  1. It's a wired network adapter. The problem has come back (albeit less severely) while the card is still deactivated. Is it possible I'm having some kind of electrical issue with my PC? I'm having a hard time figuring out why all of these issues would simultaneously come up. When the network card is disabled LatencyMon is now identifying Wdf0100.sys (a system file added by compulsory Win10 update last year) as the issue. I wonder if I'm heading for some kind of system failure and these performance spikes are the indicator. (Also tried running the command prompt system integrity diagnosis, which came back clean). Going to keep digging through the troubleshooting suggestions above. Thank you all again!
  2. Well, that does it. It appears to be my Realtek network adapter driver. If I uninstall it my PC immediately passes the LatencyMon with flying colors. If I reinstall it, the doom sets in immediately. Well well well. Not sure what to do here. Disable or uninstall every time I run audio? Buy a new network adapter? edit: as indicated by the "processes" image above.
  3. Okay, I've tried rolling back the update, reinstalling drivers, no dice so far. The LatencyMon suggestion however seems to be yielding some results, even if I can't interpret them myself. Anyone care to take a crack at it? Here's the text. "Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks, or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. At least one detected problem appears to be network related. In case you are using a WLAN adaper, try disabling it to get better results. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. [have already done so in BIOS, not sure where it is in Control Panel]. Check for BIOS updates. [There is a much more recent BIOS, going to try installing now] Here are screenshots of the Drivers and Processes page results. Would anyone kindly point me to what might be suggested by the results here?
  4. Hello again Promidi! Thank you very much for your help. My videocard is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 635. Driver date 5/22/2019, driver version Yes, I've turned off the audio. Thank you for the suggestion re: the power handling of the card. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have done anything with this particular problem. Any other ideas? I really appreciate everyone's suggestions!
  5. Whatever the problem is seems to be making spikes in both of those, yes... I just tried disabling the Ethernet connection and the graphics card simultaneously, and there was no change, still there. Then tried uninstalling the graphics card entirely and resetting...and it went away! for about 5 minutes of playback. Then back to it exactly the same as before...
  6. Here's a snapshot from the Task Manager CPU usage screen. Each of the "humps" is a pop/crackle etc. I don't know if it's because it has a slower refresh rate than CoreTemp, but the spikes LOOK much less severe here, but still visible each time https://ibb.co/7jg9zNQ The only visible CPU fluctuations via Task Manager are within CWBBL itself, all else zeroed out or close to.
  7. Do you mean the Bandlab update? I'm not seeing other versions available in the Assistant interface...
  8. Okay, I was enthusiastic too soon.... It's BACK! That seemed to be a temporary fix. Okay, I opened CoreTemp to see if maybe the issue was something related to my CPU. Temps look normal, and usage is at about 24 percent during playback, BUT on every crackle and pop there's a visible spike in CPU usage-- up to 36 or 40 percent. And then back down again. Somewhat rhythmical in nature. Anyone have any idea what might be going on here? Some background process grabbing CPU during playback??
  9. Okay, believe it or not this was relatively painlessly SOLVED... by peeking at my post history on the previous forum! It's the insidious NVIDIA Audio driver, sprung back to life after the Windows Update! GRRRR. Here's the post: http://forum.cakewalk.com/Solved-Super-glitchy-playback-after-Bandlab-Reinstall-m3793399.aspx SO! If you have an NVIDIA video card, and you're having this issue, it might be an audio driver conflict. Check out the details at the previous post. Thanks for your help everyone!
  10. Hello Cakewalkers! Just updated my Windows 10, and upgraded to the newest CWBBL and BLAss... and those dreaded clicks/pops/buzzes are back again. Super tight bottlenecked CPU-style behaviour but the CPU usage meter is reading around 20 percent. Seems to get worse when scrolling/graphic display is engaged. Any ideas? Anyone have a link to an updated version of that Win10 audio optimization guide that floated around on the previous version of the forum? Scarlett 18120 Gen 1 (up-to-date driver) latest CWBBL Win 10 latest Intel i7-4770 @3.4GHz 24 GB RAM NVIDIA graphics card Thanks for your help!
  11. Very wise and generous advice, Tezza!
  12. Hello Noel! I'm trying and failing to get the slip stretching to work on multiple clips. Even with Ctrl-Shift held, and all clips selected, it'll just slip-stretch the one. Any guess what I might be doing wrong?
  13. Hello CWBBL folks! First off, thank you for an amazing product. I've been a Sonar user since 8 and have been blown away by the new stability of the program. Quick feature request--are there any plans to incorporate some FFT-based goodies? How about a spectral editor, a la the good but awkwardly-implemented Spectro VST? I've found that tool to be invaluable in eliminating oddities from recordings-- coughing, a clipboard drop in an auditorium, etc. Similarly, there are various free de-noiser plugins (the Reaper suite) that also use FFT to eliminate noise. Once again, although there's a tool already available, the implementation is...lacking is a kind way to put it. I can only imagine what a BL-designed denoise tool, with the slickness and stability of the new version of CW, would look like. I realize these requests might not fit in with the direction BL is heading! Just thought I'd toss out the ideas as one happy user who is always greatful for more All the best, Sean
  14. Noel-- thank you SO much! I don't know if I ever would have found that shortcut. I've used the slip stretching on single clips but hadn't been able to tease out how to get it to fly with multiple selections. Seems very straightforward. Thanks for the help! I'm very interested in the maths behind these processes. Going to do some reading about the different types of algorithms now.
  15. All these stories about the Fender Bassman are bringing back memories ... man, those things can kill ya. Got zapped recording at a really nice studio (RIP Chromasound) where the Bassman was next door so it could operate at the typical jet-engine levels. Problem was, it was on a separate power system from the main room, where all the rest of the gear was, including a SM58 for scratch vocals, were. Stepped up to that badboy with my guitar plugged in-- ZAP from about an inch or two away, that sent be back and to the floor. I feel very lucky it wasn't my bandmate/cosinger who was shocked (she was about a foot shorter than me, seventy pounds lighter, and had a metal lip ring at the time!)
