    While listening to the playback when I record a track, I hear some crakling while using Cool edit pro 2.

    The funny thing is that I used the same echo mia soundcard, but this is a new version of cool edit pro.

    So I was thinking it could be something that gets wrong.
    I'm using a P-4 2.4 ghz with 2gig ram.
    So it's plenty.

    I discover that inside my PC was a lot of dust.Could be that.

    Anyway, if someone can help before I change my soundcard.

    i've found that if i record with any plugins running i get clicks and pops on my audio track, im not sure if you were recording to another track that already had a plugin being used on it but if you were you might want to try to disable the plugin then record the part again. hopefully this helps!

    Increase the buffer size.

    This happens by recording the first track, I can't even do a second one because of this constant noise.

    What would you guys suggest as another software?

    I think I already played with the buffer size, without any change in sound.
    Do I have to reboot my PC when changing buffer size or it makes changes instantly?

    I found a lot of dust inside my PC hardware connection, motherboard and I was thinking maybe it corrupts my data by doing some static???

    Check the IRQ for your sound card. If it's 15 or higher, it's a "shared" IRQ, and will suck. You'll need to go into your bios and disable old junk like floppy drives and parallel ports that no one uses, but PCs still give preference to.
