Audio Crackle - Alesis Control Hub

Post by Rondobotic » Fri Dec 04, 2015 5:09 am

HI there,

I am not certain this is a sunvox bug but the problem is much more apparent when using sunvox.

After about 15min - 30min I get a constant crackle on audio playback.

When using reaper this often comes in then goes away after a bit or if i restart the hub (off/on again).

In Sunvox when the crackle comes in it stays and I have to move to headphones straight to my PC.

I have audio out from the control hub to my left and right monitors and the audio is processed via USB to my alienware laptop.

Is sunvox not being happy with the Alesis driver perhaps?

I have just raised this here as it is alot more apparent in sunvox.

If I have put this in the wrong section (As I am certain that sunvox isnt the main problem) I will delete the post and search elswhere!

Thanks!!

Maybe try some different buffer sizes?

could that affect the driver for the alesis sound hub?

I dont know much about all the ins and outs, I did have previously a usb mixing desk set up to monitor, but it was too big in my room, thats why i got the control hub, i never had crackle with the desk.

the crackle sounds like distortion when the sound is played, not so much like buffering or clipping.

I will try and record it and put it up.

but I am open to suggestions so i will try changing up the buffers.

I did think it was odd that it was more apparent in sunvox.

I havent noticed anything with normal playback only when using DAW's maybe it is the ASIO driver aswell. Asio4All I use.

Hi! Sorry for delay...
So what driver do you use now (i mean the SunVox preferences)? ASIO?
And what driver is installed in your system: ASIO from Alesis or Asio4All?

No problems NR!

I use ASIO4All on my system and I have ASIO selected in sunvox.

ASIO4ALL points to my USB Alesis control hub.

I will need to check however I am pretty sure the crackle was still there when changing over to auto settings in sunvox and in my sound manager I set control hub as default.

The crackle doesnt happen with playback from web pages or media players, just in the DAW's.

It might be an ASIO thing.

I will see if there are any driver updates this weekend.

Please also try to change the Sampling frequency to 48000 (in the SunVox preferences).
