I just picked up a tascam US-1800 and installed Cubase LE 5 that came with it. I’ve imported one stereo file I need to add some keys to, and when I play it back I get intermitttent static-y pops. When I check my CPU usage it’s barely at 2%, but keeps redlining when it makes the noise. The noise only happens on playback but I’ve noticed that even when it’s not playing back the CPU overload light blinks occasionally.
I’ve got the most up to date Tascam drivers installed, and I\ve messed with the latency settings to no avail. I’m barely making the computer break a sweat so I don’t understand what’s going on.
I’m using a laptop with an AMD quad core A10, 8 gigs of ram and windows 8. I’ve switched it to high power mode as well.
Any ideas what it could be?
Thanks in advance.
