When my guitar is through record monitoring (the only way I can hear my guitar with the effects and amp Sims on) it starts to glitch and crackle/pop. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions ? I thought upgrading from a ....ty laptop would let me record and mix at lower latencies so maybe its the interface? I dont see why.... it seems like a decent interface.
There are a whole miriad of reasons this might be happening.
Firstly, what is the processor, AMD or Intel?
Next, have you got the latest drivers for the interface?
After that, what is your buffer setting at?
Have you tried different USB ports to make sure you're not using a USB 1.1 port?
