Windows update 1803 problems

Post by 12bar » Mon Jun 18, 2018 9:14 am

After the latest Win10 update (1803) it's nearly impossible to record with my Line6 gear - cracks, drop-outs, noise is coming from the speaker.
Anyone with the same experience?
Google says some apps try to grad the audio driver, but I found no working solutions...

Sometimes even the playback of audio files, videos or Youtube hangs. :wall:

Sorry to hear that Gerd, and I'm afraid I can't help. :sad:

I'm using Windows 7 .... and a copy with auto updates switched off too.

Hopefully someone with the same problem will come up with a workaround and publicise it so it shows up on Google.

Good luck!

Just back from holiday, did all latest Win10 updates and a BIOS update and - it works again! :chicken:
Don't know why, but no more drop-outs, no cracks, nothing :dance:

Good news for you! :banana:
Hope you had a good holiday.

I remember when Vista did an update and all my homeplugs that I use for a network stopped working.
A bit of an expensive free update was that!

Happy recording. :thumbsup:

OK, so I wanted to record some Blues for lost dogs (see other thread), but...

:wall: Next Win10 update, this time other problems. The cracks are back, I also get a second tone half a second later and a semitone deeper. Seems to be related to 44.1 kHz, but all settings are OK, both system and line 6 in and out set to default CD (44.1) quality. I give up on Line6.

Put my Duo Capture mk2 back and installed Amplitube free for testing. :fingerscrossed:

Good luck with the testing Gerd. :fingerscrossed:
It does seem like you have a losing battle trying to get Line6 behaving.
