Hi all,

After upgrading to VEP 6, I tried opening a project created with Master and Slave VEP 5 Servers, which used to play back perfectly fine. The Master VEP 6 Server samples play back without issue, but the Slave VEP 6 Server samples crackle. Any idea why this might be happening?

I'm having the same issue, though it is only on the PC slave. I don't run VE Pro on the DAW machine. I do also have two Mac slaves, and they work fine. The DAW machine is a PC running Cubase 8.5.x. For two years, the PC slave worked perfectly with VE Pro 5. Nothing about the hardware or OS had changed; just the upgrade to VE Pro 6. Now I am faced with rolling back to VE Pro 5, and am not happy about this. I have tried every troubleshooting path I can think of, both in VE Pro and Cubase.

I just added a new PC Slave to my rig and it appears that I too have the crackle issue? Anyone know how to fix this yet? VEPRO 6 Server on Windows.

I posted earlier on this topic, and have since tried out the following:

For this project, I was only using the satellite PC (running VE Pro 6) for one instrument, an acoustic guitar from Cinematic Guitars (within Kontakt). I've used that PC for two years with zero problems. The guitar part crackled randomly every time I played back the sequence from Cubase.

If I record-enable the instrument track and play it live, it doesn't crackle, with the sequence running or stopped. 

I then switched the sample rate of the whole project from 48k to 44.1, and the cracking disappeared. If I switch back to 48k, the crackling shows up again, again only when I play back the recorded MIDI data from Cubase. If I play it live, it's fine.

Then, I installed Cimematic Guitars on the main DAW PC, loaded the same guitar instrument within Kontakt (no VE Pro), and the crackling showed up again. 

The way I got through the project was to render the guitar part as audio at 44.1k, then sample rate convert it to 48k, so that I could bring it into the original project. 

I still don't have a solution for this, and don't know where to point the problem; VE Pro 6, Kontakt, or the specific library. Because the also crackling occured within the DAW PC, it leads me to think it's not VE Pro 6, but I still think it was worth posting here.

Anyone have any ideas about this? Much appreciated.
