Nothing but Static in Bandlab

Recommended Posts

When I open my projects, I am getting nothing but static now.  This has never happened before.  I just did the upgrade that was available.  I suppose that has something to do with it.  Any help or suggestions are most welcome.

 

Thank you

The good news is that it probably hasn't anything to do with the upgrade.

"Static" is often used for many meanings, so it's not a particularly helpful description. Do you hear garbled playback, or a steady hiss?

Are you using WASAPI or ASIO, and what are your buffer sizes?

This is an excellent point--the need for more descriptive phrases for labeling auditory anomalies (maybe even a companion listening guide with audio snippets).  One time I reported something that I had to describe as "It sound like two audio drivers competing for the same audio signal" which is very different from the sounds of "mismatched audio sample rates," both being different than garbled playback and steady hiss.  I know I have audio of a couple of sample rate mismatches--somewhere in some files.

Thank you for responding, yes I hear gabbled playback, and not hiss, but static.

Static to me says; it would be a skipping sound, so fast, probably related to buffer settings

Thanks for the response, It is grabbled audio and cracking sounds.

32 is  a very low buffer size.   I  get crackling at  512 if I have a number of SampleTank samples loaded and I've got a new , fast PC with an RME AIO   interface on a PCie card.

I bet  it disappears if you raise that 32 to  128 or 512.

Static/distortion is a symptom of the DAW not being able to produce audio fast enough for the driver at that buffer size. Try raising your buffer size to something higher like 64 or 128 samples and check again.

@Frank DeFede Are you sure that you were previously running with the device set to 32 samples? That is a very low sample size and not many drivers handle those smaller sizes. Also which version of Cakewalk specifically did you have installed previously?

Please attach a screenshot of the Device settings page from preferences.
