I've been working with X for a while and been suffering from pops et al despite very
little hardship on the processor (iMac i7 16Gb Ram, RME FF800, recording to external Disk,
I/O buffer 64 samples). I notice that there is a CPU spike before (or after the pop -
dependant on how quick the performance monitor is), anyway I was trying to eliminate
possible culprits and I seemed to have sorted it on my system...........believe it or not
it was the metronome polyphonic click setting!!!! (which on Logic 9 I always had on
monophonic) - anyway since changing it back to monophonic (presumably defaults in X to
polyphonic?) - instant silence (apart from the piano that was meant to be there)
share for two reasons;
1/If you are pulling your hair out try it - it might
work, (of course it might not for your system!) and is better than some of the
alternatives I've seen people suggest on some of the forums!
2/Does anyone have any
idea why - it seems almost magical really?
Anyway it works - I changed nothing
else and not had (that) problem since.
In fascination of software.....
