Default Softube Console 1 - Crackles with automation

Does any one have this problem ?
Automating knobs or switches on the Softube Console 1 results in noticeable crackling when the track is played back.

I have 2 Console 1's purchased in May 2018 and they have always had the problem on both my Late 2013 Mac Pro and my 2017 5K iMac.

Throughout this time I have kept all versions of the software and operating systems up to date.

In May 2018 Softube stated that this is a known problem and said that they are working on it, but they also said that they have had very few reports of this happening.

If any Console 1 owners would be interested in testing this problem on their system I'd be very interested in hearing the results.

Many thanks

Can anyone confirm that they can use Console 1 with automation without getting crackles?

I still have this problem.

Many thanks

Hey there
I’ll give it a try tomorrow. I’ve had my C1 for a few years now with no issues. Never done any automation with it though.
What sample rate are you working with?
The automation moves your writing, are they filter changes, compression changes, or module mutes, ie turning off the eq section?
I’m curious now.
Cheers

Hey there,

Tried some automation with Console 1. Did some hi & Lo pass filter sweeps and some threshold moves on the comp. No issues regarding crackling on playback.
Cheers

Thanks very much for doing this test.

To answer your previous question, I get extreme crackling when automating any of the knobs and module mutes.

However I've just done another test on my iMac, and was surprised to find that I only get the crackling on buffer settings of 512 and below. With the buffer set to 1024 I couldn't hear any crackles. I'm using the latest version of Pro Tools and Console 1 software.

I'm interested to know what buffer setting you were using.
Cheers

I tried the automation on an existing mix so my buffer was set to 1024.

Cheers
