If the studio produces crackling, glitchy, lagging sounds or random silence, try some of the following suggestions:
- Make sure you're not running a lot of power consuming programs on your computer, as they can slow down the performance of Soundtrap.
- Try reducing the playback sound quality. Go to Settings -> Sound quality and select "Low" (1).
- Try the "Freeze track" feature. Click on the ellipses menu in the track header and choose "Freeze track (free up CPU)". This will temporarily "freeze" the track from editing, but it will reduce the CPU usage a whole lot. A snowflake icon will show above the instrument icon for indication that it's "frozen" (2). (If you wish to "unfreeze" the track, click on the ellipses menu again and click "Unfreeze track")
(1) Settings -> Sound quality -> Low
(2) Freeze track
