    MC 2021.3 - Big Sur - Audio clipping / dropout on cuts / dissolves / keyframes

    I'm having various different issues that seem to revolve around how this version of MC manages it's audio playback.

     

    This particular one is quite annoying as when playing a cut and the playhead moves over a dissolve or keyframed audio clip, the audio does a combination of dropping out and / or repeating a couple of frames. Makes listening to the edit quite jarring.

     

    This is without an IO device connected so it's not a IO driver issue. I have 2 Genelecs connected via the headphone port (mini-jack to XLR splitter). This is a new 2020 iMac purchased a month ago, I was using the same connection with my laptop beforehand without the same issues occuring.

    I've tried different users and trashed MCState / Sitsettings but it persists.

    Any ideas?

    Avid media. I've noticed it will drop the audio sporadically out when playing over video cuts aswell.

    Is this with linked media or Avid media?

    No idea I'm afraid. If it was only linked media that would be one thing but if its doing it on Avid media then it rules out a range of things.

    I assume the drive its coming off of is fast?

    OK, it seems to start happening after waking my computer from sleep mode having left the Avid on. If I restart the Avid after it wakes from sleep mode, the problem stops.
