I have been using Cubase 8.5 pro for a few months
Today a strange Echo on my audio file playback has become very apparent
I attached a screen shot of a Kik I bounced and then I normalised the ECHO-ey audio that follows to highlight it for you to see
This was in an empty project with 0 plugins , FX or EQ
I went to my headphones to reference some drums and its was really annoying
I have noticed it on a few kicks previously but I just thought they were bad sounds
Today I realised it is on every sound
Needless to say I can not mix anything like this. I have checked with different audio files, restarted my PC etc. etc.
Changing ASIO drivers doesn’t help. Playing with project settings does not help
I have an RME pcie soundcard which should be good but maybe its on the way out as it is quite old
Can a faulty Soundcard affect the Cubase processing ?
The rest of my PC is solid as I built it myself
Instruments are not affected
Thanks for any help , this is driving me nuts
