Hi, does anyone else experience audio crackles while loading GUI from some VSTi? Especially Kontakt, Diva and Stylus RMX are causing this, when i open the GUI or switch the pages of them.

I use this workaround and it works for me:

delete "info.plist" from "users/[yourusername]/Library/Application Support/Bitwig/Bitwig Studio/Applications/Bitwig Plug-in Host" and from "Bitwig Plug-in Host" and " Bitwig Studio"

I have also problems with this. I have not experienced it with previous versions, but with 1.2 this problem has occured to me too. The latest version of 1.1 still works fine for me. Must have been some changes in 1.2 that has introduced this for me.

I can't confirm this since I am on Windows 8.1 Pro x64, but you also can make a support ticket and add some information like: - Which OS you're on: OSX/Linux/Windows and version. - What type of audiointerface are you using - Which version of bitwig are you on. (Latest is 1.1.5) - Etc

You can make a support ticket via:

Hope this helps.

If you're on MacOS, you could try to turn off transparency effects in MacOS - those are known to cause problems on some machines.

Edit: Oh, if this only happens when loading VSTs, try to switch the Plugin processing mode in the Plug-in Management tab to seperate the VSTs from each other, that might help.

Hi, I meant OSX 10.10.1 Yosemite.

Transparency is already turned off.

I have the same problem

Crackle when loading GUI from some Tone2 VSTi like ElektraX!

No problem if the VST is not shown.

This problem remain with the 1.2 and an update to El Capitan. I experience some crackle when i open up GUI VST or even menu bar of bitwig.
