  1. So here is what it gave me, which is indeed the case. I'll dig in further on this, but I am fairly confident I have done everything mentioned. But I will investigate further - But it appears as though it is ACPI.sys
  2. So with this, how long should I run it, should I actively be doing stuff on my computer or leave it alone while it runs?
  3. This is a computer I built myself. I installed Windows 10 pro, and then turned off some stuff (can't remember what all I changed though).
  4. Ok - an update to this issue. I recently got my hands on a MOTU M4. It does the same thing. So, the computer in question is: OS: Win 10 Pro Processor: Intel i7-9700k 8 Core Processor HDD: 3 total drives - 2 Corsair MP600 Force Series Gen4 500 GB M.202280 NVME SSD and one SSD RAM: 32 GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 I have uninstalled (properly) the M-Track Quad. I have also (in addition to getting new card) have: * Turned off USB power Management * (attempted) to update my PC's network adapter driver (no new NIC available) * Installed latest device drivers * Turned off USB power management * Disabled user account control * Adjusted my processor scheduling to Background Services * Adjusted my PC's power options for high performance * Made sure my PC doesn't disable/suspend USB devices * Turned off 'real time' Windows Defender protection * Turned off my screen saver (obviously) * (Tried) to update my PC graphics driver (it is UHD 630 though, which had no updates) * I also tried removing duplicative VST files. It did not break anything, but did not fix anything either * Turned off indexing on my primary audio drive (where samples are run from, where Cakewalk saves to) Yet the problem persists. Any additional things I could/should try? I will try uninstalling and reinstalling all software associated with music production - any particular order I should reinstall them, or does that not make a difference? Only other thing I could try is reinstalling Windows 10 and starting over from scratch. A dramatic option, but one I am not ruling out. Just not sure if that would make any difference though, and would hate doing all that work to end up in the same place I am now. EDIT: I have also disabled the onboard sound card through BIOS, ensured SpeedStep is disabled and C-States are turned off (which did not remediate the issue).
  5. Alright, I did discover one issue. I had not yet activated Melodyne which I use on the vocal tracks. So I fixed that, and the problem persists. I will try a different sound card, as yeah... last driver was released a while ago. I'll keep you all posted.
  6. No, no 'Audio Engine' message gets displayed or anything like that. I have the latest/greatest version of Cakewalk. I also only generally run default cakewalk/native instruments 'komplete' suite, which are all installed and activated - but I'll take a look to see if I can find any I may have missed in regards to the install to make sure none are in demo mode.
  7. I am running into audio dropping out when I attempt to either: Play a cakewalk project (any project with any complexity) Record a track in a cakewalk project This is on a new computer, replacing an 8 or so year old computer. That old computer was able to play those files fine. The new computer, even when I 'freeze' the tracks in the project, it is unable to keep up/dropping tracks periodically. I have tried all of the following steps outlined in the article at and more: https://www.cakewalk.com/Support/Knowledge-Base/2007013007/Audio-Dropouts-Clicks-and-Pops-When-Playing-and-Recording and https://help.cakewalk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021858253-I-m-experiencing-latency-or-audio-dropouts-while-recording- Increasing the 'safety' of the M-Audio M-Track Quad/increasing the buffer time. I have increased the Hard Disk Buffer Size to 1024. I have turned off Windows Defender real-time scanning, turned off any/all miscellaneous services running, etc. I have turned off any/all other sound cards on the system to ensure none of them are interfering in any way. I have tried replacing the Aud.ini file from my old computer to my new computer. I have installed/reinstalled the sound card and am using the appropriate Asio setting in Cakewalk for it. I have reinstalled Cakewalk. The new computer in question: Windows 10 Pro with an M-Audio M-Track Quad. The M-Track Quad has been installed with the latest drivers (pulled from the site https://www.m-audio.com/support/download/drivers/m-track-quad-windows-driver-v2.9.64). I have no problem opening up any of my files, and they all appear correct. The only difference is my old machine was running Win 7 and this one is Win 10 Pro. The new machine is (obviously) much more beefy than my 8 year old computer - and it ran fine on that one. Any thoughts?
