Loud click / crackle noise when switching guitarix effects

I experience very loud clicking/crackling noise when I switch on/off sound effects in Guitarix.
My setup:
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Zynthian Gorgona (Based on Raspbian / Debian 8 Jessie)
Kernel 4.9.35-v7+ #1014 SMP
Audio Injector Stereo Sound Card
jackd 1.9.10

/usr/bin/jackd -T -ndefault -u -dalsa -r48000 -p128 -n4 -s -m -S -H -D -Chw:audioinjectorpi,0 -Phw:audioinjectorpi,0

Changes to sample rate, frames/period and periods/buffer do not help.

Code: Select all

The noise occurs on any effect plugin (ladspa and lv2). It happens when I run guitarix with or without GUI and regardless of the way I toggle the effect (Midi footswitch or Mouse)

I wanted to use the pi with the AudioInjector Card as a multi effect machine. I tested the same software setup with a Behringer USB Audio Interface and did not get any noise. Unfortunately the jackd crashes from time to time when using many effects via USB.
The AudioInjector setupt runs perfectly stable over many days but is not usable with this noise.

Any help apreciated.
