    After Effects causes a clicking sound in other apps' audio playback

    Nick Hill

      Setup: Windows Vista x64, Production Premium CS4, Dell Precision T7400, M-Audio Delta 44 soundcard, NVidia Quadro 3700 graphics. All drivers up to date.


      I've noticed recently that when After Effects is loaded it causes a horrible clicking sound in the audio output of other apps - like Spotify and iTunes. Premiere and other CS4 apps don't do this. I've tried turning off multiprocessor rendering (as the audio mixer app was showing up lots of instances of After Effects) and disabling OpenGL, but this hasn't had any effect.


      The clicking sounds very crackly, like a dead cable, but the audio (and therefore the cables) are fine when AE isn't running.
