I’ve never been able to successfully stop the peaks, consistently anyway, no matter what I do.
I’ve already put my foot in my mouth once a few weeks ago and announced on these forums that I had solved the issue (Cubase had defaulted to 32bit processing precision, and I switched it to 64 which seemed to solve it for many hours of testing), and then 2 hours after making the post the peaks and audio pops came back.
I’ve tried every buffer setting from 96 to 512, and the peaks don’t seem affected by buffer size in my case. I’m really frustrated here and support hasn’t responded back to me in 2 weeks now, after asking for “my help in troubleshooting and sharing feedback with them”.
So we just bought a Maschine mk3 and are producing more outside Cubase I guess. If this isn’t resolved in a timely manner, this will damage my 20+ year confidence in Cubase in a way that may never be recovered. I waited years to buy a new pro license, and… I guess I chose the wrong time? No idea.
