My devices/interface in Gear [NEW!] Posted April 5 On 3/21/2021 at 11:37 AM, TracingArcs said: .... I have a M Audio Fast Track Pro which has given no trouble for 10 years. Now however I have dropouts, sputtering, etc not only in Cakewalk, but in Soundforge, TRacks 5.... I therefore think my M Audio has had its day.Its drivers are from 2015 and worked no problem on W10 until the h/ware upgrade (unless you know of some miracle cure)... If you were on Win10 before with no problems, then the Fast Track drivers should not be suddenly misbehaving with the same O.S. Something else on your new system (not related to your interface drivers) is conflicting with something else. Try these for starters: Disable power mgmt stuff in the BIOS (If you're comfortable navigating the BIOS). New systems have a lot of crap pre-installed. In startup, disable everything you don't recognize (Nothing here is critical, you can easily undo them). Temporarily disable wi-fi and anti-virus. Run latencymon to identify any background tasks that are taking up lots of resources. Connect your interface to a different USB port. The Fast Track is USB2, so stick with that over USB3. Let us know how it goes!
