Ok I will try to explain as clear as possible cause this thing is driving me nuts. I use headphones and speakers. The clip is audible in both of them. The control room is off. I never use it. This problem only happens on low end sounds. Like explosions, orchestral boom kicks etc. I do video games and just finished a soundtrack with cubase. Everything went smooth and I was so happy about cubase performance. But then I tried to work on the sound effects and as i said I get clips on these types of sounds.
I read somewhere that this was a known issue back in the day but I had to ask if this still happens in 10.5. I tried importing the sounds to reaper and tracktion and see if I get any clips there. If that was the case then maybe the sounds had some problem and there is nothing wrong with cubase. Reaper and tracktion played the sounds fine. Which means that my gear is ok.
So maybe cubase doesnt like my interface for some reason, or cubase has a problem with lowend sounds.
I will copy the sounds to another pc that I make music and test cubase there too. Again this problem only occurs when I repeat playing the same file. If I change the position of the playhead and play the file, there is no clip. There is no strain on cpu. I dont use ssd by the way. But the disk meter doesnt peak at all.
The solution is to move the playhead every time I need to work on that type of sounds. The awful thing is if I keep the playhead there and then export or bounce the clip, the clip is audible in the render. If I move the playhead and render, the clip is gone. It really driving me nuts.
I really need to fix this cause I love cubase. It made my life so much easier.
