Edit: It’s the Editing Cursor, not the Playback Pointer
I recently had to replace my Win7 PC, so I downloaded and installed Wavelab 18.104.22.1680 (32-bit). When I have an audio file open, the editing cursor starts moving on its own, even though it’s “stopped.” If I’m zoomed in along the timeline, the window will begin scrolling to keep the moving playback pointer centered in the window. This is in spite of having “Scroll during Playback” set to “Immobile View.” This problem makes it nearly impossible to make any kind of selection or begin playback at the head of the file. Occasionally, the pointer will move “backwards” in time, too, and its speed is independent of “real time” speed. It is not playing audio while moving along and an additional “real time” pointer appears if I’m actually playing the file.
I tried uninstalling Wavelab and trashing all AppData associated with it and then I reinstalled it. This did not fix it. I then tried installing the 64-bit version, but that also did not solve my problem (I prefer the 32-bit version as there are a number of DirectX plugins I like to use).
How do I get this fixed?
Here is my setup:
Intel Core i7-3970X CPU running at 4.1 GHz
32 GB of RAM
Windows 7 Enterprise with Service Pack 1
Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Graphics card feeding an Onkyo PR-SC5509 receiver for audio and third monitor via HDMI
