I am experiencing audio dropouts, clicks and pops with my Firepod/Cubase setup. When I create a new project and begin to record, the scroll bar on the ruler tends to pause and then skips forward. The pops/clicks and audio dropouts follow. Here are the facts about my DAW: -Toshiba laptop P4, 768 rams (available physical memory around 477mb), 2.8 GHz, 60GB hard drive. -I have changed all CPU setting from High to low in combination with latency. -I have messed with some of the buffers (although, I'm not sure if I've noticed a difference). -I have unistalled/reinstalled firepod drivers 2(x). -I have also tried to maximize my computer performance (ie. firewalls, background programs, internet on/off, etc.). I've just purchased this system and can't get passed go. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
