Fizzing and spluttering


Recommended Posts



I installed native a few nights ago and it was working fine. I was so impressed.


Today when I fired up Tracktion I get a fizzing and spluttering when I play. I've tried increasing the buffer size and it's still the same. I have changed nothing. The cpu usage does look to be quite high in the DAW monitor.


Any ideas?


Thank you for your time.

I've had another play and I think maybe down to my computer specification.


It's a windows10 laptop with an i5 processor and 6 gig of ram.


It is fine with only one track, but if I add more than one track, even just a drum loop without any processing the cpu usage goes through the roof. And real time monitoring becomes not an option.

Hi again,


Thank you very much twpmeister for pointing me in the right direction.


I did a bit of research and downloaded a latency checker. Loads of problems were being reported.

The report suggested that there might be cpu throttling going on. I changed the power plan from balanced to maximum performance and now it works perfectly The latency checker instantly reported no problems.


Thank you so much twpmeister for the help.
