Audio file causes popping when opening Cakewalk Project

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that if I add/create an audio track in my Cakewalk project,  the file starts making a loud popping noise when I open it.  After it's opened, it sounds fine, but just don't understand why it makes that noise when opening.  Anyone know what is causing this?

Two things come to mind,

1. A plugin on your master bus may be causing this - try bypassing FX before adding the audio track (either by pressing the "FX" button in the control bar, or just bypassing the FX bin on your master bus).  If this solves it, then you can narrow it down by enabling the plugins one by one until you reproduce it.

2. Cakewalk is stopping/starting the audio engine. Some drivers create a popping noise when the driver is initialized. Making sure "Always Stream Audio Through FX" is checked, and "Suspend Audio Engine When Cakewalk is Not in Focus" is unchecked should ensure Cakewalk keeps the engine running:
