I am new to this forum and I have a big problem with my Cubase LE4.
I have a bass pedal Zoom B2.1u and use it via an USB interface with my laptop. I have installed the newest ASIO drivers for my bass pedal. The problem starts when I try to play the recorded sound of my bass guitar. After some time of playback (say 30-45 sec.) the sound gets sort of choked up. I can hear some clicks/chops/noises and after few seconds it disappears. It comes back periodically after the same time (30-45s again). Sometimes the problem appears even during the recording and it suddenly turns off the recording with only the playback still going.
The problem is, that if I try to put the original song on top of my recording (to make a song cover) the timing of my playing is changed because of that sound interferences and I am not able to fix the synchronisation. The beginning of the song is ok, but only till the first interference, then it’s all messed up.
I tried changing the buffer sizes from 64 up to 2048, setting different sample rates, installing different ASIO drivers (ASIO4ALL) but none of these helped. I ran out of ideas what might be causing this irritating problem.
If anyone has any clues what else I could do, please help me.
This is all my hardware that I use:
Dell Inspiron N5110
CPU: i5-2410M 2.30 GHz (turbo boost up to 2.8 GHz)
RAM: 4 GB
GPU: Nvidia GT 525M + Intel HD Graphics 3000
HDD: 500 GB 5400 RPM
Everything runs on Windows 7 x64 (Home Premium)
I set the latency of the ASIO driver to 20ms (max), since I do not need the recording to be perfectly aligned (I always do it manually).
Also, trying to record in different audio software (Audacity) I have the same exact problem.
