I am getting pops and clicks in tracks I record using V2.0.5
I’m using a 2006 Mac Mini 1.5GHz, core solo with 4G RAM, 256M cache and 500G hard drive with plenty of free space.
I recorded some tracks using V2.0.4 with no problems other than the occasional record hang, the tracks I recorded sounded great. I upgraded to V2.0.5 and laid some more tracks down on my project and the newly recorded tracks has clicks and pops… sounded kind of random but there is an underlying regularity to their interval in the tracks.
I did a test of recording two tracks at different times and then visually scanned the waveforms for clicks and pops. When I located them I noticed that the clickpops were in the same locations on the two tracks but of varying severity between the two, this probably accounted for the somewhat random sound and intervals they produced.
I have not tossed out my V2.0.4 yet, should I revert back or is there something I might try like changing the record buffer size or sacrificing to some god or waiting for 2.0.6 before upgrading from 2.0.4?
There was a bug that got introduced after 2.0.4 into the alpha testing versions produced for 2.0.5 - but the change that caused that was reverted by the developers before 2.0.5 was released - so I’m surprised you’re getting this.
When I was testing (with the bug) I was getting clicks at every 5.5 seconds or multiples of 5.5: 11, 16.5, 22 seconds.
I tested for this carefully on the 2.0.5 Release Candidates and could not replicate that clicky behaviour on my Windows 7 64-bit Toshiba laptop
What source are you recording from? Are you using the computer’s on-board soundcard or an external USB soundcard?
