1 - General issues report

To enable Acustica Audio agents to assist you with your problem, please provide a complete system hardware report as well as a complete description of the problem you're experiencing, including the exact error text and/or error number you're getting. By complete we mean describe exactly what's occurring in as much detail as possible, what you're doing when the problem occurs, what any relevant settings are, list any troubleshooting steps you've tried, as well as any other information that may be relevant as:

  • Screen capture with product settings and/or error messages.

  • Video screen capture with the steps to reproduce the wrong behavior.

  • Audio file in WAV format.

  • Audio host(s) (DAW/NLE) session where wrong behavior can be reproduced.


The more detail you can provide, the easier it is for us to help you. If you do not provide enough information, we are just going to be referring you back here until you do. This is important - we're not asking you because we feel like it, but because we need the information to troubleshoot properly. We can't see your system, how you are working, what your settings are, or anything like that, so please provide that information so we have solid info to work with.
