Hey, quick problem here. Was hoping someone could help. Really appreciate it.

I'm using Cakewalk Platinum on Windows 10 64 bit with An Apollo Twin Duo USB. I'm getting a fair amount of static on small sessions without much going on. Like for instance, when I run a soft synth with two plugins on it,

Same thing with recording analog instruments. 

The buffer size on the Apollo is 128. If I go down to 64, the static is worse, if I could up to 256, there's too much latency. 

My sample rate is at 44100

I don't know whether or not it's the Apollo, or Cakewalk. 

Thanks.

This isn't static, this is a symptom of your buffer size being too small for the CPU load. 

You've not given any details about your PC configuration, e.g. CPU type / speed, but I suspect:

(a) Your CPU is too slow ( or your power configuration isn't set to maximum performance ? ) and/or
(b) The plugins you're using are too CPU intensive for recording.

Its quite common for people to disable plugins during recording in order to reduce the buffer size/latency.

Another thing you can try is freezing tracks to free up CPU load.
