Hi, new here. I've been using Cakewalk Home Studio 2004 for a long time, but it is fairly old, so after reading a lot of reviews, downloaded Reaper for trial. I like it a lot, think it sounds great, easy to use, etc. But I notice when playing back the tracks, there is a distinct "thump" as the audio begins. Will this disappear once the tracks are rendered to a stereo wave file? Does anyone know what I'm talking about here? My Home Studio 2004 software does not do this, and I'm doing nothing different in Reaper. This is an artifact of the software, not a noise I am making at the beginning of the recording. I would really like to switch to Reaper, as I think it sounds much better. But not if every song begins with a thump, like someone dropped the arm on an LP. Any help or answers appreciated.
