Topic: Weird noises and sounds like explosions
Something weird is happening with the sound output of my AIO.
I use my AIO as my main soundcard, I often watch and follow youtube instruction videos while Cubase is open, so that I can follow along. For the past month or so, I've noticed that when I click on the next youtube video, there seems to be a sound that I can only describe as a fast forward screech, as if the AIO card or some buffer is dumping any remnants of audio data. I never noticed this before as it is loud enough to make me jump out of my skin everytime (I listen through my headphones).
I kind of dismissed it, I guess I got used to it but today was the worst ever. I loaded up VEPro, then connected Cubase and it sounded like explosions, like it was playing back samples of explosions. The first time it happened, I had my headphones on as usual and it hurt my ears. So I removed my headphones and tried it again. I am so glad I removed my headphones. Thing is, once everything is loaded, it seems to work fine apart from the occasional pop or click when playing instruments.
I've update the firmware on the card recently and I've updated Windows 10 too. Are there any utilities or diagnostic tools that can check to see if the card is okay or maybe the interaction between drivers and firmware is working properly.
