I normally do not keep the computer hooked to the 'net.

I ran LatencyMon last night, it immediately reported that there were problems with the audio, possibly caused by 'CPU throttling' and BIOS issues.
I updated BIOS (I had disabled all automatic updating a long time ago), and it took some time to complete, so will try out things tonight to see if anything improves.
I don't think the power-throttling is the real issue, because the crackling is happening even when there is just a single track in the Reaper project.

My music:

2017 Taylor 114ce-N
2012 Taylor 310ce
2011 Fender CD140SCE
Ibanez 12 string a/e
73 Epiphone 6830E 6 string (made in 71?)

72 Fender Telecaster
Epiphone Dot Studio
Epiphone LP Jr
Chinese Strat clone ($25!)

Kala baritone ukulele
Seagull 'Merlin'
Washburn Mandolin
Luna 'tatoo' a/e ukulele
antique banjolin
Squire J bass
