Today there is something weird that’s happening with N5.5 on my Mac. When I open a previously saved project and play it, I hear significant crackling sounds. It does not matter whether the project contains just 1 track with no VI/VSTs or 30 tracks. The sound however goes away after 5-10 mins but comes back occasionally. ASIO meter shows around 30% utilisation and the LED it lit in light orange color. I am not streaming any samples but all audio tracks from a separate 7200 RPM SATA drive (OS is on SSD).
I tried setting up audio priority ‘boost’ in VST settings but that didn’t help either.
I can’t believe if this is supposed to be happening due to high CPU utilisation or disk bottleneck, as I can more than 40 tracks in Logic on the same Mac.
Has anyone else observed this behaviour? I’d much appreciate if there are any potential fixes to this issue…
