Windows 10

Cubase 9.5.30

For instance, loading the patch "acoustic bass", I experience a crackling not so much hitting one key on a keyboard (or square on a LinnStrument) but when I run my finger across the keys, or a cross a row of squares on something like the Linn. But it does still happen from time to time just hitting one key or pad at a time too.

It's intermittent, volume levels aren't maxing out at all. Any suggestions to curb the crackle?

Thanks in advance.

Are you quite sure it's not the cpu/audio buffer? Sorry if the suggestion is too obvious...

My guess would also be CPU use. If you turn the number of voices down to 1 it's an easy way to check this without messing with audio buffer sizes. Increasing the audio buffer size can be an effective fix.
