Popping and Cracking sounds during set on Traktor 3 pro

Hi everyone,

Recently I've been experiencing popping and cracking sounds during set playing on Traktor 3 pro. It usually happens a couple of minutes after I start playing and when the two decks are playing.

I have tried to update the BIOS driver and it didn't work, I also tried to play with the buffer size and increase the buffer offset.

I use Traktor 3 pro + Traktor control s2 mk3 I use asio2all as an audio device (in order to use my laptop's speaker). The problem is still present even if I play without the controller.

I downloaded latency moon and ran the test, the results and system specs are below:


CONCLUSION

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates. 

LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:01:02 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.


Highest measured interrupt to process latency (µs):  431.70

Average measured interrupt to process latency (µs):  10.098262


Highest measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs):    427.10

Average measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs):    4.094526

 REPORTED ISRs

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Interrupt service routines are routines installed by the OS and device drivers that execute in response to a hardware interrupt signal.


Highest ISR routine execution time (µs):       84.640556

Driver with highest ISR routine execution time:    Wdf01000.sys - Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime, Microsoft Corporation


Highest reported total ISR routine time (%):     0.009335

Driver with highest ISR total time:          Wdf01000.sys - Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime, Microsoft Corporation


Total time spent in ISRs (%)             0.009507


ISR count (execution time <250 µs):          10182

ISR count (execution time 250-500 µs):        0

ISR count (execution time 500-1000 µs):        0

ISR count (execution time 1000-2000 µs):       0

ISR count (execution time 2000-4000 µs):       0

ISR count (execution time >=4000 µs):         0



_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

REPORTED DPCs

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

DPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.


Highest DPC routine execution time (µs):       2366.426667

Driver with highest DPC routine execution time:    ACPI.sys - ACPI Driver for NT, Microsoft Corporation


Highest reported total DPC routine time (%):     0.164039

Driver with highest DPC total execution time:     Wdf01000.sys - Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime, Microsoft Corporation


Total time spent in DPCs (%)             0.204994

DPC count (execution time 250-500 µs):        0

DPC count (execution time 500-10000 µs):       71

DPC count (execution time 1000-2000 µs):       2

DPC count (execution time 2000-4000 µs):       1

DPC count (execution time >=4000 µs):         0

 REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.


NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.


Process with highest pagefault count:         ekrn.exe


Total number of hard pagefaults            10

Hard pagefault count of hardest hit process:     4

Number of processes hit:               5
