Follow these steps to eliminate audio clicks and pops on your Apogee-equipped Windows system
- Use the LatencyMon utility to check the performance of your Windows computer, as described in this link: http://www.apogeedigital.com/pdf/Windows-LatencyMon-Guide.pdf
- ONCE LatencyMon displays the message “Your system appears to be suitable for handling real-time audio and other tasks without dropouts”. Until issues indicated by LatencyMon are resolved, no other measures will resolve clicks and pops.
- In Apogee Maestro’s System tab, set the Preferred Buffer Size to a higher value until the problem is resolved.
- If the DAW session is stored on the same hard drive as Windows, connect a second high-speed drive and move the DAW session to it.
