Aside from the inconvenience what is the issue with adjusting the buffers while recording and editing RPro and freezing the synth when lower settings are desired?

I am not sure it will help but have you played around with the ExtraPluginBufs setting in AUD.ini?

I've not done that.  I'll investigate and report back if I notice a change. 

Changing the buffer settings and freezing the synth is what I'm doing now, it's just not a very graceful solution.  The big thing is that I want to understand why it's happening more than anything else.  Why is just the Rapture Pro sound library giving me problems?  If it really is a buffer problem, shouldn't all of the libraries be affected?

I did not yet go back and read ALL the posts in this thread, but am wondering what happens to your audio pops and such if you temporarily Bypass All Effects by hitting the 'E' key on your computer keyboard, and then try recording something with Rapture Pro on whatever sound is giving all these issues.
 
(after testing the above, hitting 'E' again will turn all the loaded effects back on).

And, I believe I recall a set of steps you posted prior, which I recall mentioned using a simple instrument track for this instance of Rapture Pro.
 
Is there any difference at all if you load the Rapture Pro into the synth rack, and use a separately inserted audio and midi track for it, rather than the simple instrument track?

I had similar problems with audio pops/cracking on especially complex Rapture Pro sounds.  I found this excellent free downloadable pdf with lots of computer settings to set/change to improve digital audio.  I think it was one of the Power Mgt settings or turning off disk indexing that made the difference for me.  Now I am able to get my latency much lower with no problems so far.  I'm still investigating further suggestions in the doc.

Extrapluginbufs didn't work.  Still no word from support either.

Jack, call support. I've never had luck with email.

I make some videos. This one shows how to do a physical loopback on the RME UCX to get many more equalizer nodes.

I know I'm late to the party, but are you using any of the Win 10 Power management options that has a Minimum Processor State of less than 100%? I find that Cakewalk products are very sensitive to this setting.

I think I finally found a promising lead in the case everyone.  After reviewing this thread:  http://forum.cakewalk.com/CPU-Core-1-Maxing-Out-m3366417.aspx   - I went into the Config file and set the MMCSS ThreadPriority to a value of 2.   My understanding is that this gives SONAR access to an extra CPU processing thread on quad-core and above systems, but I'm not a developer and couldn't explain it in proper technical terms.    Could someone give a more thorough explanation?

Anyway, the situation with Rapture Pro has improved as a result.  I was able to set the audio buffer to a more respectable 128, and the pops seem to have gone away.  I'm still testing it out but this is much better than before.

I made this video showing the thing I was talking about with the voices.
