There is a crackling sound when zooming in on a project

It seems like you’re experiencing crackling sounds when zooming in or out, regardless of processor load or plugin usage, especially in comparison to Cubase 11 where such issues didn’t occur, even with heavy projects. This might be related to audio buffer settings or other configuration differences between the two versions. Check your audio settings in Cubase 12 and ensure they match those in Cubase 11 to troubleshoot the issue.
