Distortion Noise when Opening/Closing Plugins on FL Studio


I use the UR22-mkII and the Yamaha Steinberg USB ASIO driver in FL Studio. However, whenever I open or close a plugin or VST while having a mic input selected, I get a short feedback. I’ve tried physically muting the microphone, so there is no actual feedback going on somehow. So my assumption is that this has something to do with Steinberg ASIO.

I’ve talked to the FL Studio support, and they’ve basically told me to just use a different audio driver; the problem with that is that using any other driver results in a latency with which I can’t record vocals.

This is a video link where I demonstrate the issue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8dodsiazhjn1k3g/Plugin_Distortion.mp4?dl=0.

I just wanted to ask whether any of you has experienced something similar and whether there might be some tips of tricks?

Thanks in advance!
