  1. Thanks for the responses, it helped a lot! This is what I did (I copy pasted from the answers): Location of Cakewalk Projects. The new computer has 2 HD's: a SSD with the operating system & programs and a SATA for data. I experimented with the location of the Cakewalk projects and it turned out that putting them on the SATA drive performed better (counter intuitive, I know) Boost the CPU. There are several ways that achieve the same result: Start + run "control powercfg.cpl,,1" (without quotes) and set CPU Min and Max to 100%. Set the power plan to "High Performance power plan" Note: I did not have any settings in the BIOS to alter Tune Cakewalk. In preferences | Audio | Configuration File adjusted the following: EnableSetThreadIdealProcessor = False MixThreadCount = {number of cores minus 1} (This really made the system run smoother) All together it makes my new system as good as my old. Still wondering why it isn't much better, but I can live with the result so far.
  2. I do not know how to undervolt the CPU, but I changed the power plan to "High Performance power plan" and I removed McAfee as well. It looks like there are some improvements, but the Audio Engine Dropouts keep coming. What bothers me is that I didn't have to do any tricks with the old computer, but now I have to...
  3. I recently bought a new computer to boost loading times. However, the new computer gives constant Audio Drop Outs and hickups sounds. Both computers have (as far as I can see) identical Cakewalk setups (I checked all settings one-for-one) and I use the same Focusrite Scarlett 20i18 3rd gen audio interface. On both systems I have updated evertything to the latest drivers. All my projects are at 44.100 Hz and 16bit. I cannot think of any reason why a 6 year old computer performs better than a brand new 'beast'. Much appreciated if someone has some thoughts on this or some directions to solve this.
