the forum.

To first get a better overview, please choose from Dorico’s menu Help > Create Diagnostics Report and post the corresponding zip file here.

And here a first general thing to try out: Increase the buffer size of the audio device and see if that improves playback quality (Edit > Device Setup > Device Control Panel)
Next, if possible, try a different ASIO driver.
