I have VE on two PC's and my main Mac daw. Everything works well, except on one PC I'm getting random audio drops, crackles and glitches. It's on a 2core Duo with Win7. Nothing running on it except VE Pro. One thing I noticed, and I've noticed this with some of the later versions of VE2 on my other machines - the graphics in VE can be related to the audio glitches. There is definitely something going on that is graphic related.
Since I have an ongoing issue with graphics with VE2 on another machine, a P4 3.0, I tried the same thing that I have to use in that one - which is close or hide any VE graphic while playing back. I tried the same on the VE Pro/ 2core duo machine, and all the glitches went away.
Also, when I open the GUI of any Vienna suite plug inside of the VE Pro slave, the audio drop outs get significantly worse, unplayable at that point. Close the plug GUI's and the glitches reduce greatly, though still occasionally there. Hide all VE GUI's and the glitches go away completely.
It makes me wonder if others that are having audio glitches are running into the same thing.
Any ideas on how to solve this?
