I notice when i use a few different VST’s, it tends to happen then. The more i add, there worse it gets. Most of VST’s come straight from their manufacturers website. A couple of 3rd party VST’s from random sites. The playback is the problem, once record it’s fine. Need a solution?

    No. You must experiment with what’s best with your computer (and for projects with these heavy demanding instruments). And find a compromise with latency

    Try to check buffer size and sample rate options in audio preferences.

    Some instruments are really demanding, therefore using them causes more troubles

    What should the buffering size and sample rate be set on? Or is there standard for those?

    It would also be useful to know what your audio interface is and OS, if Windows what is your audio driver (ASIO, WASAPI...)?

    I have a MacOS with an Apollo Twin Interface. MK3 hardware with Maschine DAW.

    Been getting a popping & crackling sound myself , I thought, "it can't be monitor speakers, they're new"

    (And I don't think it is, because the same sounds persisted when I had only the tiny speakers engaged in my PC)

    This aggravating noise seems to come and go, and is almost simultaneous with the draw or perceived loudness of the sample, whether it be a kick drum, synth sound, or whatever.

    Any help / advice deeply appreciated in advance! PLEASE HELP
