Audio artefacts
« on: December 09, 2014, 02:11:39 am »
I purchased the VCollection 4 this week and I'm having issues with a couple of the instruments.

In the case of the 2600V the audio is fine for the first few minutes of use, then it begins either cutting out or there's a very high pitched whine (not unlike what one would expect with the resonance set to self-oscillation - except in this case the resonance is all the way down at zero).

I'm using the instrument as a standalone (no DAW) on a 2012 Macbook Pro.  The CPU usage meter has not gone much above 20%, it isn't accompanied by pops and clicks so I doubt it's a buffer issue, and it happens whether I use my Steinberg UR44 interface or the built in output on the computer.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting this one?

I'm having issues with popping and clicking (audio artifacts) also since I purchased The V Collection and I'm not sure why. Hopefully someone can help provide some insight. I have a Scarlett 2i2 interface and haven't had any issues with other music software.

I think everyone is experiencing this in some kind of way. It's certainly buffer related.

The fact you are removing the audio I/O and playing through your default mac outputs and it gives you the same errors suggests it's software. So given that there's a lot of buffer related threads on here, i'll put my money on that.

Does it improve when you increase it?

@ childofsaturn

Remove your audio I/O from the chain and play through your normal machine outputs. Do you get the same errors?
