ok, no matter what I do I am still getting lots of pops and cracks in my audio. It happens in Cubase with just one audio track and in GS so its not one of their problems. I have a PIII 550, 256 megs of ram, two ultra dma66 hard drives etc. etc. so this shouldn\'t be a problem. Also whenever I am using a direct x plugin and I move the parameter around the audio is terrible!!! Can someone please help and tell me what I am doing wrong. This is about to drive me crazy.
