Hi

I am using cool edit pro 2.1 and some finished songs are fine as sessions and fine as mp3 mixdowns- then randomly they start to distort and crackle and all saved playing and wavs are lost in a total mess of distortion and crackle....anyone know why and how to stop it?

Its random...and doesnt happen every time- I have used it for years and years and its only just started doing it.

I have unistalled and re-installed in case that helped and it hasnt..

any feedback woudl be appreciated...all my back catalogue is on cool edit so yes i know i can use another daw and am slowly transferring my old tracks over to cubase but still need to solve this issue

the file sizes are much smaller than what they should be after doing a mixdown
For starters, if this is true, there is something seriously wrong. Be more specific: what is happening to file size? what do you expect and why? what do you get?

For starters, if this is true, there is something seriously wrong.
WAV file size is stored-bitdepth x sample rate x channels x time-in-seconds + a tiny header. You should only be using WAV files.

Only explanation for different file size is operator error or lossy (e.g. mp3) files.

If you mixdown 8 16-bit files for CD, the result is still a 16-bit file - you don't magically get a 8x16=128-bit file.

Cheers,
David.
