Happy new ER-301 user here - I was building up a set centered around pre-recorded (unsliced) loops each fired by a dedicated card player. A bunch of effect units - each in its own container with own dedicated vca - as the effect chain. CPU hovering around 25%, 30% Nothing to write home about… The total combined file size, of all loops, is around 120Mb… 160 top.
Random intermittent clicks and pops. hmmm
Interesting thing is the CPU % actually drops down at the same time that clicks occur… I would have expected the opposite… I.e. a spike.
Anyway - I later realized that a number of loops were 16bit some other 24bit. Changed all to 16bits - gone are the clicks and pops. Which is great. I didn’t try changing all files to 24bit yet but I would expect it would work the same? I.e. It appears that the mismatch between the file’s resolution (of loops played at the same time) is to blame.
Perhaps this is a known (and expected) behaviour, and apologies if I miss it, or perhaps there is another reason and someone else can shed some light?
