I’m having an issue with my recordings in Cubase Artist 11. When I record my electric bass or my electric guitar a pop/click sound occurs and can be heard every 10-15 seconds which also briefly (miliseconds) interrupts my sound.
I am using a Scarlett Focusrite Solo 3rd Gen. This issue occurs when I use the instrument input as well when I go via a DI box using an XLR cable. My interface settings are 44.1 kHz and try to keep the buffer to 32 samples to have low latency when recording (I wonder if increasing to 64 may improve / remove the clicks/pops?).
There is no clipping by the way. The gain is set appropriately (always green, but may go into yellow if I slap my bass hard or I palm mute my guitar with hard strumming - both of these exceptions for the yellow gain do not occur when I get the clicks/pops).
The click/pop happens even when I am not using any plugins (i.e. just the raw sound).
I really don’t know what to do… I’d really appreciate any help. Thanks!
