Roland 2x2 Quad- Capture has crackle (solved)

Recommended Posts

My computer has several sound devices i.e. integrated sound, sound on graphics cards, ASIO, and virtual cables etc.

Lately my Roland capture audio interface has developed a crackle....

It sounds like a record playing with slight scratches on it.

Like digital speckles.

I have disabled most other devices and tried updating my drivers.

It goes away when I monitor my sound on my integrated sound. It only happens in my Roland Quad-Capture.

I rendered down a song in Cakewalk on my Roland Quad-Capture and it is not in the sound file it is only there in the playback when monitoring in with the quad-capture..

When I play the file on my other computer it is not there.

The crackle is in Windows media players when I use them also and in Cakewalk when I play audio only in the quad capture. 

The Quad Capture's buffer size is set to nine out of ten.

I might expect crackles it if were set to 5 or 6.

I am running an I9 with an rtx 3090

Could the Quad-Capture be on its last leg it is about 8+ years old.

It sounds like maybe a driver conflict and one of my hard drives seems to be busy all the time.

I disconnected the internet and it still kept clicking away. It is not onedrive because it is up to date.

Not sure where to go next to fix this.

I will try plugging the Quad Capture into my other PC

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I am not sure what the problem was but I plugged it into a different USB port and the crackles went away.

Quad-Capture is fine I guess. (I love this audio interface)

The hard drive that seemed to be busy all the time has turned out to be a wobbling case fan. It is loud and sounds like a hard drive constantly clicking.

I will be replacing it soon...
