I’ve had this issue since using Cubase 7 and the latest versions don’t really improve upon it.
If I export my project to audio I get crackles in the mp3/wav created (44.1khz 16 bit or 48khz 24bit). I had a look here:
and saw the same problems, albeit on an older version and no real solution.
I already tried reducing the volume of my entire mix and the crackles are still there, so its no clipping in the tracks that’s causing this. I mainly use MIDI tracks coupled with VEPro & MIR.
If I have my audio device connected or not, no difference (X-Fi Platinum with Asio4All or Steinberg UR22 with Yamaha’s drivers), with the same effect on every buffer setting (currently 1024) (manipulating VEPro’s buffers also doesn’t have an effect). Cubase’s ASIO Guard, Power Scheme etc. didn’t affect anything.
I’m stumped as to what causes this or how I can fix this. I’ve been in contact with Support but so far no solution is in sight. I generally use Cubase 6.5 to export my audio because this version creates (almost) no crackles at all. I first thought it’s because v7 uses a new Windows Scheduling/Threading method , no idea
Main libraries/plugins used: PLAY, VSL, Kontakt, VSL Suite, VSL MIR
Does anyone have a clue what I can try?
Thanks in advance
