Default Steinberg UR44 Driver Issues (pops/crackles)

Hi there,

Hope everyone is having a great day.

I am running Reaper on Windows 10, using a Steinberg UR44 interface. My issue is with pops/crackles that occur during recording and playback.

I have taken all possible steps to optimise Windows10 for audio/recording as per this link provided in another thread:


The driver I am using is the latest Steinberg USB driver (1.10.4), and I have mucked around with the buffer setting for the device. The pops/crackles occur about 3 times a minute and are enough to make for a bad recording and/or listening experience. I have not noticed any pronounced CPU spikes that correlate with the pops/crackles.

I have also tried using the ASIO4ALL driver. This actually eliminates the problem (thus confirming that it is a driver issue), but when I am using this driver, only two inputs are visible (HD Audio Microphone 1 & 2) which means that (a) I can't utilise all available inputs, and (b) When I try to listen to old recordings, there is no sound output, possible relating to the output range being restricted to "HD Audio Speaker 1" and "HD Audio Speaker 2".

Any help or advice in this matter would be greatly appreciated!
