i’ve suddenly started experiencing very loud popping sounds whenever i move things about on the screen. sounds like sparks or static popping close to my audio equipment. these aren’t dropouts – playback and mixdown are both fine, but bizarrely, the popping happens whenever i move things in the arrange window [including slip-editing clips], maximize cubase, or re-enable a previously-disabled track, for example.
sometimes i can ‘resolve’ the issue by quitting cubase and restarting it, but this doesn’t always seem to work.
i’ve been running cubase on the same machine for several months now without this issue, and i’ve made no changes to the configuration during that time. the problem isn’t confined to any specific project. also, it seems to happen only with cubase ; none of the other programs i use, including audio editing software, causes these pops.
has this kind of thing happened to anyone else before ? any ideas about how i could fix it ?
