Audition 2019 Popping Bug with Focusrite Scarlett 18i20
This issue only affects Audition 2019 v12.x with the Scarlett hardware.
If I use v12.x with the motherboard audio it is fine.
If I use v11.1.1 with the Scarlett or motherboard it is fine.
Audition 2019 v12.x, all versions, have an issue with clicking and popping when using the Scarlett.
Audition 2018 v11.1.1 and all other Windows audio applications on the system will work perfectly fine.
The clicking and popping is not seen in the waveform display, and randomly occurs when playing back audio in Audition 2019.
If I record a new audio file with all Scarlett inputs at zero, the audio file shows no waveform data like it is supposed to so no clicks are being generated by the hardware etc, and playback of this zero input audio file has no clicking and popping either.
It is only when a file has audio in it that the clicking and popping occurs randomly at the same level as what is currently played back.
The clicking and popping occurs about once every 30 seconds in v12.0, and almost continually in v12.1.1.
If I generate a tone or chord, and play that back, it also has random clicking and popping in v12.x.
I cannot use any of the 2019 v12.x versions, only 2018 11.1.1 works without the clicking and popping issue with the Scarlett.
I have tried everything from other drivers to other USB ports and cables, unplugging all other devices etc. Audition 2019 V12.x and the Scarlett 18i20 just do not get along.
My setup: i7-6800K, ASUS RoG Gaming X99, Corsair 32GB DDR4 2133, AMD W7100 Workstation graphics, WD Blue SSD boot, Windows 10 Pro x64 latest build, Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 Rev1 with latest firmware and with latest Scarlett MixControl driver 1.10. The only software on the computer is Audition, Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere, DaVinci Resolve, Macrium Reflect.
If you need any more information send me a note.

After days of swapping out virtually every component in my system including a different model motherboard, processor, and memory... the issue appears to be: AMD 7000 series workstation video cards. Go figure
