I have searched the forum and google for this, but all I find is people having issues of no sound at all, whether it be out of ableton, or a track or a vst... but for me it is single audio clips and midi notes... and more and more I'm getting clicks and milliseconds of audio cutting out, even in the exported tracks sometimes

I have a small audio clip, very small, just a single sample maybe half second long... it's in the arrangement view and it has been playing fine for weeks now... all of a sudden it's not playing this one sound... the whole tracks plays all the little sounds that are arranged throughout the song, but this one that i copied twice in row isn't playing at all... I've checked all my automation, panning, levels, volume (master, track, input/output, clip, etc...), even my Effectrix VST to make sure it's not using some volume cutout type effect at that point in the song... so i solo the track and zoom to the clips and to try to play just the clip, no sound... until i do it 7 or 8 times and it puts out sound once, totally random!

this has been happening with my midi clips for my synths too... Some of my midi notes arent playing, usually if i save, close start live backup it works again... but it's getting worse and more frequent, and it cuts off notes that are supposed to be sustained

I've gone to extensive lengths to make sure it's not something I'm doing, but when I press play 10 times and change absolutely nothing, and only hear the same thing MAYBE twice... there's a problem with my program... Isn't there like a preferences reset thing??? somebody told me about that but didn't really know anything specific... seems like all of this is related to the same problem, of audio randomly cutting out

Thanks a lot,

Nobody has this issue???? I have a very important audio clip in a song that isn't playing... when I stretch it to full length it plays fine, but when I crop it, it only plays sometimes.... and by sometimes I mean like 1 out of 10 times I play it. Is there anything that might be causing this??


The issue with the short clicks, I've noticed happens when I turn devices on and off, although I have even made sure there is no sound output on the track where the device is being turned off... but I still hear clicks in the rest of the tracks... this is happening on my exported and bounced audio files too.

any ideas??
