    audio crackling sounds

    I am editing .mov files in avid 7.0.5. The last two video projects I've worked on has had an audio issue of making crackling sounds while playing clips in the timeline. The crackling sounds are not always heard at certain timecode spots and seem to vary how frequently the crackling is heard. Generally the issue of crackling sounds and audio error messages become more frequent the more edits I make in the timeline. I also hear the crackling sounds from the exported videos.

    Do you have an I/O device attached?

    Could it be a sample rate issue?

    The only I/O decices I've been using are a keyboard plugged in through a usb cord and have been using wireless mouse. Do you know of either of these to be known to cause issues with software?

    As a long shot if it is easy for you to uninstall MC 7.0.5 and then reinstall then I would try that.   I used to get your sort of issue a very long time ago when my DigiIO preference was corrupting. Forcing MC to rebuild this IO used to work for me.

    If you are speaking of uninstalling my Avid 7.0.5 and reinstall, I have already tried that with no imrovement. I also trashed my user profile just in case, and also no improvement.

    I suppose this is worth trying, although I am only having issues with avid, and nothing else.

    I AMA linked my files then transcoded all my video clips before begining to edit. When I do an audio mixdown, I still hear some crackling sounds.

    Re: audio crackling sounds

    If you export this mixdown as a Wav file and listen to it at the desktop level, are crackles still present?

    Re: audio crackling sounds

    Don't know how extensive your audio plugin collection is but try one of these on the audio. I checked my UAD set and it does not include this type. If it works this should buy you time to trouble shoot and still get you project in "on time"

    Re: audio crackling sounds

    I'm not sure this type of plugin will work because it's not a matter of eliminating crackle at certain points. The crackling sounds come and go and and are heard at different locations and not at specific timecodes. I also get frequent error messages that will not allow me to continue to play through the timeline until I save or render. This becomes more frequent the more edits I make.
