I have spent countless hours over the past 3 months trying to troubleshoot this problem. Any insights would be much appreciated…
I consistently get intermittent glitches (could be as much as 15 minutes apart, as little as a minute) that are normally, but not always, associated with latency spikes. i don’t even have to be playing anything for the spikes to occur.
I have read the various articles for computer optimization, and have followed the advices given, such as disabling firewall, virus protection, internet connection, visual optimized for performance, and the like.
DPC Latency Checker is used to visually monitor real time latency. LatencyMon is used to record events and stats.
LatencyMon reveals one consistent culprit: - Wdf01000.sys - Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime - This thing will spike out of the blue, but I have not been able to find what Wdf01000.sys does that could cause the latency spikes. I wish I knew how it was involved with the processing chain. I can’t even figure out what it really does. I fugure some process much be using it intermittently.
I also get random Hard Pagefaults, but they don’t appear to be causing audio problems.
Could there be a setting in Cubase that might cause the glitches? I have the Steinberg Audio Power Scheme activated, as well as Multi Processing.
My computer is all up to date, Windows 7 totally updated, current BIOS, all current drivers and program updates.
